After recording for over a year and a half and pushing himself to spaces that no HipHop artist has dared to go in Africa, Shane Eagle has finally delivered his long awaited debut album.
The album comes with a track list full of new music, which is a clear indication of his approach to creating an album being one of a conceptual nature, from beginning to the end of the album you can hear Shane’s story, growth, challenges, trails and triumphs. The album sounds like a well put together piece of art and not just a track list of “radio singles”.
South African hiphop has grown over the last 5 years, there is no doubt about that. However, the industry is still young and will be going through various developments in the coming years. “Yellow” has just added a new dimension to South African hiphop, a dimension that has never been visited by any artist on the continent.
By dropping an album of this nature Shane Eagle has opened the doors to a realm of hiphop that wont only change the way South African hiphop fans consume music but will definitely solidify Shane Eagle as the leader in the world of African hiphop.
