News Brief

Watch the Music Video for ‘Top 5’ by Ras, N’Veight, PdotO and Jay Claude

Ras shares the visuals for his latest single.

Three of Pretoria's top emcees, Ras, N'veigh and PdotO trade bars over a beat by Mananz on Ras' latest single ".Top 5" In the song, the three rappers make a case for being on your top five.


N'veigh raps: "I keep telling you that I'm top two/ You need more than your rapper niggas to stop dude/ I'm hot do, shit, I was raised by the gun/ Disrespect me, I promise then you gon' see what my palms do," before throwing a shot at the new era of rappers who rock fanny packs:

"And you niggas are so static/ Got fanny-packs and your nigga got cosmetics/ Mamelodi East, I got niggas that cause damage/ Never felt defeat like a nigga with prosthetics"

Ras delivers his verse in French, which means most of us listening from South Africa can only marvel at his delivery.

PdotO's verse is sprinkled with sentimentality as usual, rapping:

"Smoke purps while we call green pastures/ A lot of rappers laugh that they speed past us/ Forgetting it's a marathon, not a sprint"

The hook on "Top 5" is handled by Jay Claude, who is fast becoming the go-to guy for hooks in South Africa hip-hop, after working with the likes of Stilo Magolide, Stogie T, BigStar, DJ Sliqe, DJ Speedsta among others.
