Rapper St. Maxi Myne (real name Maxmillian Kasozi), whose Men In Suits song won Best Music In Feature Film at the New Vision Film Awards, has released another song, which he hopes will scoop many awards in both the music and film industries.
Talking to The Kampala Sun about the new song called Kawagga, Myne said it is meant to remind the newcomers in the hip hop game that old school music can still work in this generation.
“I want to show the new generation that old school can still work even in our generation and to redirect them on how to do original work,” he said.
Kawagga is a mix of old school rap and new beats. It carries a lot of lateral and internal rhymes that make Myne sound like GNL Zamba.
It’s hard to find rappers not igniting beef among themselves and Mayne is no different. In the song’s verse, he says: “When I rap, other rappers get a headache.”
On the poster of the song, he warns “Parental advisory – explicit content,” to label his competitors as young.
Mayne’s popular flows are in his songs such as Kukunku freestyle series, Fine Woman, Taata, Lemerako, and the remix of Ykee Benda’s Bomboclat.
In Kawagga, he features MC Jackson, who backs him up to create sweet background roars and shout-outs.
