Dladla Mshunqisi has featured on some of the biggest and hottest songs for the past two years and a couple of days ago, he announced that he will be dropping his debut album. Titled uMshunqu, the album is set to drop on the 19th of October which he has already put up on pre-order on Apple Music. He has already dropped 2 tracks along with the pre-order.
We first got wind of Dladla Mshunqisi when he featured on Benny Maverick’s Memeza back in 2017 and since then, he has made sure that which ever song he is featured on, he kills.
He has worked with Tipcee, Distruction Boyz on Omunye and DJ Tira on Pakisha to name a few. If all of these contributions are to go by, then his debut album, uMshunqu, is going to be straight fire.
uMshunqu is a 13 track project which is a healthy number of tracks for a debut album. The project features plenty of talented artists, both known and unknown.
Busiswa, Prince Kaybee, Nokwazi and Tipcee are some of the more familiar names we see on the track list. Cruel Boyz, Target and Ndile as well as DJ Mphyd are some of the names that we are not familiar with.
Although Dladla does not have a joint where he is on his own, which makes us a little concerned, as we need to be sure of what kind of a solo artist he is. We have no doubt that every single joint on this album is designed for the dance floor! We can’t wait for it to drop.
Pre-order the album here.

NEW MUSIC: Vitu Takes Us Into His Thoughts In Narcolepsy Part ii
Cape Town based Hip Hop artist, Vitu, drops new song titled Narcolepsy Part ii
It’s been a minute since we featured new music from the gents from Arcade Music. One third of the funky Hip Hop collective, Vitu, recently dropped new music. Titled Narcolepsy Part ii, the new single gives us a little glimpse into Vitu’s state of mind.
He states that he thinks this is right time to share this song. With the end of the year approaching, self reflection is key before we begin a new chapter.
“I thought it was the right time of year to put it out as its quite a introspective look into my thoughts on how the year has been ‘til this point and there’s no better time to reflect on it as opposed to now.”
Vitu is not a stranger to this platform as we have featured him a couple of times. And all of the projects that he has released to date have done more than impress us. Among the songs we loved from him were This Time Next Week, Tape Deck Side A and Papers.
All of these songs were not only well written and highly descriptive but they are have a factor that only Vitu provides in his music. And that is he is able to create a safe space in his music, so intimate and a little consuming.
This is the type of music that’s suitable for long drives to nowhere for no particular reason at all except to just be away. Narcolepsy Part II carries this exact same vibe.
He raps about wanting to find a balance in his life. The duality of dreaming of a life that is ideal but also battling his demons and navigating his way out of his misery. But his hunger and drive for this life he dreams about is what keeps him pushing and this is the sense of hope we get from the song. One day it will all make sense.
