Boyzn Bucks crew members Riky Rick and Bhubesii share 'Family Values The Instrumentals' and "Kobayashi," respectively.
Two members of South African creative collective Boyzn Bucks are back with new projects. Last week, Durban-born artist Riky Rick shared Family Values The Instrumentals, a fully instrumental version of his debut solo album which dropped this past April.
Riky Rick’s 18-track record is inspired by the work of J Dilla, Madlib and Pete Rock. The rapper and producer expressed his appreciation for the legendary beatmakers in a recent press release, “being able to rap over their productions gave me confidence and motivation to dive into the world of production. This drop is dedicated to that stage of my life. When I was hustling to find dope beats on the internet so I could express myself” mentions the musician.
Fellow Boyzn Bucks member, Bhubesii, also dropped new music recently. The Soweto-based artist released his pulsating rap single “Kobayashi,” named after the artist and fashion designer’s alter-ego. The song, Bhubesii’s first in three years, sees him delivering what he describes as “hybrid fashion street rhymes" over a merciless beat.
