Fly Tunes: October’s Hottest Tracks

The louder the better…

8 reasons that October sounded good!

SA hip-hop is currently sounding mad nice. The sun is finally out and our local artists are outchea putting in the work aiming to own summer 2015. What a time to be alive!

So here at Flying Fish HQ, we decided to holla at our favourite urban culture trend analyst x Puma SA Rep, Ndu Donsa to #AddSomeFlavour and give us the scoop on which local and international tracks he thinks are fly.

The Content Editor at SlikourOnLife, Ndu had this to say:

“SA hip-hop is in a real interesting and fun space with many artists dropping records at a frantic pace wanting to own summer. The culture right now is making sure that everything is about quality and artists are really going hard in giving a quality product from music videos to song productions.”

Clearly the man knows what he’s talking about, so skip your regular playlist and turn up Ndu’s 8 track playlist of pure fire.

K2 – LIT

You may know K2 from Big Brother, but he also happens to be one talented MC. Making a lot of noise in these streets, K2 dropped “Lit” just the other day, and it’s already set to be a smash record.

AEWON WOLF – FEVER

Aewon X Gemini Major did everything to make this the summer record that you should be vibing to.

DREAMTEAM – SHANDIS

DreamTeam links up with SA hip-hop’s go-to producer at the moment Anatii, who made sure he gives the trio a summer smash hit.

OKMALUMKOOLKAT – MAPAKISHA 2.5

100kMacassete has to be the flyest local hip-hop mixtape dropped this year. “Kim Maphakisha 2.5” is one of the top jams of the mixtape, and it’s definitely one for the summer.

 FUTURE FT. DRAKE – WHERE YA AT

“What A Time To Be Alive” is a standout album and this track is one of my favourite jams.

 

TRAVIS SCOTT – ANTIDOTE

Here’s the situation: next time you’re at a pool party or just vibing out, and this track plays, feel free to savour the flavour of the moment because it’s that type of record from Travis Scott.

 

DRAKE – HOTLINE BLING

Already getting a lot of attention, this is Drake’s current hit single, and he adds some serious flavour with those dance moves, bro.

MAC MILLER – CLUBHOUSE

Closing off the list of tracks that should do well in summer, internationally we have Mac Miller “Club House” taken off his GO:OD AM album.
