NEW MUSIC: Okmalumkoolkat - “iJusi”.

An experimental rapper with an afrofuturist edge, it’s hard to not pay attention to anything South African artist Okmalumkoolkat does.

In the latest dark pink-tinted bi-coastal music video for iJusi, a single featured on hist recently released Holy Oxygen EP, the KZN rapper gives a nod to the late Pan-African icon Chinua Achebe and pioneering painter Jean-Michel Basquiat, whilst giving us alternating views of trippy scenes shot in Vienna and Johannesburg, and delivers a series of dope lines you’re sure to find yourself quoting before the end of the song (“boss talk, no Hugo).

“iJusi means juice in Zulu,” Okmalumkoolkat explains, “As in I got the shining, I am the blessed one.” He also mentions that the song’s intent was “to show flair like Basquiat’s brushstrokes, every bar is a stroke of genius. The poems are informative if you really listen. Just so you all know who has the shining. I feel like in terms of being one with oneself, I am the closest in the continent and in the world’s amongst spoken word messengers.”
