Last week Friday YoungstaCPT dropped off his 3rd & final single from his upcoming 3T album (dropping this Friday) called ‘YAATIE’. Produced by J-Beatz, this song is a very personal track to YoungstaCPT as it speaks about his life growing up as a young coloured man in Wittebome, Cape Town. Most people don’t realise that YoungstaCPT’s personal nickname to family and close friends is actually, YAATIE. “I’m Yaatie / Yaatie / You know he’s a laanie / probably know your sister and your taanie / my bru his names Yaatie / Yaatie / go ask the taxi drivers and the gaatjies / they say they know Yaatie ” The music video was directed and shot by Imraan Christian in one take and filmed in Wittebome, Wynberg which is evidently where YoungstaCPT’s story begins.
“I felt it was only right for me to shoot it in front of the house I grew up in as well as in the street I played outside to paint a picture visually of where these stories took place. Almost like a typical day in the life of a boy from the hood.” – YoungstaCPT
