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…”
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.

“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.
