Shane Eagle Drops a New Song ‘BLACK’ From Upcoming Mixtape ‘Dark Moon Flower’

Shane Eagle releases a new song accompanied by a music video.

Shane Eagle announced a new mixtape earlier this week. Titled Dark Moon Flower, the project features the likes of Nasty C, Santi, Bas, Lute, Kota The Friend, PatricKxxLee, J-Tek, Resarn, Caleborate and TheMind.


Today, the young South Africa released the mixtape's opening song "BLACK." Shane Eagle talks his ish over a mean bassline and 808s. He tells you he prefers to pray at the crib instead of church.

In the video, as usual, Shane Eagle is on his own. The video is as ominous as the song—it's shot in black and white, and is made friendlier to the eye with slight visual effects.




Dark Moon Flower is Shane Eagle's third project, a follow-up to December 2018's Never Grow Up. The rapper's debut album Yellow was released in 2017.

Shane Eagle has had a massive year. Never Grow Up and the single "Let it Flow" were certified gold, and the rapper joined Bas on the Dreamville rapper's Milky Way Tour.

With a new project that has a line-up as fears as this one, his year is poised to get better.

Watch the music video for "BLACK" below and stream the song underneath.

Pre-order/pre-save Dark Moon Flower below. It arrives on the 16th of October.

Interview: Ranks ATM Makes ‘Substance Music’

South African hip-hop artist Ranks ATM on his latest EP 'Substance Music', working with Riky Rick and his crew African Trap Movement's new chapter.

Ranks ATM demands to be taken seriously. With every successive release, listeners are bound to pick up on both his personal and artistic growth. His latest EP, Substance Music, released towards the end of 2020, is an honest body of work that sees the artist divulge some aspects of his life while remaining playful and entertaining.

Young2unn, who produced a majority of the project, gave Ranks ATM beats that primarily consist of keys and strings cushioned by atmospheric pads and ethereal vocal samples panned for effect. The music is soulful enough for Ranks to tell his story and gritty enough to maintain his street aesthetic.

On Substance Music, the artist strikes the balance between playful banter and poignant expression of emotions. It's what makes his raps believable in general—he presents himself as a complete human who feels pain at times but also feels himself. Songs such as "Die For Me" and "How Could It Be" are laced with specific details that could have only been extracted from his life experiences, for instance, on the former, he raps, "You cheated on me with a gym freak, you did me dirty."
