Lolli q's DSO for upcoming album
If you thought you were hustling then you haven’t met ‘DSO’ the Delft South Originals. These boys put a new definition to the word hustle. DSO is made up by two artists Rhee-bo and Manity, two guys who have dedicated themselves in putting Delft on the hip-hop map. Their hardcore rhymes, punch lines and stage presents makes it hard for you not to take note.
I met up with the Originals in Delft South at Rhee-bo’s home where most of what you hear on disc is cooked. I met with Rhee-bo at 1st Mango Street five minutes away from his house. It was clear to me on the way to his that these guys work is appreciated from the love he was getting on the street. On arrival we found Manity hard at work with a new track for the coming album. We were there to find out the what, where, why and how for the Cape Town street mag readers. Yes its true DSO is releasing a new album called “Mguvela’s era Reloaded” however the number of tracks are still unconfirmed. Six tracks are already finished with just a couple more to go, promoting and working on the long awaited album.
This however is not their 1st album but their 1st album as a duet Rhee-bo and Manity .the crew started with 11 members under the name “Kirstin Production” in 2003. A year later their experience their first brake which left them with five members, the five changed their name to DSO. After many successes 3 members later dropped out, one notable act missing is Loosekop who sacrificed hip-hop for theatre but still supports DSO. The guys have proved why they are the last two standing by taking over the Delft hip-hop scene, being one of the most relevant crews in Cape Town Delf area.
The duo later this year, are planning to release but still feel its too early to say when exactly” Mguvela’s era reloaded is set to bring a new era in Cape Town scene and. the Originals are just ready for Mzantsi as a whole, they ready to showcase their talents to the country. With tracks like “Manga manga and Libambe linga shoni” South Africa has no choice but to take note. The album is featuring local producers, the energetic Drie maanskaap and the soulful Mel J.DSO are no strangers to the big stage, having performed in the Splash Jam in JHB, Hip-hop Kaslum in CPT and the Arts Festival in Grahams town(ECT).All that experience is visible in Mguvela’s era reloaded. A video for “Libame linga shoni” was done this month, the video is aimed to promote the album and put faces to the voices. Some might have heard of DSO but has never seen these “young bloods” live, this will be your chance to see these youngones come up with something great!.
DSO promises Cape Town a “hot” album and we as CPT Street mag are expecting anything less. From humble beginnings this duo never forgets where they come from. when they not in studio working hard on they coming album DSO inspires aspiring artists from Delft to follow their dreams, organizing free shows and providing free recordings. The group is also part of the Rainbow arts organization indulging in drama, dance and music. we salute them for not forgetting their roots. The game is for changing but Rhee-bo still believes Papoose is one artist still keeping it real and locally he’s loving Drie maanskaap. Manity was very reluctant to reveal that information with fear of his fans mistaking that artist for his role model “however in terms hustling I salute Jack Parow” said Manity with a big smile. DSO has earned street cred by hard work,as the about to unleash the Mguvelas era reloaded here at CPT street mag we wish them good luck and hope South Africa will show some love and respect purchasing the album when released.
