THE SESSION
This week’s RAP ACTIVITY saw local mc’s, EXJ, SUBMCZ, OASIS DEEP DOWN AND DEMONIC CHRIST snarl-up on the microphone with vengeance and widening the orbit of expression, touching socio-economic issues on its basic data.

What was more uplifting was the quality of political awareness, the knowledge of self and the natural simplicity of lyrics guided appropriately to address troubled times of our economy.

On this week’s show, one didn’t have to acquire the mind of winter to regard the frost usually tilted insanely in the form of lyrics on the RAP ACTIVITY. In fact the show was close enough to reality and it came as no surprise that EXJ won. This man stole something and sold it.

By Madala

This week was high grade; all the participants performances carried thought provoking lyrics. DEMONIC CHRIST, the mc I fancied to have won, came with something out of this world, kicking lines like, ‘I see satanism practise as witches, turning water into blood flowing rivers’. EXJ truly deserved to win because his lyrics intelligently challenged the SOUTH AFRICAN political situation. Lines like; ‘materialism still remain an answer’, are true and that was nothing but the whole truth. O.D.D and SUBMCZ were on a different tip, with SUBMCZ use of explicit lyrics. O.D.D were tight but they over played the ‘knowamsaying’, kind of style.
