Scheduled a day after Gimel Gunyana's Mpfanha WepaNorton, Bulawayo seems to be on a roll, concerning releases. This one dropped a lot lot later than expected *inset pause here* but anyway let's get right into it, shall we?
When I was about to listen to this EP I was chatting with the homie Guluva 7 and he said, " I listened to it ichiri kustudio. You are about to bless your ears. Trust me". These were big words and I'm not much of a hype fan but that was a pretty bold statement so I dived in.
Overview: The concept of the EP reads like the Zim version of a tale of two cities. The concept of the EP is about a Bulawayo native meeting a Harare native, where a short interaction/romance occurs as he tells her about his version of life. Preferring to call himself Nkosi instead of Tafadzwa since there are tons of Tafadzwas in H (I agree).
Standout Tracks: Kingsvilla, Queensvilla, BYO State of Mind, Queensvilla, Burg Sosh
Spekk Verdict: This gets the thumbs up from me. I know it may be too late back for some but this has to be one of the notable Zim Hip-Hop projects of 2015. The track order blends perfectly with the concept with the conversation interludes (which could’ve been better). Maybe the Cal_Vin influence played in it. Reaching almost a 1000 downloads within 24hrs of the link being publicized is quite a feat.
The way Queensvilla and Burg Sosh switch up though, on point. The minimal features are also commendable as it allows for the concept to stay closely adhered to, since it is his story.
Mr Dhliwayo must bre a bonus track, since the story seems to end after NTL (that’s Northend To Luveve if you’re slow). Alll in all this is a dope project which should be acknowledged as such.
Certified heat, I co-sign this!
