[embed width="560"][/embed]


Pioneer Unit Records, the independent hip-hop imprint out of Cape Town, comes out with the first video off MC Rattex's solid Streets, Raps & Us EP (which at 11-tracks deep seems more like a full-length, jus' sayin'). In "Ewe Nje," which roughly translates to "for real" in isiXhosa, Rattex takes on the music industry and "candy floss rappers." Beats by Hipe, visuals by spo0ky. (via AIAC)
