I’ve written this many times before and I will write it again. South African hip hop is in a great place, but it would be nowhere without the production talents that exist in our beautiful nation. Rappers couldn’t be great without good producers, just like actors couldn’t look good without decent directors.
One such producer who is making waves in South Africa is local wonderman, KagMayn who has been featured on several tracks and digital platforms. His latest creation is a track titled “ScuffTeen” and you can already hear that it’s got the kind of catchy vibe that could have young kids singing along on the school playground.
Although the chorus is catchy, I was particularly interested in the verses which, it must be said, are reasonable. The double timing in verse-2, in particular, was impressive especially as T.O.P managed to blend English and isiZulu with effortless confidence.
Do yourself a favour and grab yourself a pair of decent headphones and listen to KagMayn’s latest masterpiece. Will you be singing along to “ScuffTeen”?
