Where in the world has DJ Milkshake been? The dude brought us dope tracks such as My Own featuring Anatii and Cassper Nyovest and Bank Roll featuring Kid X and Da Les and seemingly disappeared.
He is back with a new joint, Savage, with the North God Da LES, feature killer, Maggz and Family Tree first lady, Nadia Nakai. The track was produced by international hit maker, Mae N. Maejor and comes ahead of the weekend so it’s about to go down.
Da Les is nice on this, although the hook is questionable. He does that singing/rapping thing that he did on his Lifestyle track. He raps about his lifestyle and if you don’t know what his lifestyle is all about, listen to all his songs and you’ll get it. He flexes hard on this.
Maggz on the other hand kills it on features, all the damn time. I just don’t get why he’s solo projects don’t get that much traction. He’s fresh on this, I won’t lie! He switches up his flow, gets a little personal, “Still hurting my ex, I’ma leave with her friend. I’m petty”. And then flexes hard: “We’re on the N1 again, 180 speed on the Benz, deep in the trends. We’re on the BS again. The savage is deep in my glands, it seeps on demand”. Inserts fire emoji’s.
Nadia Naka disappoints on this, for real. She switches it up but nje, it ain’t all that, it’s weak. I was really impressed when she dropped her EP and although it wasn’t dripping with bars, it was decent. On this she raps about how much she has been savage since she was a youngin.
The beat on this is nice. I just don’t think the hook is cool enough for the beat. It’s doesn’t have that thing man. Overall, the song is not all that for me but it’s a decent club song.
It will be released on all digital platforms if you’re into it. Look out for that.
Take a listen to it below and tell us if we are being savage or nah!
AKA Chats Platinum Plaques & Redefining What Accolades Mean To Him
We recently caught up with the Supa Mega, AKA who celebrated a huge milestone last week. The multi talented rapper and businessman hosted an intimate gathering to receive his several plaques for the outstanding work he did on his album, Touch My Blood.
Supa Mega has been on a winning streak
Supa Mega has been on a winning streak since 2016 with him releasing his joint project with Anatii which included several music videos. He had also been on his Supa Mega Tour and when that ended came the Touch My blood tour. This saw the rapper hard at work so it’s understandable that he is a little burnt out.
“I’m tired. Not physically tired, I’m just more emotionally tired, spiritually tired, mentally tired but it’s okay because we did what we came to do. I poured my heart and soul into the album and people really could feel that”, he expresses. And the results have paid off because the accolades and the recognition he has received since this album was released has been the most he has received since he began his career.
On how he is redefining what accolades mean to him
He shared some insights on how he has remained relevant for as long as he had. He touched on authenticity as one of the key things that artists have to uphold to stay winning.
“Just make what you need to make and put it out there. People recognize and appreciate authenticity. Just be authentic, be original and be sincere and heartfelt,” he says.
It’s been a while since AKA has submitted for any awards and he mentioned that he is considered it since he has the number one selling album in the country. But he questioned the motive to get involved in the awards when he has already won the hearts of many South Africans. The platinum plaque is proof of that.
“Isn’t the award to be the highest played artist? Isn’t the award to be the most booked artist? Isn’t the award to have people f*ck with your music?”.
These are very important questions and no doubt something that artists on the come up can question about the product they put out. Well done Supa Mega.
