The Vaal Brother Rappers Fratpack 'Home Pt. 2 (Oh One Six)'

South African brother rap duo Fratpack talk their video for 'Home Pt. 2 ( Oh One Six)' off their 'FAMLOVE volume 1:Fun Is Serious' mixtape.


Fratpack is a Gauteng rap outfit made up of brothers Kitso and Kabelo (Mr. Calibre) Moremi, who shot onto our radar last month with a featured spot on Revivolution rapper Tommy Ills' "Pacmanbass" video. "Influences range from 90s boom bap to noughties Neptunes/N*E*R*D to Tribe Called Quest to Zubz and Tumi," they told Okayafrica. Laidback rapper Kitso handles much of the duo's production, while the younger of the two emcees, Mr. Calibre, has a "more in-your-face, energetic type of delivery," they explained. "His rhymes are witty and punchline-heavy." Back in July the brothers came out with their latest mixtape, the 14-track FAMLOVE volume 1: Fun Is Serious, which featured verses from the likes of $tilo Magolide, Ofancy, and Tommy Ills plus production credits from BIG FKN GUN, Hopemasta, and Modiakgotla Shole. Most recently they've delivered the sharp visuals to the tape's hometown nod. Produced by Kitso, "Home Pt. 2 (Oh One Six)" is a hard-hitting celebration of the Vaal Triangle in South Gauteng. "It's just outside of the Free State," Fratpack say. "Vaal is former farm area which is now more Steel company area ( ISCOR ). Not much opportunity for a musician so we decided that wherever music is then that's our home." Download FAMLOVE volume 1:Fun Is Serious and watch the "Home Pt. 2 (Oh One Six)" video below.

Watch Wande Coal & Wale’s World Class Visuals For ‘Again’ (Remix)

Video Premiere: The two music giants certainly landed a 'W' with this one.

Nigerian afropop heavyweight Wande Coal has teamed up with famed American rapper Wale for a remix of his hit track "Again," off of his newly released EP, Realms.

While "Again" has been around for a minute, there's nothing like dope visuals to get the fire burning again. And fans are on board. The hit single amassed over 30 millions streams, with a steady run on many African charts this year, and is sure to keep building on top of the already impressive accomplishments.

As is typical and unfortunate in our new world of socially distancing, the two weren't able to join forces and wardrobes for an epic collaborative video. Instead, Director Adasa Cookey's brilliance manifested itself into a short film.
