The single is a trippy hip-hop track that will leave Emtee fans satisfied. The song is about the hustle life and making ends meet. Lolli Native and Flash Ikumkani add hard Xhosa raps to the single and Emtee wraps up the track with a catchy hook. Emtee uses nostalgia and borrows inspiration for "Laqhasha" from the classic South African sitcomSgud' Snaysi starring the late Joe Mafela. Mafela played the main character S'dumo who never paid the rent on time. Emtee ends "Laqhasha" with a snippet from the show comprising voices with which South Africans are familiar.

The Logan album marks a career shift for Emtee as it's the first project he will be releasing under his label Emtee Records. This comes after he left Ambitiouz Entertainment after releasing two successful albums Avery and Manando and the EP DIY II. The release date for his third studio album Logan has been shifting but should finally be released on the 9th of April this year. This latest single "Laqhasha" follows "iThemba", "Waves" and "Johustleburg" which were all released as singles ahead of the album release.
