Raplyf Records rapper, Kid X gives us a glimpse of what to expect in his soon-to-be-released album as he drops “Plaak”, one of the songs off the album.
This song comes as a successor to Kid X‘s feature on Amahloni alongside Tweezy, Makwa, and Zingah last month and we dare say it is a worthy successor.
Award winning rapper, Bonginkosi Mahlangu known in music circles as Kid X is a south African rapper and performer. After storming the music industry with three consecutive number one hits on YFM’s Hot 9 Hip-Hop chart, Kid X was recommended by Teargas’ K.O. to Smashis during the formation of Cashtime Fam.
Cashtime Fam consisted of three members, AB Crazy, Smashis and Kid X and the trio took sometime to cement. But after the release of their hit single “Goodbye”, initial stutters were put in the past and the trio had 2011 hip-hop chart-topper in the bag.
In 2012, however, their musical journey to greater heights was derailed by the departure of rapper, vocalist and producer AB Crazy.
Although, KiD X and Smashis tried to keep the Cashtime dream even earning a Channel O award, KiD X made a name for himself outside of the group with several features including the 2012 hit single “BoomShakaLaka” with Kwesta.
Cashtime Fam soon embarked on a tour with Kwesta, the duo also released a 16 track mixtape and landed several features and awards.
In 2014, Cashtime Fam however disbanded and both artistes Smashis & KiD X, launched their solo careers. KiD X continued work with his mentor, Teargas K.O on a single “Cara Cara”, which was a huge hit.
Over the years, KiD X has had several hit singles including “Aunty”, “Se7en”, “Thanx”and most anticipated South African single, “Pass n’ Special”. The ace rapper has also worked with notable artistes like ChianoSky, Kwesta and lots more. He brings to bear his full talent on this and you should listen right away.
