Watch the First Episode of Emtee’s Cooking Show ‘Munchies With The GOAT’

Emtee shares recipes for "munchies, not meals" in his new cooking show.

No one expected it. But, well, a cooking show hosted by Emtee is now a thing that exists. The South African trap god debuted the first episode of the show called Munchies With The GOAT last week. In the first episode, Emtee shares a recipe for a 420 sandwich. After all, the show, as the man says during the episode, is all about sharing recipes for light meals that will come in handy as munchies.


In the episode you'll learn that Emtee likes listening to classical music when he cooks, and that he doesn't like butter much. Emtee is as much of a natural over beats as he is in the kitchen. He looks and sounds comfortable and relaxed as he takes you one step at a time through the making of a 420 cheese and bacon sandwich.

Munchies With The Goat is a new show created by the South African youth culture website Zkhiphani. "As part of Zkhiphani's rebranding and restructuring, we introduce a new show called Munchies With The GOAT," reads a line from the article introducing the show.

Emtee has been mired in drama in the highly publicized feud between the artist and Ambitiouz Entertainment, the label he was signed to for years. At the height of the feud, a lot of sensitive information was divulged that raised questions and, as one can imagine, dragged both their names in the mud.

It's great to see Emtee portrayed in a positive light after all that. A show that humanizes him couldn't have come at a better time. And, hopefully, new music will follow soon.

Interview: Buju Banton Is a Lyrical Purveyor of African Truth

A candid conversation with the Jamaican icon about his new album, Upside Down 2020, his influence on afrobeats, and the new generation of dancehall.

Devout fans of reggae music have been longing for new musical offerings from Mark Anthony Myrie, widely-known as the iconic reggae superstar Buju Banton. A shining son of Jamaican soil, with humble beginnings as one of 15 siblings in the close-knit community of Salt Lane, Kingston, the 46-year-old musician is now a legend in his own right.

Buju Banton has 12 albums under his belt, one Grammy Award win for Best Reggae Album, numerous classic hits and a 30-year domination of the industry. His larger-than-life persona, however, is more than just the string of accolades that follow in the shadows of his career. It is his dutiful, authentic style of Caribbean storytelling that has captured the minds and hearts of those who have joined him on this long career ride.

The current socio-economic climate of uncertainty that the COVID-19 pandemic has thrusted onto the world, coupled with the intensified fight against racism throughout the diaspora, have taken centre stage within the last few months. Indubitably, this makes Buju—and by extension, his new album—a timely and familiar voice of reason in a revolution that has called for creative evolution.

With his highly-anticipated album, Upside Down 2020, the stage is set for Gargamel. The title of this latest discography feels nothing short of serendipitous, and with tracks such as "Memories" featuring John Legend and the follow-up dancehall single "Blessed," it's clear that this latest body of work is a rare gem that speaks truth to vision and celebrates our polylithic African heritage in its rich fullness and complexities.

Having had an exclusive listen to some other tracks on the album back in April, our candid one-on-one conversation with Buju Banton journeys through his inspiration, collaboration and direction for Upside Down 2020, African cultural linkages and the next generational wave of dancehall and reggae.

This interview has been shortened and edited for clarity.
