Fifi Cooper Debuts Take Me Back Album; And It’s Honest

Published

on

Fifi Cooper new album 2018

Fifi Cooper on Friday liberated her first studio album since her highly publicised and explosive departure from Ambitiouz Entertainment.

Fifi Cooper Take Me Back

Aptly entitled Take Me Back, the 21 track Motswako project finds Fifi spitting cold trill about trust and betrayal, wicked schemes from people she once trusted, and the confidence gained from her victorious – albeit rough – journey back to the charts. Cooper also pitches her tent as a Motswakolista ready to be welcomed back into the scene.

She had been with the controversial label since its inception when she decided to jump ship, setting in a motion a devastating legal battle between the parties that once threatened to exhaust her very ability to access her discography.

It’s one that she lost initially; famously losing the rights to perform the music she recorded with the label, which basically consisted of her entire catalogue. A political party, the EFF, would later come to her rescue.

RELATED: OUR 2016 INTERVIEW WITH FIFI COOPER 

The last time I met Fifi Cooper her was in a control of a studio where she was to be doing a television interview about the case she had just lost against her former record label, Ambitiouz Entertainment.

I expected her to look deflated and sombre.

Yet the girl who walked in for makeup was triumphant and bubbly. She greeted everyone cheerfully and continued taking pictures.

This was mid-2016, and it seemed the rapper’s world had come crashing down. Not only was she no longer allowed to perform any of her commercial work, she was also reportedly ordered to pay all the legal fees.

Two years later we’ve got Take Me Back. In it, Fifi Cooper blends some bonafide vocals with smooth Motswako raps that she transitions back and forth between English and Setswana without losing control of her flows. The album tackles various themes; with romance and related drama adding to some of the reflections on her career.

Emtee Back with ‘Johustleburg’ Amid Feud with Former Label

Amid much drama between him and his former record label Ambitiouz Entertainment, Emtee has finally debuted his hotly anticipated new single, Johustleburg.

The song, which doubles as an ode to the concrete jungle that is the city of Joburg, came after the rapper’s fans campaigned for its release and heavy promo as a means to come against what they’ve perceived to be schemes by the label to blackball Emtee.

This came as the two parties continued reading each other for filth on Twitter.

In the new offering, which has already shot to the top of iTunes SA singles chart thanks to the backing of his dedicated legions of fans, the Manando hitmaker tackles more than just the complexities in navigating the “big city lights” that “have shown me life”.

A deeper drill reveals that the song really is about growth. Through all the challenges, Emtee’s ascension has been a triumph through the hard knocks of life.

RELATED: EMTEE IS OFFICIALLY DONE WITH AMBITIOUZ ENTERTAINMENT 

The single also marks Emtee’s manifesto for freedom from the complicated hooks of his relationship with Ambitiouz. Since he famously departed from the label last year in August, both parties have remained at the daggers.

Much shade has been thrown, and damning claims have been tossed all over the scenes. When he left, Emtee slammed the label for the lack of promotion of his music, and the lack of label support in satiating the appetites of his fans with new music.

Kwesta Nods To Classic Kwaito With Two New Singles

The K1 King returns.

Published

on

 

Kwesta

It appears Kwaito is back on the rise. Between the latest drops by Kwesta and the Major League DJ’s, it’s the old school kind of Kwaito that is making its way back into the streets.

Kwesta recently premiered not one, but two new singles to mark his triumphant return to the charts. The rapper, whose last album came, Da KAR II, was released in 2016, is getting ready to premiere his highly anticipated 2 Skeif album.

And to start fans out on his new sonic chapter, the rapper has unleashed Njandini.

Although the sound of the single is melts naturally with the sound in his sprawling catalogue of Hip Hop and subtle Kwaito blends, Kwesta is finally resting on his Kwaito leanings more.

The focus is less on delivering hard chop bars and more on issuing a lush flow for the pantsula co-sign.

He’s still a rapper though. And on The Finesse, a collaborative joint with a guest verse by Riky Rick, he plays honours his rapper hat.

Although the K1 King’s last full body of work came out four years ago, he’s been keeping his fans in good delights with hit singles that have only elevated his dominance in the culture. Such chart topping bangers as Spirit and Vur Vai existed as singles in between the albums.

The Ngud hitmaker also made statements with international collaborations with Wale and Rick Ross.

2 Skeif will have big shoes to fill.

DA Kar II became the first South African Hip Hop album to be certified ‘Diamond’, having shipped over 300 000 copies in the country. This also makes it the best selling South African album of all time. The album spawned a slew of hits, including Ngud, Mayibabo, and Ngyaz’fela.

Are you vibing with Kwesta’s new drops? Talk back in the comments section below!
