Listen to Thato Saul’s highly anticipated album ‘Life is Gangsta’
Saulsville lyricist Thato Saul’s highly anticipated album Life is Gangsta has arrived. The 13-track project, as you already know from the tracklist released a few days ago, features A-Reece, Marcus Harvey, Tron Pyre, Tyson Sybateli and Maglera Doe Boy.
Life is Gangsta is gritty with a soulful touch; Thato Saul’s sharp storytelling raps sit perfectly over a combination of trap and boom-bap production.
Asked about what fans should expect on this album in our recent cover story, Thato Saul said:
“The listeners should expect Thato Saul to still be very honest and truthful. To still be digging deep inside and presenting something that shows how I truly feel. No cuts, no cap – just the truth and my life experiences. They should expect features also, which is something I don’t really do but, for this project, I tried it out. The people who listen to my music aren’t used to me working with other people on my own songs, so I wanted to bring that dynamic in for this project. Something new. The title song is a song that really cuts deep, and I hope that it will resonate with a lot of people. Especially the homies out here in these streets. It’s things we go through, but don’t express, because we simply choose not to. It’s the most important song I’ve ever written.”
And, yes, the album’s artwork looks familiar because it appeared on the same cover story cited above. You can read it here.
Life is Gangsta was one of the most anticipated South African hip-hop albums of 2022. Thato Saul has built a great buzz around his name through his street-centric raps on multiple singles and releases that include his 2021 collaborative album with MashBeatz titled IF YOU KNOW, YOU KNOW. The inside joke on the title, of course, is just how dope Thato Saul has been, so those who knew kind of had an idea things would get to where they are now. It’s PTA’s time to shine.
