Riky Rick is never going to run out of style is he? The hit maker is back with new music barely a month after dropping the super catchy Buy It Out. This time around he enlists the help of his closest friends and frequent collaborator, Cassper Nyovest, Major League and Professor on the introspective, Stay Shining.
If we are correct, this is the second joint that the rapper is releasing as a record label boss. And by the way, the period when Riky Rick left Mabala Noise to now is the most music that he has made and we are thankful that he is still at it.
Stay Shining is reflective and in a way, reminds us of the Riky Rick we met before he became King Kotini. Plus it is less about the flashy life and more about why he is doing this music thing. And besides, Riky Rick is merely showing off his versatility on this one by singing, rapping and switching between English and isiZulu with ease. Professor brings his legendary status on this one and just his voice on this certifies it a hit. Cassper Nyovest also does the things and serves us a major throwback to his first album when he was still hungry and riding off that Kwaito-Hip Hop wave.
This beat is 100% Kwaito inspired and we have Riky Rick himself and Alie Keyz to thank for this. The nostalgia and laid back feel to it makes it a far cry from the turn up joint, Buy It Out.
