R.I.P. King Daniel

July 29, 2010 Free MP3, Music 6 Comments

Just heard the terrible news that Bongani Mangcu aka King Daniel aka Terror Daniel passed away last night.

R.I.P. homie – this track is dedicated to you…

“Heads held high, this is a battle cry,
for all my kings in this warrior kingdom…”

Unreleased King Daniel track… Rags to Riches (free download – click the little black arrow on the right)
Rags to Riches – King Daniel by PioneerUnit

I’ve also had this track on my hard drive for years. It’s called Creep. I don’t know who all the emcees are but it features a nice verse by King Daniel. It’s an unmastered studio edit so it’s a bit rough. Apologies if you own the copyright – let me know and I’ll take it down.
Creep by PioneerUnit

“So unlearn with us, this is higher that Richard Pryor,
with a prior record to try your effort,
while the second place gets lapped,
for trying to extract resources like Jan van Riebeek,
if I was a tape you’d have pushed eject,
all of these Western ways we reject,
multinationals owning this land of ours,
raped Mother Afrika in front of her kids for hours,
that turned to days, and days to weeks,
weeks to years and years to Century City,
set up infrastructures that’s essentially shitty,
nothing’s changed, they still treating us like we’re mentally pitied,
third class citizens, word art infidels,
in Fidel’s school of thought we sustaining ourselves while fools abort,
like radio stations and pay for play we hold it down with no paperweight,
too many fish in the sea to take the bait,
so I advise you to stay awake cause life is something that can make or break,
most learn that the hard way and didn’t get to see vandals gamble like cards played.
Amandla!”

Anyway, better late than never. This banger is yours to download for FREE (click the little black downwards-pointing arrow on the right of the widget below)…

spo0ky / Rattex Collaborate for NIKE IAM1 Campaign

Anne-Sophie Leens aka spo0ky created a set of images to illustrate the concept of a track Rattex made for the Nike IAM1 campaign called, AirMaxin’. The track is about Rattex’s desire to succeed, despite the limiting expectations some township people try to force upon him.

Rattex uses his new Nikes as a metaphor for ‘making it’ – they are a symbol of success, but they also represent the daily hustle to survive and escape the forces that are trying to hold him back.

‘Movement’ is an essential part of any journey. spo0ky’s images show Rattex in series of dynamic situations which are distilled metaphors for overcoming the negative aspects of his environment that are trying to hold him back – there are always obstacles in his path, but by making the right choices with constant purpose, he stay on the right path.

Driemanskap have been working around the clock on their debut album, Igqabhukil’ Inyongo. I can say without any hype, it’s going to take SA by storm – there hasn’t been anything this powerful since POC.

We know you’re hungry for the album to drop but hold tight fam – soon come! In the mean time, Ma-B and El Nino blessed a killer Hipe production yesterday. Check out eKapa Silapha (Cape Town, We’re here)…
