Just before the release of his highly anticipated project, the Young Nino Brown EP, Laylizzy drops his first single, Tic Boom. This forms as a sneak peek into the full offering which is set to drop before the end of November.
Leading up to the release of his self-titled project which is set to drop before the end of November 2018, Laylizzy drops the first single from the Young Nino Brown EP titled Tic Boom.
The unrelenting flow of Laylizzy’s savage punchlines makes the real highlight of the record Tic Boom accompanied by the dope trappy beat produced by Ellputo.
On this track, Laylizzy expresses the pressures that almost made him explode like a ticking bomb before he became the Young Nino Brown. He raps about having girl stress and work stress and he doesn’t really need anymore.
Laylizzy reminds us of why he’s widely regarded as one of the most gifted rappers on the continent at the moment. His lyrical dexterity is second to none and his beat selection continues to match his unquestionable talent. If this is just a taste of what we can expect on the Young Nino Brown EP, then hip-hop heads are in for a genuine treat.
Tic Boom is available for purchase on all major digital stores.

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.
