Dice MaK+MRC+SUBROCC - Chopper get it here
and from all digital music streaming platforms.
Boom-bap rap is alive and doing pretty well. Sunday 10 June 2018 we caught up with Dice Mak and talked about his current hit single "Chopper", produced by Subrocc and Mr C. First of all, big up to Subrocc, the mastermind behind the inspirational, futuristic album art. 2018 seems to be a great year for Hip-Hop as far as new quality music is concerned. "Chopper", however, places Dice Mak in a league of his own where he is the Kingest Unfuxwittable Dude in the Universe (K.U.D.U), as he calls himself. The beat is based in an old school boom-bap drum loop with complex snare rolls, massive double kicks, simple hat, a chime and very moving rhythmic baseline. A lone digital piano suspends everything else in an imaginary space... while the beat calls your attention and emotions away to some futuristic place where boom-bap is a way of life. Subrocc did what we know him for, justice on the beats, but this time with a qfuturistic approach. He depicts this in the album art too with a metallic gold arm and spinning vinyl theme. 'Rocky' means serious business as a producer and hip-hop DJ, and he is a blessing to the culture. Competitive athleticism seems to run deep in his bone marrow. The beat is as fresh as a neophyte, and you find your head and body rocking unconsciously in a harmonious rhythm in appreciation of such a great cut.
Dice almost immediately launches into bars that show great care and craft, telling us why today is a beautiful day to f**k shit up. He intelligently codes messages and warnings for anyone trying to test his silent persona and how those are dealt with in the world of Dice Makgothi. Lines like " ...why you act like king when you're a customer?..." are an example. Skilled pro that he is, he makes the character incredibly believable, and he listener is captivated by the various scenes he describes. From hustling and making ends meet to settling things for much lesser. This jam was purely masterminded by Subrocc, as Dice has said while expressing his gratitude to Subrocc in a live telephone interview. "Pressure don't burst pipes, pipes burst pressure". Consider yourselves warned folks. This song is going down as one of the classics in SA Rap history.
