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.
