J Molley Enlists Costa Titch and Yanga Chief in New Single 'Ang'na Stress' From Upcoming Mixtape

Listen to J Molley's new single 'Ang'na Stress' featuring Costa Titch and Yanga Chief.

In his new single, J Molley expands his scope as he collaborates with artists one wouldn't have predicted. Yanga Chief and Costa Titch spread their sauce on "Ang'na Stress", rapping and singing mostly in South African indigenous languages IsiZulu and IsiXhosa alongside J Molley's English raps.

"Ang'na Stress" is catchy and has mass appeal, it should get decent spins on radio. The song will appear on J Molley's upcoming mixtape All Is Fair In Love & War. The project is the hip-hop artist's first mixtape, and will be a follow-up to his EPs, Dreams Money Can Buy (2017) and Leader of the Wave, a Playlist by J Molley (2018).


Both projects came with two features each. But, All Is Fair In Love & War will feature a range of artists Nadia Nakai, Ricky Rick, Frank Casino and Focalistic. Production on the mixtape is mostly handled by J Molley and Stickx, who the artist has worked with in the past.

"Ang'na Stress" sees J Molley rapping more than he sings, which hasn't been the case with most of his music excluding a few exceptions. J Molley hasn't been shy to share his raps in the recent months. He raps on songs like "Going Down", "I'm Good" and "Pallbearer".
