EP REVIEW: Boi Mac – Gang Ka4

A traditional street rap project that comprises hardcore gangsterism and the modern day drill.

Gang Ka4 is a well-calibrated continuation of trap rap sound the Swisha Gang front man has been honing over the last few years. It is one of the most impressive runs by any rapper we’ve seen in the genre lately. Like always, his music scans unquestionably gangster rap  and is accompanied by wavy productions from a variety of beatsmakers that include Young Nash, SwayTh3rd, Carloo,Jay_Forty5 and Leanxbeatx.

Thematically, the EP is built on the random day-to-day issues that happens in the street life or bando. Boi Mac wears different personalities as he tries to interpret it.Most of the times,  he’s trapped out and boasting, informing naysayers of his credentialed “realities “, in every song.

The EP is a sustained and triumphant outpouring and Boi Mac gives every good, bad and ugly thing he has.It is rooted strongly in that thug tradition of blunt-force honesty,  and all of his songs emerges straight from the gut. He’s either bragging about his flashy apparel in Designer,  or calling out Takura with lyrics like;

Takura wakura but your sh*t is gabbage…

At times he’s threatening to expose some people , who assumably have fake street credibility in Ndovaudza, whereas in Tsvarakadenga he’s singing for his “wife.”

Throughout Gang Ka4 he trades in cinema verite’ pragmatism and doubles down on graphic realism, mincing no words. I hope this goes without saying we’re overlooking all the guest artists who graced the project with stellar contributions, even to GXGVX who’s standout for jocking Fetty Wap’s style of rapping.

Overall the EP is one of the best project Boi Mac has under his name.It pushes his sound forward while he continues to stretch himself as an MC and songwriter with no signs of slowing down for anything.We strongly recommend with the belief that it will define who he is to the game.

Standout tracks:

  • Regular,
  • Eternally and
  • Vavengi.
