Johannesburg – On Friday, multiple award winning South African rapper, K.O, finally dropped his new album SR2. 

“Today we are releasing the album. It’s exciting for me, I am pretty anxious just to see and hear the feedback from people,” said the rapper known as the Skhanda Gawd. 

Here’s a look at the album cover, which in this photo, is being held by DJ Black Coffee:

SR2 comes three after the success of the critically acclaimed K.O debut album Skhanda Republic

K.O on  staying true to the Skanda sound:

“Staying true to the Skhanda sound means, I don’t need to constantly updating it or giving it a current feel, which is what I did with this new album. Those who know the first chapter of Skhanda Republic, they will know that there was a lot of kwaito influence and that was the wave back then. Music as a whole inspired this album, I had to still bring in those elements that will make will still make my sound distinctly mine, not too far-off from what I have done in the past, ” he said.

Diving into the actual album, Mr Cashtime opened up about what you can expect from the highly anticipated hip hop album:

“When people hear the album in comparison to the first Skhanda Republic they will be able to see traces of what we did before only we have upgraded it and made it sound even more melodically and musically sensible. The Relationship between the previous and current album is in me continuing on the journey that I created with the sound itself but in terms of the emotions and energy, its two different chapters of my life. Back then I was more invested in proving myself, my skill set as an artists and my lyricism but this time around I felt like I needed to give people actual substance and talk about matters of the heart and things that really affect us,” he said. 

Here's where you can get K.O's new album:

The album which is physically available across the country in all music stores is also on iTunes and streaming on Apple Music. Speaking on the release of his second album, K.O could not hide his excitement.
