Gebaste Rhymes sent us a link to his single ‘Kaap issie Bom’ [translated: Cape is the Bomb], the first single off One Day Vol. 1. The full album (or audio hip-hopumentary) will be out later in 2012 and “forms part of a larger alternative education initiative.” Gebaste Rhymes describes himself as “a Cape born artist whose audacious style matches his name” and explains that “the song captures a distinctly Cape sense of humour while producer Hybrit Pettens and DJ e-20 laces it with that classic boombap sound.” We have a suspicion who Gebaste Rhymes is. Take a listen.
