Watch YoungstaCPT’s Music Video For ‘The Cape of Good Hope’
Watch YoungstaCPT's latest visuals from his debut solo album '3T.'
In his latest music video, YoungstaCPT showcases different parts of Cape Town. While most of his videos are shot solely in the hood, "Cape of Good Hope," shows a few of the city's touristy places such as Clifton Beach, alongside middle- and working-class areas like Wynberg.
"'The Cape of Good Hope' has a similar feel to 'Wes-Kaap' in terms of the landscape, but also it should feel like a promotional video for Cape Town tourism. You should feel welcomed but also informed as to where I'm from in Cape Town but also intrigued to visit different parts of the city," says YoungstaCPT.
"Cape of Good Hope" is one of the strongest cuts on YoungstaCPT's latest release, his debut solo album 3T. And 3T has plenty of heaters.
"Cape of Good Hope," which is produced by Egypt, is catchy, with a chant hook that is sure to stick to your head. In the song, the rapper explores the state of affairs in Cape Town—tracing the city's history from colonialism to the people of Cape Town trying to rebuild themselves, having been destroyed by colonialism and apartheid.

He raps about young people pushing drugs, makes reference to some Coloured historical figures like anti-apartheid activist Ashley Kriel, comedian Marc Lottering and musician Taliep Petersen. He cleverly weaves some of the city's hoods in his raps:
"Welcome to the Cape of Good Hope, call it Skolliewood/ Riyadh Roberts robbing from the rich, call him Robin Hood/ Colonialism shook us, we got off to a rocky start/ Now we building empires, and calling it Grassy Park/ I've never seen democracy, Skaap Kraal to Ottery"
