On Hate Speech, The Realist deliver bone crushing basslines with ruthless urban lyrics as easily as they drift into inner city turmoil and emotive soundscapes and then round it all off with the humorous, filthy and edgy ‘The Ass Track’.
The recent attention been given to South African Hip Hop is not in vane with artists like ‘The Realist’ emerge, bridging gaps between Electronica and Hip Hop. Hate Speech also features guest appearances by Gambino and Ben Sharpa who also featured on Milanese album ‘Lockout’. The EP is being released as both a vocal and an all instrumental version.
