First To Know
“As an introvert and a man of few words rap has been a window to my soul and the deepest parts of my mind,” Loatinover Pounds tells Apple Music. “It’s an honour that my words and way of expression landed me on the cover of Rap Life because in one way or another, these words have become a reflection of my life. Faka Punyete!”
On “Ekhoneni ft Emtee, Thato Saul & Saudi” DJ Sliqe packs a knockout groove-rooted punch with a variety of horns, strings & 808s guided by melodic cadences that boldly announces his return.
Rap Life Africa serves as a companion to Apple Music’s flagship hip-hop playlist, Rap Life.
