Hip-hop artist Slum­Dawg has just released his debut EP ‘The New Soweto’. This fol­lows on from the debut single ‘Feed The Streets’, released in October.
“Soweto has been the core of South Africa’s Hip Hop scene since the early 2000s. How­ever, our pres­ence in the game is not as impact­ful as it was before. This album will intro­duce Soweto to the whole world.” — SlumDawg
‘The New Soweto’ is ded­ic­ated to Slum­Dawg’s fath­er, who sadly passed away a few months ago. Look­ing to revolu­tion­ise the Afric­an hip-hop scene, he draws from both old-school and mod­ern hip hop sens­ib­il­it­ies in order to cre­ate a truly unique listen­ing exper­i­ence. Slum­Dawg’s dis­tinct­ive vocal deliv­ery and flow is com­ple­men­ted per­fectly by the min­im­al yet melod­ic pro­duc­tion of Mat­teBlu, at the helm of the entire project.
Hail­ing from Soweto, one of South Africa’s most prom­in­ent town­ships, Slum­Dawg describes him­self as ‘reclus­ive yet assert­ive’. An avid hip-hop fan, he has spent years hon­ing his craft whilst com­pet­ing on the battle-rap­ping scene in his home nation. Inspired by the likes of Nas, The Notori­ous BIG and Pro Kid, Slum­Dawg looks to build a future for him­self with his lyr­ic­al prowess, along with start­ing his own label ‘Black Fist Cartel’.
‘The New Soweto’ is avail­able now across all major stream­ing platforms.
