One of the most legendary names in our hip hop culture (Google his repertoire if this is the first time you've ever heard of him), Tongogara:Battlekat has shared new music.
Americanization is the official single from his forthcoming album called Beats Against The Beast Act II: A Future Past In The Present. The song is a reflection of Battlekat’s view on the state of world politics; accentuating the impact that American media has had on the social and economic dynamics in South Africa, and further expounds the model of “Roman imperialism” and its evolution; “Anglo-American Neo- imperialism” threading with theological and historical themes. His upcoming album is a follow up to Beats Against The Beast Vol.1: The Re-Genesis 2006 which had guest features from the likes of Optical Illusion, Zubz, Tumi (Stogie T), Proverb, Mawe2, Golden Shovel, X-Rate, Mr.Beef, Reason, Instro, Wizardry, Ms Nthabi, Mr.C, PRO, Maggz, Explicit, and Parable. The single is a perfect example of the topics you can expect him to field on the project as Americanization holds topics of African colonisation at its very belly. Battlekat also purposefully steps into the limelight by grabbing the mic to share his thoughts and he doesn't fall short on the bars. How can one person be this gifted? Tap into the song and put your fist up for black power. ALUTA CONTINUA.
