EDITORS’ NOTES

Teenage musings of a rap life gone right sound believable on The Big Hash’s second effort, a combination of speaker-shattering 808s and flows so varied they may as well have a life of their own. The Pretoria-bred emcee’s EP Life + Times of a Teenage Influence doesn’t disappoint; his polished flow demonstrates the discipline required from a scholar versed in the city’s longstanding tradition as a warehouse where Mzansi’s most outstanding rap scholars are trained. Hash’s story is that of a young man coming to terms with the post-parental fallout resulting from his decision to quit school and focus on his career. With burners like album opener “I Don’t” and the sun-kissed “Anita,” Hash's mother won’t doubt her son's choice for long.
