Tuks Senganga - MC Prayer

2007-08-06 12:33
 
He doesn’t need much prayer because from the first beat and the first utterance, you are going to be bobbing your head to superb production by Impact Sounds, first-class class beats and well-thought lyrics. Tuks keeps the original recipe that made him a household name: fast delivery of meaningful lyrics in seTswana and English.

Granted, there is no “525 600 minutes” or “Let Live”, hits from Mafoko a me (2005), which can be seen as a weakness. But there’s “Ticket To Jozi” which features Thembisile’s marvelous rich vocals on a remake of “Midnight Train to Georgia” a song made famous by Gladys Knight & the Pips. There’s also an ode to eKasi “Kgosi Tsa Kasi” (Kings of the Township) which has a playful synthesised sound.

This is Tuks’ first album with EMI, after a move from Ghetto Ruff. In an interview, Tuks said the move was “Just a business move and more opportunities for growing the Tuks brand”. He had to work fast to release a follow up to Mafoko a me. Even with standout hits missing, he does not completely disappoint. The Maf Town rapper has mixed intelligent lyrics with great beats to create an album worth owning. Even if listeners don’t verstaan seTswana, they’ll surely enjoy the music from “Remember Where?”, “Monate Thwaa”, “Lebotha” and more.

Motswako e monate thata! (For the linguistically challenged: Motswako, Tswana hip hop, is too hot). Tuks Senganga has proved it. After a highly acclaimed album that resulted in several awards, including a SAMA, Tuks is back with MC Prayer.
