King Kaka has done it again, this time with yet another poetic blow to the African Hip hop industry; East Kwa Mabeast. As part of his latest album, Eastlando Royalty, the famous lyricist takes us back to his humble beginning while he was growing up.
Just a few days ago, Kaka’s club banger, ‘Dundaing’ was played at an NBA game as DAL faced Portland and things couldn’t be going any better for the Kaka Empire rap genius. Even so, he still finds ways to give back to his fans by reminding them where he came from, an attribute not many celebrities identify to today.
East Kwa Mabeast, right from the start, takes us back to King Kaka’s indigent background back when he was growing up. “Sijakushow kwetu tulikuwa best friends na njaa,”(I haven’t told you back in the day hunger was our best friend) he raps. He goes on to explain how he got kicked out of school many times and how his mom had to work between jobs to feed them. The tone of the song gets critical towards the end, where he talks about dirty politics and corrupt leaders.
The video is yet another brilliant masterpiece, mainly showing altering images of what seems like a black panther or a leopard, and being a self-made Hip hop king, it’s not hard to see why he chose to go with the cat family. It’s no doubt that King Kaka is shaping the Hip Hop industry into a philosophical genre, a move that keep him on top of the game.
