Year 20 Elevate: Projects to Expect

First and foremost, we must apologize for this very long absence on our side, but we had to pay some bills, rub some shoulders and make some new friends so we could grow this blog for your our avid followers. Year 20 Elevate...

Hebza Mabza's Hunger Makes Hard Work mixtape will be dropping in August or October. Horny featuring Rhymer T (produced by King Bufu) has been released as a promo single for the project which will also boast some production from King Bufu, RomeoBeats. Unfortunately we cannot add the song onto the Basement playlist because of the heavy sexual content in the lyrics. Please click on the name of the single to download it and hear why.
Pedro Kan-ill  is working on the 013 Street Tape scheduled for release between August and October, Cash Music (produced by Pedro Kan-ill) featuring his wing man, Shaun G’eezy is the first single (the official mix is yet to be released) lifted off the project . This is how Shaun G’eezy explained the track, “Cash Music is like a struggle song for us and fellow artists, the only difference is that our party is S.A.B and not the A.N.C lol! Too Many promoters take us for a rides and that sucks, completely. Other than that, it’s just me and Pedro doing what we do best, bringing good heat to the streets ”. Click on the full song name to download it. Another single called The Breakthrough has been availed for download... click on the song name to get it now...

J.O.B has wrapped up his sophomore album, Mii Cra2ier Dream. He made some additions to his team this time around, the project boasts production from Tebogo Boshomane, Big Man from Tshwane the capital and the legendary Budda Roc (worked with Pedro Kan-ill, Shaun G’eezy; Tarps Mash; Ehm’sHe; Given the King and D-Charms). A prelude EP to the album is around the way. We will have it for you soon enough, keep watch for it on the blog. For those of you who missed his first album, now you can play and download I’m Not A Gangsta (produced by Ehm’sHe TheMelo). Just click on J.O.B's Cover art to download the song.

Finally Ehm’sHe is at work on his debut album simply titled, Music, a release date has not been set as yet since he is still in the beat collection phase, and there is no word of a single as yet, we are now very tired of A Promise... aren’t you? We do however have a link to his 2006 live performance for Journey To The Top / Listen (Medley) feat. Matete Moloto, one of the songs that will be included in the album. If it’s anything to go by, it seems like Ehm’sHe, just like his fellow peers, is also travelling in the direction of the light, which is a good thing right? Watch the video and tell us what you think. There is also word of the Beat Engineurs coming back into the scene. For those of you who don’t know this is the producer society Ehm’sHe, Romeobeats and Kornway founded in 2007.   

Dikwa Jazz Band, the Mpumalanga based Afro Jazz duo released Vuk’utentele in 2009 (sorry we were only given the rights to add them this year). Oral Alexander is the piano maestro and Ntando Lekhuleni on the acoustic guitar and the overall production of the band. They are officially the first Jazz act to grace this blog with their musical genius. We will also have their video for Mbale Mbale under the videos tab and Vuk’utentele (the song is now available for download, click on their photo to download it or just hit play below).
