South African based,Zimbabwean R 'n B sensation Hillzy has a new video out for a song simply titled muroora.The song touches on how the right girl will have you rethinking lost love & broken hearts because her love is too good for passing flings plus it's packaged in a way that makes you think Bae is the one you walking down the altar with.The video itself was directed by K Mane & Nick and it alternates between Hillzy with his would be bride chilling in a beautiful forest to scenes of him painting said bride until it closes off with Hillzy's mum & relatives all teary eyed as he walks down the aisle with the love of his life.

Team Legacy's Preezo taking ZimHipHop to the streets one show at a time

Shows for rappers in Zimbabwe are hard to come by and when they do local rappers are relegated to footnotes ahead of other "more profitable genres" like Dancehall and Sungura.Taona Matsvai aka Preezo is one local promoter working hard to change that particular matrix under his Team Legacy imprint.Preezo says he fell in love with local HipHop when he was 12 and he would make cameo appearances in Jnr Brown,Discord videos.

As he came of age rather than take up rap like many of his peers he decided events management would be a better alternative and if his Promoter Of the year award at the 2016 ZHHA is anything to go by that decision seems to be paying of.He is best known for his Street HipHop tours which give upcoming artists a chance to rub shoulders with established rappers and to also perform in front of crowds in different parts of the city.Since the shows are usually free and rotate locations they also tend to introduce local HipHop to people who might not have been aware of the genre.

Jnr Brown,Mc Chita,Ammara Brown,Gze among others have been a staple at these shows which have been held in places like Highfield,Mufakose,Mabvuku,Norton,Glen Norah,Dzivarasekwa.Preezo has also dabbled in rap battles with ten rap battles under his belt thus far.

The ever industrious promoter scored a win as he was recently chosen to incorporate HipHop in the 2017 Harare Carnival Festivities.He did a build up show which I was lucky enough to attend and organized more shows that will be part of the official Carnival activities.

His dream is to take the Street HipHop tours to other areas of the country and to convert one soul at a time to ZimHipHop amid scepticism and ignorance by giving dope rappers (known and unknown) a platform to put up polished performances.

#TimelessBeatsThursdays Tehn Diamond - The year before Rap

The year was 2013 and one of Zim HipHop's greatest collaborative efforts The Feeling ai'nt fair had dropped.Tehn Diamond was an integral part of that process alongside Jnr Brown and Take Fizzo and he decided to cap that with an introspective,bar heavy joint on what life was like the year before rap.The song would get an official video some years later but it was already a staple for local rap fans because of the honest bars and candid nature in which Tehn delivered them.
