Kwesta is newbie MC from Johannesburg with tight party rhymes you’d mistake for New York City mainstream radio. Having built a career from scratch beginning in a makeshift studio in his parents’ house in 2003, 24-year-old Kwesta has been steadily rising the ranks of SA hip-hop dropping demos and singles, earning him a rep for being one of the country’s most promising young acts. In 2010 he saw his name in lights when he took part in “Everywhere You Go,” the SA World Cup anthem featuring Kelly Rowland and 2face, and he’s been climbing upward ever since.
His new album Special Rekwest is filled with dirty dance beats and positive rhymes, mostly about tha ladies. Here’s his single, “Flava/Flash It.”
