A proverbial glitch in the music industry matrix, ZuluMecca is a unique blend of character in the character arch of South Africa's Hip-Hop Story. A seasoned freshman who lost everything in her past artist life, she stands to gain everything from the foundation set by her Of Angels and Ancestors foundation.
ZuluMecca throws a lyrical bar mitzvah celebrating the 40 days and 40 nights that made her a [STAY LOW] signee with the surprise release of FABLE distributed by [STAY LOW].
FABLE features production from Shooterkhumz and Mars Baby (who lends his vocal talents in the chorus of "HEAD OVER HEALING"), mixing and mastering from Herc Cut The Lights and photography from Khotso Tsaagane (@khotsotsaagane) and cover artwork by Masonwabe Ntloko (@masonwabentloko).
With an appetizing tracklist of 3 songs, namely DO YOU GET BITCHES, HEAD OVER HEALING (Feat. Mars Baby), and STARVING, Mecca implored her trust into tight-knit, creating a snapshot catharsis for her existential woes. Detouring from the norm of the mountains Mecca has to move she is faced with an inevitable cross-road: Does she keep her core blend of spiritual rap or trade her quintessential subject matter for mainstream appeal?
A decent from the heavenly realm and existential crises, FABLE investigates her earthy matters unpacking the politics of consoling trauma, navigating the practicality of occupying the mainstream hip-hop space, and a staunch craving for material success to supplement her spiritual wealth.
ZuluMecca takes the more human route with a microdose introduction to the fears, desires and flaws that remind the global audience at large that behind the ancestral guide of Hip-Hope lies a flawed human looking for answers, growing, in parables.
