After pulling a ZESA on us, we now get an opportunity to "tell our friends". Welcome to certified Burg Boi Charlie Zimbo's new project Tell Your Friends
The cover seems to be saying something about the type of friends we keep (unless I'm wrong and that ain't Jesus and Judas Iscariot on there)...
Two other 2016 Zim Hip-Hop nominees make their appearance here and one of them is fellow Burg Boi Asaph and Cal_Vin. Others making an appearance are Yung Tyran, Sky City Uno, Vic Jita and J Dumza. This is basically a Bulawayo affair (it would have been dope if rappers from other parts were involved but I guess it has to do with the theme).
This project's inception was a result was a result of Zimbo's conversation with his mother, and in case you miss it the closing track is a clip of a conversation with his mother.
I'm still sitting on the fence about how I feel about the project, I hope it will grow on me after a couple of listens. The lack of cohesion between the artists on the intro didn't inspire confidence. It ends up coming off as just verses strung together. The interludes sound somewhat incomplete. The other tracks where the artists are left to their own devices sound a lot better. The beat selection is exceptional but the songs do feel like they could have been better.
Will you tell your friends about it?
