Trap has taken over the country and this is not a secret. We have had plenty of bangers over the past couple of months and most of them have been featured on this platform. We have not had a lady come through and claim her place in the spotlight. Today, we feature talented female rapper, King Blake.
King Blake, whose real name is Lemogang Nonceba Mazwane, was born on 29 September 1992 in Krugersdorp. She is an independent recording vocalist and rapper. Because many females in the industry call themselves “queen” – and since she aimed to be eccentric, considering how male dominated the field she took on is – she hailed herself “King”.
King Blake kicked off the year by announcing that she has joined the new sprung management – Future Genesis. It has been less than a week since the announcement was made and the release of her EP, titled Situation EP, is upon us.
King Blake’s vocal abilities are special and the style she introduces to us on this is fresh, especially on Situation and Insomnia as well as the afro flavoured, Wanga. She shows her lyrical finesse on 2Bricks where she features Cesar Ramos. On this joint, she raps about her hustle on the come up and how she is not taking any prisoners. She carries the dope flows on Rizla where she flexes on how she’s the illest.
The Situation EP is a tapestry of haunting vocals, hard raps and expertly made beats that take you to a completely different place. She is also able to show off the different sides to her as not only a vocalist but also a rapper and storyteller. The collaboration between her and Cesar Ramos, aka CrakNoBeat, who made beats for the entire project, is magical. Plus, she compliments the kats she also features on this.
Take a listen to the EP below!
