MUSIC REVIEW: Da L.E.S brings his A game

2017-01-15 06:01

Johannesburg - To round off 2016, hip-hop artist and producer Da L.E.S released a fresh new track called Lifestyle and it became an instant hit over the holidays.

On Lifestyle he and Family Tree rapper Gemini Major bring their A game, with their rap styles perfectly complementing each other on this heavy bass trap number.

I will admit that the twang is strong with them and when I first heard Lifestyle on radio I just assumed I was listening to a new artist from the US. On the other hand, that also means that our hip-hop has grown so strong these past few years that artists like Da L.E.S are matching international standards.

The music video has all those elements (champagne, half-naked white women, mansions in the suburbs) that are sure to be aspirational to young South Africans who wants to join the hip-hop game.

For the rest of us, Lifestyle has made our journey home after a busy day a whole lot better.
