Beat Bangaz Are Superheroes In Their Latest Music Video For ‘Level It Out’ Featuring Zubz

Beat Bangaz and Zubz are here to save Capetonians from trash music.

Legendary Cape Town-based DJ and producer trio Beat Bangaz just released a music video for their song "Level It Out," which features veteran lyricist Zubz.


In the video, the three DJs (E20, Ready D and Azuhl) are on a quest to save Capetonians from listening to trash music, which is making them zombies of some sort who can't think straight. The trio use their DJ techniques. Zubz, who is only introduced towards the end of the video as an animated character, comes through with his 'golden mic attack.'

But just as Last Letta initiates his attack, the video comes to an end, and we are told it will be continued. We hope they stick to that promise because we can't live with the suspense.

The video is directed by the accomplished visual artist Roger Williams, who is responsible for the animation.

The song "Level It Out" is not just a dope collaboration by legends, but legends who are able to keep up with new trends without losing the essence of who they are. Zubz uses the triplet flow, which, though not new, is now a staple in new-school rap. The beat he raps over, which is produced by Ready D, also blends new and old school hip-hop elements.

"Level It Out" will be on the upcoming Beat Bangaz album 7785 Disrupters.

Wizkid Spoils Fans By Dropping the Music Video For 'No Stress'

Oh, you thought he was done for the day?

All in a day's work! Nigerian superstar Wizkid is climbing his way further and further up the charts (and our lists of favourites) by releasing visuals to accompany track "No Stress," off of his freshly released album Made In Lagos.

It's hard not to move to the track on its own, and now we have a plethora of beautiful African women to virtually jam out with. The release of the second single off the high anticipated MIL album comes as Wizkid toyed with fans by simply tweeting "No Stress."

So far, the album has amassed over a million streams in under 24 hours on Boomplay. The 14-track album features music heavy weights including Burna Boy, Skepta, Damian Marley, H.E.R., Ella Mai and Terri.

The album was originally meant to drop two weeks ago, but with the political and social terror occurring presently in his home country Nigeria, Wizkid chose to delay it.
