Listen to The Big Hash’s New Single ‘Amnesia’

The Big Hash releases his first single of 2020.

As promised, rising South African lyricist The Big Hash has released a new singe. "Amnesia" is somber in both form and content. It kicks off with a muffled sample that lives under moody pads and prominent bassline on the beat that was produced by Elizee. It's the perfect atmosphere for the artist to pen a heartfelt song to a woman who's breaking up with him.


He sings in the first verse:

"You better not fuck with me/ 'cause all I have left is loving you unconditionally/ If you don't feel the same I'll take it personally/ FaceTime to facing the music/ Don't waste time and make shit confusing/ What's on your mind I'm tired of excuses?"

"Amnesia" has no raps, every verse is sung. But The Big Hash approaches his writing like the rapper he is—hitting internal and end rhymes like a pro.

"Amnesia" is the first song from The Big Hash, who last released new music in 2019 with the mixtape Young, which helped cement his name as one of the best rappers out at the moment in South Africa.
