Ambitiouz Entertainment like a potato on fire, trapper Emtee has once again redeemed himself with his latest offering Johustleburg! The highly anticipated single dropped on Friday and it is been making waves throughout social media, writes Thanduxolo Zwane!fter dumping
Kindly hit play on Johustleburg while you enjoying the read:
His former childish and bitter record label could not harbor their feelings when they blatantly called out rapper L-Tido for showing his support to the young rapper.
Johustleburg is one of the massive songs to emerge from Emtee Records after he dropped Wave, Brand New Day, and In Tha Rain.
Singing Johustleburg, the rapper turned CEO is amazingly composed and light in his delivery when it comes to lyrics, although the lyrical content is much heavier as he records the full hustle spirit of Johannesburg.
Produced by his old-time producer Ruff, Emtee starts the song off with a hook that encapsulates the mindset of Joburg which is hustling through the bright city lights none stop day and night never tiring or resting for anything which has taught him a lot, which is visible from the hook as well as expressing his love for the City of Gold.
Emtee’s verses sum up his experiences in ‘Jozi’ (Slang for Johannesburg) before and after the fame respectively. The first verse serves is a walk down memory lane for the artist as he talks about his come up and all that he had to do on his way up as well as the consequences of fame and his longing for simpler times before he became the star that he is today “I miss them days…life is not the same old friends act strange…”
Johustleburg’s second verse switches up as he updates us on the lifestyle he is currently living on the lavish side of the hustle and the benefits that come with it, but it isn’t all greener pastures and celebrations on the other side of fame as he mentions the sacrifices required to maintain the standard and elevate above the level he is currently on which leaves him with no time on his hands as he has to work even harder now that he is successful.
All in all, Johustleburg is a neatly wrapped story that one can still jam to and the pre-chorus bridge is sure to be a fan favorite on the account of how wavy it is even though it serves as a warning, the first time around being a threat to anyone trying to play him and the second time around he adds variations to it cautioning those who love flashing material things and women too much of what may result from that lifestyle.
Johustleburg is receiving huge support from the locals and is the perfect answer to those who were questioning his musical abilities.
The ditty is a resounding big yes without any doubt and he has shown immense growth as an individual and artistically audible throughout every soundwave.
