Shane Eagle has just dropped off his new ‘AMMO’ single today that features’ YoungstaCPT and is said to be an expression of rhythmic force reserved for two independent MC’s, unified in the midst of a “world reset” to supersede the current format of anarchy. In this context, Shane Eagle and YoungstaCPT link up for a long-awaited collaboration as a lyrical offering to the globe, where the connection of their realms is said to speak for a multifocal cause. Produced by ShaneyJ, ‘AMMO’ is further said to be here to strengthen the idea of embracing a rebirth of creation in the midst of the consistent apothegm, “history repeats itself”, reinstating the case of human fallacy.
The song also has visuals to accompany its release that have not been shared yet but we know is set on the streets of Cape Town and is shot from an aerial perspective of a city landscape, directed by visual artist Nicole Swartz as a maze, with Alfonzo Franke guiding the camera.
As the artiste’s navigate a new era, they simultaneously maintain their role of rewriting barriers of expression. An extension includes a subtle thread to the narrative and is reflected in interchanging scenes that captures the rappers climb on the grounds of the historical “East Fort” site, intentionally scouted by filmmaker Imraan Christian as a symbol for the collapse of previously enforced ideologies that continues to affect the people of South Africa today.
In retrospect, ‘AMMO’ really does make a full circle swing for the artists to fire away with ammunition, as they forge onto the introduction of their individual upcoming projects. As such, Shane Eagle is said to be aiming to advance the platinum status of the internationally acclaimed mixtape Dark Moon Flowerwhilst YoungstaCPT surpasses endurance in the arrangement of an unprecedented upcoming 31st project.
