Mzansi rappers, Ras, N’Veigh and PdotO come together to deliver new Hip Hop joint tagged “Top 5” featuring Jay Claude. This new project is by far a laudable piece of work showing how much SA Hip Hop soars from team work between different acts.
A lot of people have argued that SA Hip Hop isn’t really about solidarity between artistes but mostly about feuds and kings, and who sells the most records.
Yet, collaborative singles by different acts in the game continue to garner much love from fans which prove they want nothing more than to enjoy music by their fave artists as one.
Recently “Shebeleza” hitmaker, Casper Nyovest took a walk from the game saying the politics of it all had got to him (he’s back now though). That proves that while many solo artists would argue that the game is rigged, others would say that affiliations pay more.
The new song, “Top 5″ is beautiful because it only celebrates the game in the best way possible.
The track was announced by Ras who took to twitter some days back to reveal it would be dropping soon. He wrote,
“NEW RELEASE ALERT:???????????? #Top5 dropping next week. This is one for the books. Oh trust me. @ras_r2da x @JayClaude_ x @PdotO_SA x @Nveigh got that cooking right. I CAN’T WAIT FOR YOU TO HEAR THIS ONE ?????????????????????
Next week. ???”
Thankfully it has and it surely does not disappoint. The rapper and his collaborators deliver solid verses that keep the track interesting for the entire minutes of the song.
They bring back the joy of the genre on this one and prove how much solidarity is important for the game to thrive.
