You don’t necessarily need to be hip-hop to fall in love with this particular track, just be a fan of great music.You need to be a lover and not a fighter, if you are to add this jam to your playlist.Good heavens, I got the favour to review this -Iam talking Mob X feat Sister Flame – Real Love.
To begin with,the beat deserves a hall of fame induction.Whoever made it is an excellent beat craftman.If you are a hip-hop day-one you can feel the Dr Dre vibe on it. Oh yeah, Iam talking about Carlifonia Love. The beatsmith mixed other ochestral arrangements to make the song sound something new.In a recent interview he did with StarFm the rapper Mob X revealed that as of his sounds, he want to bring the old school in the new school. Well, it’s the early 90’s meet the Y2K sound.
Now moving on to the part everyone has been falling in love, the chorus just got the whole media buzzing.Wait, Sister Flame is back?And when did you hear her on the booth?What a voice!Is that her own version of Mary J.Blidge’s Real Love?With all due respect that’s heavenly, and it’s been long since we had something like that in ZimHipHop.Matter of fact,there has been none like that.
Now, what is she saying that lures our attention? She loves someone who will love her for who she is, and out of passion the songstress is expressing her gratitude to the man above, “Thank God I found some real love”.She is pouring her heart out, with undertones of affection.Who can reject such an amazing and powerful RnB voice?Nobody, and judging from this chorus of the song, Sister Flame is back to make history again.
And on to the rap,I have never heard a lot of that lately in our local scenes. Authentic, relatable and completely no fantasy , my observations.As hip-hop fans we are used to hear rappers talking about buying their loved ones the whole world, unfortunately Mob is not like that.The King of Bantu,as he crowns himself, goes honest on the track .The whole three Straight Up Cypherical verses, a lot like Follow The Leader, has a psalmist effect and shows a great deal of poetry.Chagrin of his pride, any person who likes hip-hop will be physically compelled to stop at whatever he is doing so as to attention. Honestly, rap is not always this polite to women.
X took us through three verses proving that he is a real lover and a perfect match of what Sister Flame is looking for. You can not deny that X is a street personality, literally known as a hustler,after lines like this, ‘Ndichamurder ndichipanda hope handiitire muzanda”.This is an expression of deep sacrifice,the Malcon X type of by any means necessary.From lines like ,’Paka.masteady Iam your dad”, to the vows every girl desires ,”..handikutizise uri ten dzinotsika”,in reference to cattle paid as lobola,the verses are just proper and practical. This is the kind of a song needed at the moment in a world where boys are painted as “players” and ladies as “not loyal “.
And fans probably can not go wrong with such a great song.Giving your fans good music is the best way they get their days off to a good start.This track really has a valentine aura around it, and thank Mob, it was released on Valentine’Day too – coincidence.Anyway, if you are carried away by this single, do not forget that we still got a lot to enjoy.The rapper is releasing an album this coming winter tittled Central African Time, – oh yeah it leaves a lot to be desired ,just keep your ears open to the proverbial streets. And if you love this track, continue to vote for it on our local radio charts.

3rd world is the second single to Mobx debut EP C A T Central Africa Time.
It features Yung G a talented rapper/artist from the growing town of Bindura. On This track X talks about the realities, experiences and situations in 3rd world countries. From corruption, politics and religion, X touches sensitive issues which most 3rd world rappers never dare to touch.
He starts the second verse with the lines “Prophet and politicians, leaders abuse positions/street filled with poison, the poor playing the victim/System failed my sisters, p***y their prime hustle……/”You will most definitely relate to the stories and situations if u live in a 3rd world country.
The song starts off with a Bob Marley interview which he talks about being a Rasta. The first verse is in venerc and X portrays a picture of a washed out rapper stranded in the ghetto addicted to substances reminiscing about the past. Yung G is on the hook which he executed in Jamaican and dancehall accent. The beat is something you never heard with African drums and congas, combined with hard synths. It’s definitely something else. Credit goes to Vito who is a beast on beats you can clearly tell that this producer is a cut above the rest and he knows his thing.
3rd world which is set to be released digitally on the 18th of April the independence day of Zimbabwe. It will give you some food for thought. It’s not your usual hip-hop song. MobX truly defines the term RAP which means Rebel Art Poetry.

MobXTheDon one half of mob-figgaz is going solo for the first time in 10 years on a EP titled Central Africa Time.
Rapping alongside his brother MobG for the past 10 years , X has decided to flip the script and give a side he has never offered. Central Africa Time is an EP which speaks about growing up in the toughest time zone, the day to day of a person in a 3rd world country.
The majority of hip-hop coming out of Zimbabwe reflects nothing on the society. CAT has that edge that Rebel Art Poetry that drives hip-hop with honesty hard hitting lyrics full of fresh and original beats.Central Africa Time is something 'mos def' to look forward to. We started recording CAT on the 1st of December 2015, it was supposed to be released on the 29th of February 2016 but we failed to meet the date. CATs official single Real love featuring Sister Flame produced by Vito, Cutty Beats and MobX was released on Valentines day went on to be a huge success making it in the Power Fm daily top ten chart show peaking at number 4 and is currently on the future hits on Star FM and Zifm. Dates when the EP is dropping are not yet official but its mos def within the 1st half of the year. The reason of the delays and features on the projects will be on CAT UPDATE 2 hopefully the track listing and the EP will be done.

The grind never sleeps, halfway through 2015 - The DonKing MixTape (AfterMath)
Since we released DK MixTape we just been trying to keep & get our names out there, from launching the MixTape on our home ground (Southerton) @ClubRed32 to a ZBC Tv Interveiw on Zim HipHop Report Show & now getting Radio Play on Local Radio Stations on some of our new material & not forgetting hosting a couple of shows around our neighborhood - Southerton .
After launching our mix tape, we prioritized performances mostly with the aim of pushing DonKing & making some appearances at some local hip-hop shows around the city like Changamire Hip-hop Festival & Can You Kick It to network with other artists & distribute DK copies for free. One of our friend & fellow Rapper - Savage finally released his album Jungle Fever & at the launch we performed a couple of DonKing tracks & also distributed a number of DK CDs for free. To gain exposure & communicate with the public & our fan base, we started an initiative called Burger Weekend which happened every weekend on our block whereby we sell Burgers & Sausages & give out free DonKing Cds.
We even brought back the Marathon Mic Session - Friday Nite Live in Southerton @ClubRed32 & it went down for Two Friday Nights in a row but we had to cancel it due to creative differences with the Club & Venue owner.
We teamed up again with one of our colleague - Zarzu to host the 1st ever Mob-Figgaz Block Concert in our neighborhood Southerton, were we had an Open Mic Session with local fans & other fellow artists like Vito, Cuttybeats, Slay Yung & Ulenni.
