Talented South African rapper Senzo Mfundo Vilakazi, popularly known as Kwesta, has released a new jam with Rich Homie Quan and we are really feeling it.
The song title Run It Up is a masterpiece because it offers different styles and elements off rapping, I’m sure you will agree with me on this after listening to it.
Rich Homie Quan dominates the first half of this song with melodic raps and a catchy hook before Kwesta delivers a verse that reps his hood and reminisces of his upbringing.
Maybe it is just me but the fact that Kwesta’s verse was in Zulu really spiced up this jam. It brought a lot of life and is the main reason why I’ve have had this song on replay since I first heard it.
Unlike Kwesta’s previous releases like Ngud, Spirit and Vur Vai, this jam wasn’t influenced by the Kwaito sound but that does not mean that it’s not dope. Actually, this departure is commendable since he nailed it.
I totally love the video concept for Run It Up, it shows them in the hood performing before various backgrounds that include rooftops and an excited audience of ordinary community members.
Watch Run It Up below and tell us what you think.
