You know, quite often we get sent new music and as much as you just want to give everybody a chance, it’s difficult to know who is and isn’t the real deal. I mean, everybody hypes themselves up as “the next big thing” but in reality only about 30% of the music you are sent lives up to this billing.But then, once in a while, you hear a rapper spitting bars on a track and you think to yourself “Hang on, this kid has got some potential”. That’s how I felt when I heard Bret Rammz for the first time.The young spitter from Bulawayo relocated to Johannesburg 4 years ago and he admits that he’s been hustling like a beast ever since then.
It’s working out for him too; Bret will be opening up for “We Up” star, Emtee at an upcoming gig.One particular track that caught the eye is his Ndebele/English fusion, “Ngapakathi”. The beat definitely warms to the ear, but there’s something about this kid’s flow that really makes him endearing to listeners.So let’s leave it up to you: if you were a music critic, what advice would you give to the boy Bret Rammz? Does he have the potential to make it?.
