Black Stars: Tumi and Zubz ARE AT IT AGAIN

The original black stars are at it again. Arguably the two most prolific and iconic MCs in Africa and long-time friends came together in the stu this past December to write another chapter in rap history. Tumi (from the V) and Zubz the last letter have made a gang of joints together in the past so when 2011 ended with no collaborative work from them, I was quite dissapointed. So when Tumi released, through his Twitter account (@TumiVolume) that the two recorded something over the holidays, and that it was a throwback project largely inspired by the kwaito golden era, it made me both excited and curious. This is what the man himself had to say:

“This is a mixtape Zubz and i did in 3 days. We hadn’t worked together
the whole of last yer and that felt unusual for us.
December always makes us think back to the golden era of kwaito and it
hit us, do a kwaito mixtape. Our approach was not to over think the
process, just do what comes and we set a three day limit for
ourselves. Our engineer Instro chopped up the old school kwaito hits
and we wrote song 3 songs a day. We not trying to ride on anybody’s
fame or glory, we just wanted to reintepret some of our favourite
kwaito tunes and try and relive those magic moments, but most
importantly pay homage to the original artists.”
