I struggle to think of a Hip Hop song that has generated such a massive buzz in this part of the continent before it was even released. Cassper Nyovest has been teasing this song during his live set for 2 months now & the hype generated has been intense. So big, that the song’s simple yet artistically impressive artwork managed to trend on South African Twitter when it was released last week.
Onto the song itself; Doc Shebeleza is a high energy track with a trap beat very similar to any of Lex Luger’s last 20 offerings. Above the intense backdrop & head nodding chant Cassper displays an impressive level of dexterity & wit while switching his flow several times throughout the track, including a hilarious 4 bar sequence where he acknowledges his desire to get with Minnie Dlamini’s while he borrows iFani‘s flow.
