Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll be well aware of the fact that SA hip hop is in an extremely strong and positive place. Not only are some of our biggest artists making it around the continent, but a new breed of fresh talent is giving us reason to be excited for the future.
I spend a lot of time listening to new music but very few artists have had me in my feels as much as young rapper, Skabzemortal. The young dude is just 16 years old but his track, “LORD$” has the kind of flow and delivery you expect to hear from rappers at least twice his age.
His new single is filled with some heavy punchlines which ride over a strong beat. South African producers are seriously doing their part to make sure that the sounds coming out of this country are top notch.
Have a listen to “LORD$” below and let us know if you think Skabzemortal has what it takes to become one of the next big things in SA. The song is officially releasing on the 21st of April, but because we do what we do, we got you an exclusive preview. Check it out below:
