Coming from Cresta, North of Johannesburg, is an independent young Hip Hop Trio that goes by the name Major Steez. They are our #Traptuesday feature today.
The group consists of Kyle Jacobs aka Major, Sihle Mabena aka Steez and Sandile aka Sandi the 1. They began recording and producing their own music since 2013 and have crafted their own unique style which is classical songs fused with hard hitting 808’s. Their flow sets them apart from what rappers are saying right now which gives them a strong selling point.
They have made their TV debut on SABC’s Newsroom and having their single topping radio charts whilst their music video was doing rounds on MTV they ended up in talks with Mabala Noise but due to their schooling they had to put the deal on ice as it required a lot of travelling.
Their latest song, Broke Boys, is a welcomed surprise because the gents sound proper. They rap about being in a position to work hard and grind even hard because nobody wants a dude who’s broke, especially the ladies.
The beat is produced by Punkxxboyband and to be honest, it is well made. It has trap elements but still has those hard hitting 808s and booming bass sound. And the gents ride the beat like a wave and bring forth a variety of melodies and flows.
They have been working hard in studio upon the release of their next EP titled What Is This Life? They have been working on features with the likes of FreshByCaddy, Alpha, Chris Saiyan and J Molley. Their latest music is playlisted on YFM, Vow FM and their music video is on high rotation at MTV Base.
Link up with them on social media @officialmajorsteez and check out their music on Soundcloud.

Una Rams Wavy Baby EP is finally OUT
Una Rams Wavy Baby EP is finally available on digital platforms
Soulistic Music and Airborne Records’ first joint-venture project is an EP from a young talent Una Rams. The six tracked EP titled Wavy Baby is the first commercially released project from the 22-year-old Una Rams who is a producer, singer, songwriter and rapper.
The EP includes features with the songstresses Thabsie, Shayee-Shay from Nigeria, Poet Misa Narrates and co-producer C-Tea. The first single “Joy” was released 8th June 2018 and like the title it’s a joyful, upbeat tempo love song that had the crowd singing along despite hearing it for the first at the EP launch the night before its release in Braamfontein.
Una Rams is a shortened version of both his first and last name Unarine Rambani. He was born and raised in Venda in Northern Limpopo to a Christian family of six children. As a child Una grew up in a church founded by his parents and as part of the worship team where he learned how to produce music, play the drums and a piano and later became a musician. His sound is a mesh of different genres of music coupled with his lyrics that evoke emotions to the listener. When asked to describe the EP he said;
Wavy Baby is a love story about a boy and a mermaid. And I know it’s the craziest thing to say to anyone but it’s because a lot of people get into relationships when they are both from two different worlds, things fall through the cracks because you don’t understand each well enough, so this EP takes you through the different stages of the relationship and unfortunately it’s not a happy ending
