YoungstaCPT drops the visuals for ‘Live And Die in CA’ off 3T 0

It’s safe to say that YoungstaCPT is rap’s very own Dan Plato because of how he has been representing Cape Town like no any other rapper has done before and probably there won’t be any other rapper representing Cape Town the way YoungstaCPT is representing the capital city of South Africa.

In 2019 alone, YoungstaCPT gave us his new highly anticipated debut album 3T(Things Take Time) and finally got to work with the Supa Mega, AKA, and we opened up his shop in Cape Town, giving back to the community, his community, there’s no way you can’t see the perfect similarities between the late Nipsey Hussle and YoungstaCPT, he is a one of a kind rapper who didn’t forget where he came from.

YoungstaCPT finally released the visuals for the 7th track off his 3T album dubbed ‘Live And Die In Ca’ inspired by Tupac Shakur’s ‘Live And Die In LA’ and breaks it down even more about the record in detail on social media.

The rapper talks about his lineage, heritage and how people of similar ethnicity have been wrongly brushed aside by the inequality and unjust actions of the government.

Quotable lyrics by YoungstaCPT off  ‘Live And Die CA’

I’m coming from the Wes Kaap, West Coast
It’s like Cape Town and Compton are step bro’s
If you don’t understand our slang keep your bek closed
I grew up around 2 Pac’s they were all on death row

My people are indigenous and yes
they are the last ones
Cape Coloured
Cape-Malay
that’s the way they classed us

The ‘To Live And Die In CA’ record as produced by Miles Singleton draws inspiration from the Tupac’s 1997 song ‘To Live And Die In LA’ with a juxtaposition being placed on Compton and Cape Town, YoungstaCPT draws comparisons between the two cities and how similarly-different life for the average citizens of both cities are.

The rapper talks about his lineage, heritage and how people of similar ethnicity have been wrongly brushed aside by the inequality and unjust actions of the government.

The video aims to showcase the raw-realness that comes with living in Cape Town, as we see YoungstaCPT speaking to his therapist which showcases the need for therapy and good mental health and that the years of trauma which are still affecting people of not being addressed.

He also draws light on the positives as he identifies that it’s a blessing to born in Cape Town making note of the pro’s and cons, YoungstaCPT’s only wish is that people start working together in times of conflict.
