Umlazi’s very own, Robin Thirdfloor, has been a rising star for a minute now. He has worked with notable act such as DJ Tira, Youngsta and Ginger Trill to name a few and has also cultivated his own unique sound and style in the process.
The rapper was previously featured here and has proven that we should not sleep on him, under any circumstances.
Durban´s rising hip-hop star Robin Thirdfloor presents his new single, Somdanger, a neo-kwaito club banger, paying tribute to the Durban nightlife. The rapper defines Somdanger as a township slang word for someone who is fearless and lives life by their own rules.
The video for this joint is sick as hell. Granted, the kasi concept is not something terribly new but so is Robin Thirdfloor’s style, but that doesn’t mean it’s not something we should proudly fukx with. His sound has that 70’s and 80’s drums and baselines- that old school type of vibe.
The visuals for this joint are crisp but also show a the grime of the hood. I appreciated, among many others, the psychedelic use of colour and saturation which gives this video an old school feel.
Peeps have been showing major love for the video and for Robin’s hustle, check them out:

Now that I’ve seen the #SomDanger visuals,I think I’d listen to that tape.
