Hip Hop Artist/Activist Zubz The Last Letta has released a second single from his upcoming album, DragonLion FullCircle.
On July 24th of this year, Zubz released the first track from his fourth studio project; Extras. Hot on the heels of that release is his second single Stereotypes.
Produced and mixed by Zimbabwean music composer/singer/songwriter Simba Tagz, Stereotypes is a percussive celebration of all who rise above the limits ascribed to them by society. Punctuated by horn blasts and open snares, the track immediately conjures mental images of a marching band at a winners’ parade.
“This song is literally a toast” says Zubz, “to all who took every negative stereotype attached to their person or circumstance and turned it around to become so much more!” Lyrically the song’s powerful messaging is divided into Male (verse 1) and Female (verse 2).
Zubz debuted Stereotypes on South Africa’s biggest youth radio station, YFM, on Friday 14 September and immediately made the song available shortly after for free download. Says the artist, “YFM as a platform represented for me a place where I learnt that there were people just like me who were doing extraordinary things in my own town! It made me want to rise above my circumstance too. So I had to start sharing that message on the same platform I learnt it from.”
Stereotypes is only the second of many more songs that are pegged for release off the new Zubz album DragonLion_FullCircle.
