Spotlight On
Pretoria rapper Wordz has built a reputation as a rock-solid lyricist known for his numerous collaborations with A-Reece, and now his solo work that sets him apart. In spite of his reclusive nature, the MC has amassed a cult following thanks to his relatable, honest, and technically audacious raps, showcased expertly across his two albums, Product of a Praying Mother (2021) and People Forget To Be People (2023).

First To Know
“My new album, People Forget To Be People is a beautiful reflection of humanity, life experiences, memories and human connection through my eyes,” he tells Apple Music. “This album has also given me my second No. 1 album back-to-back. Independence hasn’t sounded or looked this good in a while!”

Rap Life Africa serves as a companion to Apple Music’s flagship hip-hop playlist, Rap Life.
