Listen to Saudi’s new mixtape ‘The Drip’s Leak’

Saudi releases a new mixtape and promises more projects to come.

South African rapper and singer Saudi just released a new mixtape. The 13-track project is titled The Drip's Leak and features some of Saudi's affiliates such as Ranks ATM, Sims and Emtee, most of who are part of the African Trap Movement (ATM), a collective Saudi co-founded alongside Sjava and Emtee.


Saudi has positioned himself as a dexterous trapper who sings as well as he raps. His debut album, D.R.U.G.S Inc showcased his writing, rapping and singing skills.

In his latest project The Drip's Leak, however, Saudi raps more than he sings. For instance, in the opening song, he raps until the song fades away. Most of the songs follow the same format. The Drip's Leak is a mixtape consisting of previously unreleased songs alongside new ones.

The Drip's Leak is the first mixtape Saudi has ever released, and according to him, it's the beginning of many to come. While breaking the news about the release, Saudi tweeted that the project is "the beginning of a mixtape rampage." He further shared that his long-promised project Sinaoane and his sophomore album Japan Four.

Prior to sharing The Drip's Leak, Saudi hadn't released new music since he made an appearance on the Black Panther soundtrack album on the song "X" alongside Schoolboy Q, 2 Chainz and of course Kendrick Lamar.
