J Molley and Ka$hCpt Release Triumphant Collaborative Single ‘Narco’

Watch the music video for J Molley and Ka$hCpt's new single 'Narco.'

J Molley and Ka$hCpt unleashed a collaboration which has since gone viral. The two South African hip-hop artists go back and forth about living the life you and I only see in series and movies, with a chorus that goes:

"Run his pockets take his weed like a narco/ I am god gifted and I am in god mode/ Lighting rockets smoke alone I don't pass hoe/ Only come out in the night like it's dark mode"

J Molley has been consistently showcasing his ability to write and perform potent melodies and melodic raps for the last few years.

Ka$hCpt is one of the country's most promising rappers at the moment. His style is that of a modern hip-hop artist, with autotuned raps and melodies. A style that one wouldn't have foreseen would ever move Cape Town hip-hop fans. But times have changed, and the city's is changing along with them.

"Narco" came with the announcement that Ka$hCpt was joining Never Broke, a multi-discipline media company which is home to J Molley.

Interview

Adekunle Gold Is Living His Best Life

We speak to the Nigerian star about how marriage and fatherhood have led him to find both newfound happiness and newfound freedom as an artist.

''I'm having the time of my life,'' says Adekunle Gold over a Zoom call while seated in his office in Lagos. ''I'm making songs that are so true to my current energy, my current vibe.'' When I got on the call with the 34-year-old artist on a Wednesday afternoon, the first thing I noticed was his hair tied up in little braids, the second was his wide smile. As we speak, the crooner laughs multiple times but it's his aura that shines through the computer screen, it lets you know better than his words that he's truly having the time of life.

Born Adekunle Kosoko, the popular Nigerian singer got married barely two years ago to fellow artist Simi. Last year, the power couple welcomed their first child. As we talk, Gold points to his journey as a father and a husband as some of the biggest inspirations at the moment not just as far as music goes but as his perspective in life and how he now approaches things.

''My [artistry] has changed a lot because being a father and being a husband has made me grow a lot and more.'' Adekunle Gold tells OkayAfrica. ''It has made me understand life a lot more too. I'm feeling more responsible for people. You know, now I have a kid to raise and I have a wife to support, to be a real man and husband and father for.'' He credits this journey with both his newfound happiness and a newfound freedom as an artist.
