DJ Switch & BhutLegend Drop Fire Mixtape 'Mthatha Othathayo'

By @Okayswisher on 05/31/2024 in Projects You Should Hear

DJ Switch’s mixtape run is far from over. ‘Mthatha Othathayo’, his new joint mixtape with BhutLegend, marks the Cape Town Hip-Hop pioneer’s seventh drop in about three years. 


“Mixtapes was basically my ‘fuck it’ attitude like, let’s just drop the music because everyone is holding back music,” DJ Switch said last year. “We need to put out the music. The more we shy away from dropping music, the more Hip-Hop looks like it’s not doing much. It’s important for people to keep on dropping music to show Hip-Hop lovers that, ‘hey man, we still here, doing our thing.’”


BhutLegend starts the tape by appreciating his titular hometown. "Yonke iweyi yam ndiyithathe eMthatha/ Bonke o’line bam’ ndiwufunde eMthatha,” he raps. He name-drops the streets within his hometown and he begs his own people to not take him while he’s still young as Mthatha is notoriously a dangerous town. ‘Viedgesville’, the next song, continues the same appreciation of his town as it’s a part of where he grew up. 


‘Andifun'be’, which features fellow Xhosa rapper Soul T iDyan, is laced with raw Xhosa rap cadences. ‘Mpumelelo’ is the first track where emotions are expressed. The hook keeps asking where success is. The emotions continue into the next track 'Umthandazo'. Uyihlo and Orish murder their parts respectively on 'Izinto' and 'Trenches' wrapping up what is a fire mixtape from the DJ and rapper duo.
