TSA, ByLwansta and Spoek Mathambo’s New Song Is Fire

An unexpected collaboration that is nothing but fire flame emojis.

Spoek Mathambo gets to trade bars with two young rappers, TSA and ByLwansta, on the song "Ten Fold" by TSA.

Over a full customary off-key bassline, as heard on your favorite trap bangers, the three rappers spaz and let you know where their heads are at, with matching skills and bravado.

TSA raps, "I just wanna inspire the youth/ make'em worship the truth," while ByLwansta reminds us that he's okay with being an independent artist. He raps, "Let me tell you something that you already know/ or let me tell you something that I've told you a couple times/ In case you forgot that I'm not fucking unsigned, bitch, I'm independent, get it right."

Spoek Mathambo, in his coherent verse, talks about the fake lives lead by some of the people we look up to.

"Ten Fold" is solid. It's an unexpected collaboration from artists of different styles and backgrounds. And we are so here for it.
