Watch YoungstaCPT & Maloon TheBoom’s Latest Music Video for ‘SY?NZ’

Yungloon Taliboom have a new music video from their latest joint mixtape.

In their latest music video for the song "SY?NZ," the duo Yungloon Taliboom (rapper YoungstaCPT and producer Maloon TheBoom) give you a field trip into the Cape Flats. The video plays like out like a documentary of some sort about the gangs of the Cape Flats.


The video starts with a voice-over from a man who gives you a survival guide on how to ensure you don't find yourself in trouble with gangs.

Cars spin and guns are drawn as the MC recites his verses in the video. The term "gang signs out the window," which he chants in the hook, is yet another subtle insinuation of the similarities between the gangs of the West Coast and those from the Western Cape province, which YoungstaCPT is always repping.

"SY?NZ" is from the duo's latest mixtape titled To Be Continued released in May.

Linked to the 400th year commemoration of the first recorded landing of slaves in the United States, it became a launchpad for the Ghanaian government to convince Black people around the world to permanently settle in the West African country.

Aisha Asamany, a corporate management consultant for high-profile UK financial institutions turned self-taught luxury jewelry designer was one of many who heeded the call, trading in the corporate life for a spiritual and an entrepreneurial journey – one of joy, appreciation, and representation in her fatherland.
