Download South African group BIG FKN GUN's ode to Durban street style "Gold Teeth & Carvelas," featuring Okmalumkoolkat and uSanele


South Africa's BIG FKN GUN come through with a head-nodding ode to their home city in "Gold Teeth & Carvelas" featuring Boyzn Bucks crew members Okamlumkoolkat and uSanele. According to group, the collaboration is a tribute to the "Durban township culture of gold teeth adorning youth... which is considered to be the highest fashion expression...The song is a nostalgic throwback to the high fashion era of the 90’s in Durban and SA townships." The track sees BIG FKN Gun rapper Bra Sol, Okamlumkoolkat and Usanele each taking turns weaving their own street style stories.

“This is a Durban connection that was waiting to happen and is long overdue," mentions Bra Sol in a press release, "we’re extremely excited to work with our brothers from the city that raised all of us, this is a proud moment having to represent our city out here in the city of gold.” Stream and download BIG FKN GUN, Okamlumkoolkat and uSanele's "Gold Teeth & Carvelas" below.
