He is not a stranger to these streets having been featured before on this platform. Well, Sipho the Gift is back from a year long hiatus with some of that newness in the form of his latest joint, The Man.
Sipho The gift describes The Man as an anthem: “You ever been through a life defining test of character in your life? One where you come out the other end triumphantly beating your chest like King Kong at the top of the Empire state building, letting out a roar of victory? Chances are you had an anthem, just like The Man playing in your head.”
Sipho the Gift presents a glorious anthem set against triumphant strings and punchy drums composed by Sipho himself. The song speaks of Sipho’s extensive personal struggles and the champion spirit it took to conquer and put it all in the music.
It’s quite refreshing to hear that he hasn’t lost any of the lyrical prowess that he is so well known for even on this Trap influenced beat. There is is just something dope about when a rappers rapper throws down on a trap beat; it’s kind of confusing isn’t it? Like, should we dance or listen. But The Man is a nice balance between Sipho rapping and showing heart and the beat allowing the listener to bump it and dance to.
The Man is the first single off Sipho the Gift’s upcoming EP, Kintsugi.
