Blxckie

Blxckie is Lucasraps’ tag-team partner, and, together, they are gunning for the prestigious intercontinental championship. His charismatic flow and abilities to produce and sing, set him apart. Dr Peppa’s drill-leaning “Bambelela” saw Blxckie deliver a standout verse, alongside established acts Cassper Nyovest and Focalistic. Somnyama, as he is affectionately known, represents the growing Durban new wave rap scene that has been bubbling under in the last two years. The rapper has laid the foundation and is expected to go up, like he declares in his single “Uppity” released in December 2020.
