YoungstaCPT is by far one of the realest, honest, and conscious rappers in the game today, hands down.
The rapper from Cape Town has been cosigned by almost every other established rapper in the country; from AKA, Cassper Nyovest, Kwesta, Riky Rick, Nasty C, Stogie T, the list goes on and on.
Despite all that, the award-winning rapper has always maintained to be as humbled as he can be, never blowing his own horn but making sure that his voice is heard through his music.
Speaking of his music, his debut studio album dubbed ‘3T’ a synonym for Things Take Time that was released two years ago was already considered a classic hip hop body of work before he reminded us today.
The ‘3T’ studio album has records that still make sense today despite being released a few years ago.

It’s inevitable that all of those records on the project will be relevant in the next 100 years, probably more, YoungstaCPT is way ahead of his time, and he knows it.
In two years-time, YoungstaCPT hasn’t released any other project thus far because he believed in his project that took him a couple of years to finish.
He’s still releasing visuals for the records inside the project to this day.
Just to mention a few of the visuals he has released from the ‘3T’ studio album; he has released ‘Just Be Lekker’, ‘Old Kaapie’, ‘To Live and Die in CA’, his recent offering ‘Kleuring’, without forgetting the powerful ‘For Colored Girls’ record.
For the first time in a long time, YoungstaCPT talked about his studio album being a classic project and nobody can dispute that, absolutely nobody at all.
“Released this album 2 years ago and haven’t released anything since…
I’m still pushing videos for it and the messages are still relevant.
That’s how I know it’s classic…It’s a testament THINGS TAK3 TIME ” he shared on social media.

Back in 2019, YoungstaCPT who thought that Nadia Nakai will triumph over him to win the coveted ‘SA Hip Hop Award for Album of the Year’ went ahead to win the award becoming the third artiste from Cape Town to win the award.
Prior to him winning the coveted SAHHA, DJ Ready D, and EmileYX were the first entertainers to have won the award.
YoungstaCPT alias Youngsta Kaapstad has been representing Cape Town from day one and from the looks of it, he is stopping anytime soon.
He got the love of CPT behind him, and he loves his city right back with the same energy.
