The Kulture is back with a brand new album. The Cape Town rapper’s latest project, The Boy Who Thought He Could Fly, distinctly plots the course for his continued pursuit of success.
Behind the apt album title, The Kulture succeeds in showcasing a diverse range of styles – the offering filled to the brim with hip-hop subgenres, featuring drill, trap, mumble rap and pop rap.
Moving through a variety of themes including self belief, as demonstrated on the hard hitting opening track, “Shine”, as well as “Samsara” and “Dance on his Enemies”. Other themes explored are a celebration of love and identity as highlighted on, “Nx Prxblmz”, and “We$tide $uperman”. The subjects addressed are clearly influenced by The Kulture’s day to day life and the communities that have shamed him. He tackles everyday struggles such as racial identity and socio-economic inequality with passion and an aim to help make a difference, “After I save the world, can I still be your hero?” he asks on the prolific “Someday”.
The Boy Who Thought He Could Fly is a melting pot of sounds and a coming together of many different artists to boot – with collaborative highlights including “Hai Wena” which features Apr12th and Micky Mack, and “Backstroke” with local production guru, Shaney Jay and GREEK.
