For the first time ever, the whole Cashtime Life catalog is now available on streaming platforms.
If you are a South African music fan, especially hip-hop, then you may have at some point complained about not being able to stream K.O.'s classic solo debut album Skhanda Republic, Kid X's 3 Quarter Pace and Ma-E's Township Counsellor. Ask around, these are three of the most solid SA hip-hop albums of all time.
"And listening to that album now, I can actually hear that guy was in a dark place," says K.O.
Going into his second solo album, 2017's SR2, veteran South African rapper K.O. was plagued by his label Cashtime Life falling apart. His artists left, and fans blamed him for prioritizing his music over that of the artists signed under the label at the time.
Recently, Mr Cashtime opened up about all that driving him to a state of depression. He shared it in a video clip he posted on Instagram towards the end of last week.
