It is that time again when we go visit the RAP music vault and bring forth value to your ears that you haven’t explored in a while. That’s what’s up is slang that simply means you are getting great approval for your material or any form of work that you are producing. Now it isn’t just parlance but a dope throwback tune that shook up the industry in the continent, the amazing Zeus from Botswana featured a legend Stogie T (Formerly known as Tumi) and AKA the leader of Megamites on a tune called DatsWasUp.
As of late you have been introduced to music from Botswana and it is no surprise that your response has been nothing but positive, now it would be a stark insult to the scene if you remain in oblivion when it comes to the O.G of their scene by the name of Konkrete We Nkalanga. He has a heart moving track with another star power, very seasoned rapper by the alias KEB on My Day Ones and the crooner Moetapele.
Being a champion is on a bucket list of any overzealous, passionate, life driven and most importantly self-actualization encrusted in the DNA person. No better emcee than Zubz the Last Letter who is also affectionately referred to as the Golden Mic holder could have been picked to anoint your psyche with his infinite gemstones. The Grey Series LP vol.1 presented by Drop XVI and The Studio Next Door track number 5 is titled Champion.

Let us time travel to back in 1999 when you were still young or better still in the form of liquid and were not even a thought to your parents. The scene was totally dominated by Kwaito and House music tunes receiving heavy rotation on prominent Radio stations and various music TV shows. Now this track by the forever loved and no longer with us Mizchif from Zimbabwe with All The Areas would break the shared airtime between the two genres on urban traditional media.
It’s only right we never neglect the immortal talent that gave us great moments in the culture; rest in poetry Sean Price the New York unorthodox emcee that was part of the dynamic duo Health Skeltah and a collective of super grimy crews from Brooklyn known as Boot Camp Clik. Prior to his untimely passing in 2015 which was a poignant period for heads across the globe, he laced a verse on a joint that produced prodigious bars titled So Gone by The Assembly.
