We are not arbiters on the subject of good music, but….we come really close (LOL), and so you should just stop trying to resist and listen to who we are putting you on, And as always, we do not subscribe to celebrity culture, so you can be sure that most of these songs actually slap.
With that being said and also for a myriad of reasons, T. ShoC should be one of the voices in your speaker and ear right now. He is one man with no regard for genre boundaries, although he is rooted in rap, most of his songs are a fusion of local and international sounds, and each and every song of his transcends beyond the Hip Hop sphere.
For example, the song “Lemons & Guavas” dabbles on the Pop-side with its groovy pop-production, while songs like “All We Know” and “Baba Don’t Dance” are on that Reggae tip.
T.ShoC’s permutation abilities really come out in that latter song, which is also glazed with Afro Pop elements (which are also perceivable in “Mujaho/24” – an Unapologetically Zimbo ode). If an audience is crucial for the endurance of a career in the music industry, why stop at one audience, right?
T. ShoC seems to appreciate that playing it safe in this Soundcloud era will not be sufficient, and hopefully, it is this inhibition-breaking attitude that’ll secure him a spot in Zimbabwe’s musical future. He is a peculiar thread that ought to woven into Zimbabwe’s intricate musical cape – this is a rapper that uses Falsetto for crying out loud!
Most importantly, T. ShoC’s strength lies in his style of rap, he doesn’t just piece together random sentences that leave the listener confused and regretting having spent 4 minutes of their precious time on a song. He actually tells stories and most of his songs have meaning – now that’s a rarity.
