Watch YoungstaCPT's latest visuals.

Last week Friday, YoungstaCPT dropped "YVR (Young Van Riebeek)," the first single to his upcoming album 3T, coming in 2019.


The song, which makes reference to the colonization of South Africa and the country's current state of affairs, gets a fitting music video. Read about the song here. Directed by Imraan Christian, the video shows a reenactment of Jan Van Riebeeck's arrival, but with a little twist, which we won't spoil for you.

Watch the music video for "YVR" below, and/or download the song here.
