Last week the Lift As You Rise EP featuring 6 tracks of collaborations was made available on streaming platforms. This project was an initiative housed by Red Bull Music and Tall Racks Records that started when  almost eight months ago a call to budding African musicians to add their verses on multiple open tracks was made which excluded 16 bars, but comprised verses from of Nasty C, Tellaman, Gemini Major, Rowlene, Lastee and Zino D. Now with the release of the Lift As You Rise EP, the lives of Deekay_Did_It (Pietermaritzburg), Hanna (Cape Town), KDaVine (Pietermaritzburg), Msimisis (Swaziland), J_Reagz (Cape Town), Tembisile (Cape Town), Priscilla (Botswana), The Real Barry Lane (Nigeria), ThatoJessica (Johannesburg), Jay Hoodsa (Pretoria), and Flow Jones Jnr (Johannesburg) will see a positive shift, as their names will be scripted on a record featuring Mzansi’s established musicians.

The Lift As You Rise EP epitomises a profound concept of collaboration; a view that lets artists see how their respective flow and talent works alongside other artists. The idea stemmed from Red Bull Music’s mission for listeners to experience music like never before bringing fresh collaborations with rising talent and South Africa’s biggest hip-hop artists.
