"PURE AFRICAN RAPS" The mix-tape
THE X-GENERATION MUSIK FAMILY IS HAPPY AND PROUD TO BE BEHIND THE PROJECT ‘PURE AFRICAN RAPS’ WITH CYRUS THE VIRUS. ON THIS PROJECT WE’VE EMBARKED ON WORKING WITH SOME OF THE FINEST LYRICSIST TO TEAM UP WITH CYRUS, TO RECORD SOME OF THE FINEST AND THEE DOPEST HIP HOP MIXTAPE MUSIC FROM AN AFRICAN PERSPECTIVE. WE’VE ALSO WORKED WITH A LOT OF DIFFERENT INDEPENDENT STUDIOS AND PRODUCERS TO DIVERSIFY THE MIXTAPE FEEL SO THAT EVERY TRACK STANDS OUT ON ITS OWN, ALSO TOOK SOME INTERNATIONAL BEATS TO FUTHER HELP THE AFRICAN CONTENT TO BREAK INTERNATIONAL BARRIERS. WE’VE ALREADY DONE A FEW TRACKS AND ALREADY WE ARE CONVINCED THAT THIS IS GONNA BE ONE OF THE GIANT MIXTAPE IN THE WORLD OF MIXTAPES AND WE ARE PROUD TO GIVE OUR STAMP OF APPROVAL BY PLACING OUR LOGO ON IT… X-GENERATION MUSIK: MUTANT MUSIK.
I thank god everyday for the talent he has blessed me with, to express myself through music and the arts. The wonderful people I’ve met and have yet still to meet when travelling not to mention their love and support. I REMEMBER When team efforts events hosted my listening session at an outdoor park and it started to rain just when the performances were about to start, everyone who was there quickly chipped in to secure the p.a system and we all went in unity to another indoor spot where we set up and continued with the show. Everybody had fun and enjoyed themselves that night. Memories as such keep me fired up and inspired to be the best I can be musically and hope to give back to my supporters everything I can artistically, my latest effort being the pending mix tape ‘pure African raps’. I am in studio currently in the process of laying down tracks for the mix tape. I have only 4 tracks that I did solo on the project of which two of them are already available as singles for free downloads. To sample them you can visit www.kasimp3.co.za and search for cyrus the virus or alternatively you can go to www.teameffortsmedia.blogspot.com to stream the tracks. One of the solo tracks on the mix tape is going to be on vernacular which I felt was very important for me and FOR THE BENEFIT OF my supporters to touch base on that, very challenging, seeing that I’m used to rapping in English but IN A fun WAY. NOW, THE COLLABORATIONS IM PLANNING FOR THIS PROJECT, ARE GOING TO BE A HIGHLIGHT IN MY MUSIC CAREE FOR A LONG TIME TO COME I TELL YOU. ON THIS PROJECT I’LL BE WORKING WITH SOME OF MY FAVOURITE ARTISTS WHO INSPIRE ME IN A WAY THAT THEY COULD NEVER KNOW, BUT I’M SURE THEY UNDERSTAND THOUGH. SORRY FOR YOU, I’M NOT GOING TO BE NAMING NAMES AND SPOIL THE SURPRISE BUT TRUST ME WHEN I SAY HAVING ALL THEM PEOP’S IN ONE PROJECT IS GIFT FROM THE HEAVENS I SAY. During the recording of the mix tape, a live d.v.d of the product will be shot and it will be flight on the youtube channel ‘africanraps’. You can frequently visit that to get to see the extra clips. SINCE IT’S A MIX TAPE, I AM NOT THAT STRICT WHEN IT COME TO BEATS. I MIXED INTERNATIONAL AND LOCAL BEATS MOSTLY LOCAL. I USED THE NEW SCHOOL SOUND WHEN IT COMES TO INTERNATIONAL BEATS MY AIM BEING NOT TO ALIENATE THE NEW SCHOOL GENERATION FROM MY MUSIC AND TO GET OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE AND TRY SOMETHING NEW OF WHICH I HOPE MY LISTNERS OUT THERE WILL FIND IT FRESH. WE EXPECT TO DROP THIS PRODUCT AROUND JULY OR AUGUST DEPENDING….
