Rashid Kay releases his second official album.
South African veteran MC, Rashid Kay, just released his second official album. Titled The K-Word, the album features artists from both the old and new school. Kid Tini, Blaklez, AB Crazy, Megmafia, Big Zulu, MarazA, Clara T, Siya Shezi, Chazz Le Hippie, and a whole lot more make appearances. The album is a follow-up to 2016's Once Upon A Rhyme.
With a title like The K-Word, the 11-track album has songs that address issues such as land reform, the state of hip-hop, among other topics.
On the song "G.O.D (Good Ol' Days)," which features AB Crazy on the hook, Rashid raps:
"Back in the day, boom bap was the thing, but it ain't coming back/ Niggas in denial, better acknowledge the fact/ One of the reasons for the bitter OGs/ Niggas with no cheese, hating on the young'ns"
"Bring Back Our Land" features a reggae hook from Black Dilinger, and two show-stealing rap verses from Blaklez and Big Zulu. Blaklez raps:
"Your tricks are the reason we let the land get away from us/ Can never break the faith in us, no matter what you label us/ What else are they gonna take from us?/ Pretending that they saving us/ It's sad that it had to take the hunger to awaken us"
