By Posted in - featured & Interviews & Music & News & Photos & Videos on July 3rd, 2015 0 Comments Visual Vrydag

“The plan is to drop videos every Friday for a while until we say STOP!”

#VisualVrydag

For those who have been down with the Y?GEN since day 1 you may recall back in 2012 we ran a video campaign called ‘Visual Vrydag’ where we shot viral videos & released it every Friday for a month. Recently I’ve had problems with TV networks trying to sideline my SALUTAS video, our plan this year is for national airplay since the internet has been our main form of exposure but these suits are making it increasingly harder for any new guys to enter their lil friend circle. On that note we’ve decided to go back to our gully roots & bring back ‘Visual Vrydag’ for 2015!

OWN 2015

For the first installment of YoungstaCpt’s video campaign called ‘Visual Vrydag’ he drops a simple yet effective video, black backdrop creating the floating head and hands look with no body. In the end its’ straight ignorant flossing paying homage to his so called ‘Young Thug impression’. Could he OWN 2015 with this viral video approach??? Only time will tell.

SALUTAS

The TV has finally latched on and premiered Youngsta’s SALUTAS music video via their networks, 19 July 2015 saw the Y?GEN dropping the long awaited official music video for SALUTAS. With notable cameos from some of Cape Town’s finest, a close attention-to-detail focus on the visuals, it promises to raise the standard of what we’ve come to expect from YoungstaCpt, Y?GEN & Cape Town Hip Hop.

SA HIP HOP INDUSTRY

“If you’ve payed any attention to the SA music industry you’ll notice some artists have taken it upon themselves to write open letters to the game (Kwesta, TUMI​ etc.), I’ve seen that this can be beneficial in getting a certain message across that cannot be expressed in the music being that it’s more personal. What I’ve decided to do is put my open letter in music video form & release it. Coming off the SALUTAS video hype, today’s #VisualVrydag is very different. I’ve released a video & a song you’ve NEVER heard before. I’ll address the SA Hip Hop industry from a young colored Cape Townian rappers’ point of view. WARNING, this will offend the squeamish but it’s 2015, not 1993! It’s bout time to wake that ass up!”

LET ME BE GREAT

“Tumi said we were almost great, yet many mortals are claiming to be Gods. Instead of labeling ourselves with such a title lets aim for greatness instead, lets be the best versions of our human selves that we could possibly be. This song is about us striving for excellence in the face of adversity, so let me be great. Let us be great.”

BUMP THE CHEESE UP (KAAPSTAD REMIX)

VISUAL VRYDAG_10 JULY-2 copy

Aside from the Visual Vrydag releases, YoungstaCPT has managed to record some new material in the process and one such example is #BTCU KAAPSTAD remix. While performing @ a KOL gig in JHB Youngsta was asked by Reason to drop an unreleased verse he had written for the song in 2013. The crowd was instantly captivated and so it was suggested that an official solo remix be made. Few days later Youngsta met up with Instro at the Kool Out Studios and the rest is history as they say.
