In a world were corruption and nepotism is rife it’s really very challenging to have those deserving to get their dues. This is what The Shoemaker talks about in his new single These Ni***s. In this song he talks about the Zimbabwe Hip Hop Awards being Harare Awards and not bout the country, radio dj’s requesting payola for airplay, promoters using nepotism for artists to perform on their shows to mention a few.
For those not in the know, The Shoemaker is a Victoria Falls rapper who has managed to turn heads in South Africa and beyond. In 2019 he managed to get nationwide interviews on radio and undoubtedly dropped the best freestyle on Khulumani FM‘s Hip Hop Radio show called RapLab. His music videos made news literally on Zimbabwe’s main News bulletin ZTV as they were featured on there. He would go on to be nominated as the best new comer for 2019 at the Zimbabwe Hip hop Awards. The Shoemaker definitely had a great 2019 and with such a grand entrance in 2020 we can only imagine what the year will be like for him.
[UPDATE] Finally the video is out, shot by Blaqstone somewhere in Bulawayo. The Shoemaker is seen spewing his guts on the track lyrically of course as he makes a statement and let’s his opinion be known. Now you can put the face to the BARS and vibe with the visual. Let us know what you think about These Ni***s in the comments section below.
