South African rap yellow bone Da L.E.S launched his latest album offering this past chilly Sunday evening on the 15th of June, The highly anticipated album launch took place at Taboo in Sandton, Johannesburg. Mandela Money is Da L.E.S’ sophomore album and includes popular hits such as Heaven ft AKA and Maggz, and FIRE. The turn up was incredible as the club was packed out with some hot honnies and Joburg ballers, The show started late though as the man of the moment only performed at about 3 AM and the sound was really bad, I expected him to perform tracks that we didn’t know but he kept it safe and only performed tracks that are already out. The lineup was insane, with the likes of AKA, Khuli Chana, Maggz, MVD (Milkshake, Vigilante & Dimplez), Twins on Decks, Fanatic and Capital. Fans can pre-order Mandela Money on iTunes and receive Dice, Da L.E.S’ new single off the album. The physical copy of the album as well as the full copy on iTunes will be available from 4 July 2014.It was an awesome party and people partied till the early hours of the morning.
