Listen to N’Veigh’s New EP ‘No Pineapples On My Pizza’

'No Pineapples On My Pizza' is outstanding.

One of South Africa's finest on the mic, Pretoria-based MC N'Veigh dropped a new EP today.

No Pineapples On My Pizza doesn't overstay its welcome; it only lasts for 20 minutes. And the MC and his collaborators never lose your attention.


N'Veigh is slowly coming out the "rapper's rapper" box. All songs on the 6-track project excel lyrically, but will entertain more than just the fan of bars. The MC chose musical beats and soulful vocal hooks to make the project listener-friendly.

No Pineapples On My Pizza is not about pineapples on pizza, though—the rapper flexes his lyrical skills on the battle-ready "Nomsa Nene Freestyle," raps about the game alongside Solo and Captain on "Villains," flirts with kwaito on "Souffle," shows off his mack game on "Falling" and self-introspects on "Way Too Gone."

On the latter, the MC vents about a range of issues from fatherhood to relationships that have gone sour. He raps about fellow Pretoria producer and DJ, Beat Oven.

He raps:

"So don't ask me about Beat Oven/ The brotherhood I had with that homie has been broken/ I'm sure he knows the reason why/ We haven't spoken, but the word is he got beef with I/ We can't be open about the matter/ It's better we forget and we move on/ Or lay that bitch to rest like a futon"

Production on No Pineapples On My Pizza is handled by Mayj-C, Bona V, Caesar Siseko and the legendary Beatmochini.

If you love your hip-hop with heartfelt lyrics that are delivered with flair and passion, No Pineapples On My Pizza will sure treat you well.

Stonebwoy & Beenie Man's 'Shuga' Is a Full Dose of Energy

Ghana meets Jamaica in this impressive new collaboration.

Stonebwoy, one of Ghana's major dancehall names, links up with Jamaican legend Beenie Man for this new single, "Shuga."

"Shuga" is built on stuttering synth hits and beat work produced by Ghana's StreetBeatz. Stonebwoy and the "King of Dancehall" connect over the energetic rhythm, each delivering their own verses—add one more track to the many stellar cross-Atlantic musical collaborations that have been going on for years, in particular between West Africa and Jamaica.

"This collab is legendary," Stonebwoy wrote on his social media pages.

The single comes paired with a new music video directed by BlingBlang which follows the Ghanaian star and Beenie Man to a railroad station as they turn a train car into a dancehall party. Beenie Man even plays the conductor for a few shots.
