Moozlie Shows Her City Some Love On The Music Video for ‘Vatel’

Watch Moozlie and Kid X's Music Video for "Vatel."

"Vatel," the lead single to South African rapper Moozlie's recently released debut album Victory, packs some serious heat. The MC laces a vintage kwaito beat with her customary flair and larger-than-life personality. Lunatik, who produced the song, channeled legendary kwaito producer Mdu. Just like most of Mdu's productions, the beat is key-laden and the production is clean, with not much going on, but it still sounds full.

In the song's video, the MC gets chauffeured in a vintage Chevrolet De Ville to her hood, Benoni. She hits a high school, in which she's shown major love, before she throws a performance at a chisa nyama. For real, izinja ziyam'vatela. Some of the places she mentions in the song, are shown in the video, making sure that even if you aren't familiar with her hood, you get the song fully. Look out for cameos from the likes of Gemini Major, Spoken Priestess, Rouge and Ms Cosmo in the video.

This is one joint you'll hear everywhere this summer, it's just too addictive.
