Listen to Rashid Kay’s New Album ‘The K-Word’ with Features from Kid Tini, Blaklez, Maraza, Megmafia and More

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"
