Leo Analogy is no stranger to this platform so imagine our glee when we saw that he just dropped his EP titled P A I N T. This body of work is most def on our #TrapTuesday radar.
Phenyo Maleho Loabile better known by his moniker Leo Analogy, is a 24 year old musician born and raised in Mafikeng, currently based in Johannesburg. Being from Maf Town, Leo gives us massive hope that what he comes with is golden because that is where most of the talented rappers in the industry come from.
In the build up of his career he has only released a few singles of his own, had over 50% features and writing credits on two featured mixtapes and 3 songs on a compilation respectively. Earlier last year, Leo analogy was introduced to us via his joint titled Mo Teng. It was a bold introduction to is brand and his style and I have to admit that it is sounding like something the Motswako movement would treasure.
P A I N T is a massive body of work featuring 13 tracks which are a worthy listen. Leo Analogy doesn’t hold back and when listening to this project, it is clear to hear that a lot of work went into making it. The beats are beautifully made! My word.
They vary from Trap Soul inspired to the Maskandi influenced and just another unknown element which is still a mystery until now. Although there were tracks in this album which were sub par in a sense compared to the larger scheme of things- the good still outweighs the bad and those are facts. Peace to the beat makers and producers who put this EP together.
Everything about P A I N T is a great effort; Leo went in hard with some of the verses and to be honest, his pen game has improved and his story is now clear. He has a point of view as an artist now and it is both exciting and earnest. Also, there is something to be said about how the album was arranged that also tells its own stories plus the effort that Leo went into bringing a very musical element to this project while also adding distinctly African sounds is amazing!
Listen to the album below!
NEW MUSIC: Eastern Cape Rapper, Nate, Drops Gotta Get It Ft. MSA
Self proclaimed South Coast King, Hip Hop sensation, Nate, has dropped new single for his fans titled Gotta Get It. This is the second single to come from the charismatic rapper and it features his frequent collaborator and producer, MSA.
What exactly is Gotta Get It about?
Gotta Get It, produced by MSA, is a song about overcoming life struggles and making Mom proud through the trials and tribulations of chasing the dream. Nate once again shows his skills both as a hook master accompanied by the impeccable delivery of flawless verses.
The MSA produced beat serves as a fitting canvass for Nate’s message and hunger to succeed. The Trap inspired and fast paced beat is a perfect head banger and we have to admit that MSA and Nate are often a great pair on any song. Plus this type of song is what we have known Nate to produce in the past.
Nate has quite an impressive resume which stretches over the past couple of years he has been making music. He has released a number of singles which have highlighted his growing musical skill, effortless flows and catchy hooks. The Trap influenced Rolly and the laid back Friendzone featuring Zola and Ngeke Balunge are just a few of his songs. Plus his growing fan base cannot get enough of him!
Bringing a fresh approach in the music scene with his authentic trap flows, a lot can be expected from Nate this year. We can expect new music as well as his debut album in the last quarter of 2018.
Keep up to date to with Nate on his social media, @nate_rsa, for more updates on his music.
Peep the song below!
