Uno July is a pleasant breath of fresh air and this is because he is one of the most authentic rappers out there right now. The Cape Town based artist has recently dropped his single, Sodas In The Stu.
In case you are out of the loop, Uno July has been on a steady rise for the past four years; making music and performing alongside some of the country’s most celebrated artists. He has dropped various projects which were, for lack of a better word, weirdly creative with the most recent one being his EP with fellow Ill SKillz partner, Jimmy Flex.
Skills That Pay The Bills 24hour Project is a 7 track project which features veteran rapper, Proverb, IAMWAVES and Zaki Ibrahim, among others. Uno July’s body of work though, speaks for its self with his first EP; Best Kept Secret catapulted him to our attention almost 2 years ago.
He followed it up with the Uno ‘n Only EP and that was followed by the Zero Hour Zone LP and its reloaded version. These projects have, in a way, solidified Uno as a force to be reckoned with. Plus, nobody can ignore hard and consistent work right?
Sodas In The Stu is a laid back joint which sees Uno take no break from his socially conscious message which has become his signature style. He raps about wanting to get the money and respect but not getting to a point where he is willing to sell his soul. The beat is also something to be commended; it combines old school elements which we appreciate.
Peep the single below!
