    Been bumping this album heavily since it dropped. One of my favourite things about it are the South Africans on here, amazing to see them get such global exposure. I don't listen too much local music tbh, besides for Sjava and a few others, so I was really impressed with what i heard on here. Anyways, here's my rankings.

    Sjava
    As i said, I've been listening to Sjava for a while (been trying to get my isiZulu up to speed). he's incredibly talented and he absolutely murdered his feature on Seasons. I would love to see him work more with TDE, there's a lot of potential for good music there. Even a collab with Anderson Paak or someone similar would be cool.

    Yungen Blakrok
    Never heard of her before but I was blown away by her verse. I mean she managed to not only hold her own alongside Kendrick and Vince but i honestly think she had one of the best verses on the entire album. Wordplay, flow, everything on point. I'll definitley be looking out for more from her in the future

    Saudi
    I've heard of Saudi before, don't think I've heard any of his music though. This is pretty typical of most SA kwaito/hip hop these days - mixed language, drowned in autotune. Not a bad feature but probably could have done without him.

    Babes Wodumo
    Babes Wodumo has been all over radio, tv, clubs, bars all across Johannesburg for a while now. I can't lie, I'm not really a fan. Her music is definitely more kwaito/Afro-pop than hip hop/rap. Sounded kinda cringy to me on Redemption, but i guess that might just be me.

    Thoughts?
