Last week Friday the Queen of Mzansi rap, Nadia Nakai, released another hard hitting track titled ’40 Bars’. The song enlists the help of talented trapper Emtee, as well as additional vocals and production from DJ Capital. Taking a slightly different approach to a traditional song, both artists display their lyrical prowess by rapping for 40 bars each (hence the title).
Produced by PatricKxxlee, this track was exclusively debuted by world renowned radio DJ, Ebro Daren on his Apple Music Beats 1 show, Rap Life. The two met recently during Ebro’s recent trip to South Africa where he expressed his deep support and love for her work. Ebro even named Nadia on his list of most impactful artists of 2019. The list included major names such as Nas, Burna Boy and Stormzy who all released huge projects last year.
Working with Emtee and Capital has been so dope, what we share in common is the hunger for people to hear our thoughts through our music and that’s why this song is 40 bars vs 16 bars- because we have a lot to say LOL. I hope true Hip Hop fans enjoy this one because we are taking it back!”- Says rapper Nadia Nakai.
With memorable lyrics and a hard hitting beat, 40 Bars is set to become a huge hit to end off the summer season with hip hop fans still buzzing from the excitement from Nadia’s latest single More Drugs. A collaboration between two rap superstars and a talented DJ is something the industry and its audience always look forward to and 40 Bars is no exception.
