Cape Town Hip-Hop Legend Jitsvinger Drops His First Project In 10 Years

Jitsvinger's latest EP is a mixture of boom-bap, jazz and Afrikaaps lyricism.

Cape Town musician Jitsvinger last released an album, Skeletsleutel, in 2007.


The artist has been busy with his activism work, theatre and performing around the country and some parts of the world. He has worked on collaborations with artists such as Jack Parow, Arsenic, Benjamin Jephta, YoungstaCPT among others.

Jits' latest 5-track EP, called Jitsologie, sees him sharp as ever, with high precision but effortless flows that suit his beat selection—be it boom-bap ("Breinsuiker," "Hoe Lyk Hulle," "Doenit" remix) or jazz-influenced production with no drums ("Smile" remix) or trap ("Skiroemba").

Apart from showing off his skill, the rapper tells stories of hope, pain, and if you are educated enough to understand Cape Flats lingo Afrikaaps, you will appreciate his witty wordplay and storytelling abilities.

Jitsologie features Claire Phillips, Roksha, YoungstaCPT and Monox.

Jitsvinger will be travelling to the Netherlands on the SA Roadtrip: Celebrating Life Tour. Keep an eye on his website, Facebook and Twitter for dates.

He'll be launching Jitsologie at the District 6 Homecoming Centre in Cape Town on the 28th of October. More info on the Facebook event page.
