div align="center">South African Hip Hop lyrics archive… one rhyme at a time...

Cover Story: Okay I don't know where to start. I don’t really remember or know Entity the group but I know the dude now. Altar Ego is here so let’s talk that. I was a bit disappointed when I saw the track listing coz  I already had (or heard)  8 out of the 12 tracks (but then again it’s my job to search for tracks, so I guess I had the upper hand). That aside if I was important enough to give it a rating, the album would get 5 mics from me. IV League killed the production, from the 1st track Reign, featuring Buffalo Soldier, you already know you gon’ learn something coz dude “drops knowledge like he knocking books off the shelf”. Then there’s Victory Lap, need I say more? Khuli Chana & Pro comes in on I Want It All. Then it’s the sing along All I Know, got us 9 to 5’ers not longer ashamed in the club. Then dudes get serious on Bang, Khuli representing to the fullest. By the time you get to track 12 IV League pulls what they only can pull, they sample Jigga… oh shit! “Yeah he used dude’s voice props to that boy Shawn/He made it a hot line AKA made it a hot song” . When I’m Gone is something for the ladies… Altar Ego a marathon that dude ran at his own pace. Ofcoz he got the legends for the Victory Lap Remix to conclude what we might call years from a now a classic album.

Cashtime… we dali wam’! Now or Never coming (or its here depending on when you reading this). Number 1 got the ladies singing along, Ntukza had a killer line “I like it when we make jokes and we both laugh/it’s kinda like we don't smoke we got no match” Now Goodbye is on rotation and we sorta know who  are the actual members of the group, we were really confused at one point. And if you follow dudes on twitter then you might have downloaded “Shut It Down (Stundee)” my favorite track does far.

Morale brought in Teepee on Call My Number. Tido went International with Banky W on It Aint My Fault . The current single is Smash (this is the first track I typed when I got All Or Nothing, the double rhymes are off the hinges). He also managed to get Tumi on Success, and he got PDotO and Sean Pages on Grind Hard.

I know you felt PDotO on that track  and if you wondering where to hear more from him, check him on “Run All Star Remix”. Or his best (well at least C-Live would agree) on I Tried. Dude is tight, I think he currently No. 1 unsigned hype on the magazine. Made Men with Clu, Maggz and Blaklez is hot that Showtime included in his mixtape Stop Complaing, Start Entertaining. But a surprise is that dude didn’t include Salute in the mixtape… a classic track if you ask me. Dude also wanted his girl back so bad he even recruited the O’Jays on I want you Back. The All Stars come back again on Limping Remix…. Auwwwwww.

Red Button also finally came through and represented MFE. Shikisha had us wondering if the Pro protégé would hold it down on his own. He dropped iBakwa La, and all that he sounds like blah blah blah shit went out the window and we just enjoyed the punchlines “Nje nge-Chrysler it’s a PT ngiya-Cruiser” killing me.

HHP remade Music & Lights just to Pass Time, Casper nailed it and ofcoz some international flavor with Omar. MotswAfrika will probably be out when you read this… sgetit (I had to use the word couldn’t resist)

Path.

Men lie, women lie, 
numbers don't

When I first collected these stats, I was gon’ write an article about strength in numbers, how far we could go if we used that to our advantage.  Here’s our top ten, you know if these dudes followed each other (I’m not sure if they do ) one tweet from any of them would actually reach over a hundred thousand people. Now that’s power in numbers , the type of power that could be used to take the game forward. Imagine the possibilities, imagine the publicity and the marketing that can be achieved by such power. I’ve heard the phrase  “united we stand divided we fall” but can’t think of any better place to use it than here.  So I put the twitter names of all these rappers on their pages, if you feel the brother follow him. And use twitter to find out more about them, this may reduce the number of e-mails I get asking where can I download the track? Where can I find the mixtape? Etc.

Rappers also play your part and follow a uniting force like @Mzansilyrics it also reduces the effort of retweeting everything that mentions you.

It’s pretty scary how these figures actually give an indication of who’s who in the industry right now, coz I looked at the list and I looked at line-up of Hip Hop Showdown taking place on the 30th Oct at Centurion and guess what?

 

* stats as they stood on the 23rd October 2011*
