Talented up and coming rapper Humphrxy is out with a new single. The Durban-based artist celebrates Steez Bonani’s birthday, his producer, by releasing Last Seen featuring label mate and fellow rapper, Trill.Gxd.
Last Seen is the 22 year olds first single off his rumoured upcoming debut project FOR THE FEAR OF GOD. When describing the single, Humphrxy says, “It’s a dedication to the youth… the kids who’ve been shun out because of how they act or behave.”
He further states that this is the song for the outlaws, the non conformists who make up their own rules, “I’ve been through some things that have made me realize that the world expects you to act a certain way and if you don’t you’ll get thrown outside. This is the song for all those outsiders. The kids who feel bad about themselves because they’ve been made to believe how they see the world is whack. F*** that.”
The joint is fresh and has a laid back about it. It is not trappy but has the exciting bass line and the weird percussion which make this a song that you can both vibe to while listening to. Last Seen is not too far a departure from what Humphrxy does which is dope because this sound is not only fresh but it’s different.
This isn’t Humphrxy’s first release, he rapper has released a few other singles this year, most notably Dragon and Phrxy Drugs which are both produced by SteezBonani. The two singles have made airwaves on radio, with DJ LèSoul praising Phrxy Drugs which currently sits on MoveHipHop SA’s 031 Top 10 chart.

LISTEN: PatricKxxLee Drops New Single, Ghosts Love Me
PatricKxxLee addresses depression in Ghosts Love Me
Zambinan-born PatricKxxLee has been going through a rough patch. Having checked himself into rehab for depression two weeks ago, he now asked his manager to drop Ghosts Love Me.
Classified as “Goth Trap”, the multi-talented artist and producer states:
“I made this track in my darkest moments.”
The short song is about the voices in his head persuading him that suicide is the answer. They say lines like: “You should just end it all now”. He also raps about feeling that all is lost anyway. He continues that he’s no longer scared to follow through: “I see ghosts in my room, and I ain’t scared of them”, “Fuck it I started, I might as well finish”.
While Ghosts Love Me is not included in his upcoming album Nowhere Child, the track still somewhat serves as a preamble for the emotionally charged and highly anticipated project dropping later this year. Patrick says the album will be a brutally honest summary of all the self-contemplation he’s been going through lately, and a radical new sound.
Patrick’s message for those battling depression
Patrick’s been battling depression for a while now and this song is a small summation of that. Depression is a little talked about taboo topic, and yet it’s widespread among the Youth. A lot of Patrick’s music addresses depression and related substance abuse, in a hope to make others going through a similar experience feel like they are not alone.
Instead of disappearing in secret, Patrick wanted to make a statement that it’s okay to seek help when things get too rough. He hopes to encourage others not to suffer in silence. After weeks of excessive drinking and contemplating suicide, he checked into a clinic for treating his depression a few weeks ago. We hope he gets better.
