Hip Hop From Abroad – This is Cryptkeeper


South African born Hip Hop artist Crytpkeeper releases the debut single off his second Hip Hop project ‘Bete Noire’, the hook driven Trap Rap track ‘Something Outta Nothin’. The single hits all Radio Stations Nationwide 17 January 2017. This is the first single off his brand new album, following the success of his previous 2015 MixTape ‘Mind The Hill’.

 

When it comes to an iron clad dedication to his craft, his music and his incessant desire to learn more, self taught / self made Hip Hop artist Cryptkeeper is a one of a kind entrepreneurial artist – always pushing the boundaries of his musical goals and achievements and paving a path for himself in an industry that is tough with competitors.

 

Tshepo Mogase, (Crytpkeeper) worked with some heavyweights on this new track – produced By Co Kayn Beats, a producer responsible for working with big name Hip Hop acts the likes of Ricky Rick, Stoogi T, B3nchmarq & more, mixed By Inyambo “Nyambz” Imenda of Studio Next Door and finally mastered internationally by Andre Gonsalves Of ADGMastering, Toronto Canada. Cryptkeeper has spared no cost to produce the best results.

 

‘Something Outta Nothin’ is a rap brag song. Cryptkeeper says – “The track is basically a typical rap brag song (about my life and how I believe I am better than the rest, with a bit of fiction here and there”, he laughs. The single is inspired by the new direction Hip Hop has been heading over the last year or so. “The only songs that get decent airplay these days are “Trap”. I decided to do one with my particular flair”, he says.

 

All Cryptkeeper’s songs are personal and driven by his own life story. No one can tell the story better than he can and this feeds his passion and hunger to feed the masses and make a mark with his musical skills.

 

‘Something Outta Nothin’ is taken off the brand new album ‘Bete Noire’. This album is the second Full Length Cryptkeeper Project – his previous one being the 2015 released ‘Mind The Hill’ which featured the singles ‘Will You Be There?’ and ‘Raise The Flag Up,’ both which had extensive radio play on prominent stations in South Africa.

 

‘Bete Noire’ is an English idiom for something strongly detested and in French literally translates to “Black Beast.” Most of the songs off this new album revolve around highlighting social injustices. Some tracks also deal with Cryptkeeper’s own persona as an artist and whether he is the hero of the story or just another villain.

 

What can we expect from the album? “Good music, a couple of feel good songs, some songs penned solely to adjust the listeners moral compass, new school, trap a bit of boom bap and a lot of entertainment” says Crytpkeeper.

 

Crypt Keeper’s rapping style is inspired by 2Pac, Nas, Cage, Eminem, Talib Kweli and Lupe Fiasco. It applies complex rhyme schemes, syncopation, clear enunciation, infused with humor. Tshepo’s Musical Style incorporates conscious rap with a commercial appeal, piano driven hip-hop / trap tracks with a touch of pop rock influence.
