He dropped Stay Shining in November of last year; an EP which he has been promising fans for a young minute now. Today, Riky Rick dropped the visuals for his newest joint; I Can’t Believe It (Macoins), his first single for 2018.
In I Can’t Believe It, Riky Rick is rapping about all the heights of success he has achieved since going independent, getting signed and then ultimately owning his own record label.
The song itself is energy packed and the hook has all the qualities and character of an anthem. It shows both frustrations, as represented in the visuals but also a passion to succeed, as represented in Riky Rick’s verses. All in all, there is a sense of urgency to this joint. Plus the Swiss Beats influenced beat is a banger of note.
I Can’t Believe It is shot and directed by Adriaan Louw, who has previously worked on AKA’s Dreamwork and Frank Casino’s Whole Thing. The imagery he created for this video is distinct in and of its own. The visuals look like it’s from early 1980s London or some era before this one and that alone sets it apart from what we are used to.
The video is shot in movie format and the story unfolds as such. We are introduced to the main characters with Riky Rick at the vanguard. There are shots of different rituals performed, of youngsters planning an uprising and the actual aftermath of it.
I Can’t Believe It (Macoins) certainly has deeper storylines within it and if you watch closely enough, you would be able to unravel them. Well done to Adriaan Louw and everyone involved in the making of this movie.
“You don’t have to like me for anything, but you are going to love me for this video. I can pass away after this.”
The single is available for purchase on all major digital stores.

#TrapTuesday With Pretoria Rapper, KK
Pretoria based artist KK has dropped his second offering titled No More. This is after his debut single, Dope, which features super talented producer Zoocci Coke made enough waves to get him recognized. No More is a new wave on its own he sounds to be heartbroken or in a different state of mind all together.
KK is actually not a bad rapper and his vault of hidden hits speaks for him. No More is one for the streets but most importantly this could get him much needed and deserved traction. The Trap influenced beat with the kicking bass line is sure to get bumped at clubs all across the country.
He raps about a girl he used to kick it with but got his heart terribly broken. This is a story almost everyone can relate to. He describes a deep love with her but the tune changes when he begins to paint with his words exactly what tore them apart.
No More is a joint about a heartbroken man who learned his lesson the hard way. KK produced one hell of a joint for this one! Link up with the kid on his social media to get more updates on the music.
