South African recording artist, Shabzi Madallion has kicked off 2018 on a very high note, no pun intended.
Also known as, “Dallirated” the unorthodox rapper recently dropped two projects in the second month of the year. One is a mixtape compilation, “Things I Should Have Said Last Year and a much-anticipated EP, “For The People” a week after the mixtape hit the net.
The lead up to this new EP is like nothing I have seen on the circuit in a while where Shabzi dropped freestyle’s in every week of January where he jumped on popular SA Hip Hop beats that were well recognized last year, namely ‘Tito Mboweni‘ & ‘Don’t Forget To Pray‘.
Some of the tracks on the EP, you should look out for:
It’s My House:
“Mom’s asking me when you gonna do it solo, helping everybody got you feeling so low.”
“I pray to God I never move backwards. I pray to God he give a nigga passwords.”
I Don’t Get That:
“Niggas talking Pablo, The Painter with all these guns on the side and I don’t get that.”
Who de Best:
“Every season it’s vote for me like a politician and you supposed to make us think you’re not politicking.”
“What if I told you I’m planning to sell everything that will get me to hell, would you follow me? No.”
Soul, his debut album that dropped early in 2017, gave viewers a clear indication of the direction he’s going and that’s the future.
Dallirated is one artist who quickly realized that the road he’s on isn’t for the faint-hearted and sulking about things not working out for you won’t get you anywhere in life.
Failure is better than never trying.
Either get on the hamster wheel and run or get off and watch others.
