Boity Jumps on 25K’s ‘Culture Vulture’ for a ‘La Femme’ Remix

Listen to a remix of 25K's 'Culture Vulture' featuring Boity.

Boity is on a roll. Last week Friday, SA hip-hop fans couldn't stop admiring her verse on Yanga's "Utatakho Remix." Today, 25K shared a remix of viral "Culture Vulture."


The song comes with a new verse from Boity. She raps, "25, I was on screen/ 29, I'm a rap queen/ Fast forward, 2019, me and 25 on the same beat," making reference to her pivot to rapping and her TV career.

The song is stripped off of all of 25K's verses, the PTa emcee only handles the hook. The beat remains unchanged, as was the case with the previous remix, which featured AKA and Emtee.

Just like all the verses we've heard from Boity, her appearance on the remix shows a rapper who is in control of her tongue and knows how to rap convincingly.

Boity dropped her first single last year, "Wuz Dat," featuring Nasty C, in 2018. Her follow-up single "Bakae" was released earlier this year. Boity appeared on the remix for Stogie T's "Original Recipe" single earlier this year. Last week, she appeared on Yanga's remix to "Utatakho."

Listen to "Culture Vulture La Femme Remix" below and revisit our interviews with Boity and 25K here and here.

This year, Afro Nation will touch down in Puerto Rico for the first time over spring break—from the 18th to the 21st of March—on the beach of Balneario de Carolina. Headliners will include Burna Boy, Chronixx, Davido, 2Baba, Naira Marley and many more.
