South African rapper Tony Dangler crashed onto our radar last week with a spooky boom bap introduction on "No Manners." Pietermaritzburg raised, Dangler (aka Fudge Da Fugitive) has been in the mix of Gauteng hip-hop circles for a minute now as a member of Joburg's Revivolution Clique. On his latest effort he's joined forces with Cape Town beatmaker DESERT_HEΔD aka Christian Tiger School's Luc Vermeer on a heavy-hitting bout of no-nonsense Nightmare On Elm Street hip-hop. Dangler broke the track down for The Fader (where it premiered):
"In a nutshell, it’s what I go through in a day in my life. It kind of relays a story about me — this guy with a kind of poorer background [who] is now living in Johannesburg. I tried to touch on my financial situation and how I’d like to improve on that. I talk about how maybe I have been slept-on and it’s time you give me a chance and let me come up like other kids. I talk about world issues, I talk about political issues that affect our country, and I talk a bit about how dope I am."
