AMMO is an expression of rhythmic force reserved for two independent MC’s, unified in the midst of a “world reset” to supersede the current format of anarchy. In this context, an insuppressible duo – Shane Eagle and YoungstaCPT link up for a long awaited collaboration as a lyrical offering to the globe, where the connection of their realms speak for a multifocal cause. Produced by upcoming producer ShaneyJ, AMMO is here to strengthen the idea of embracing a rebirth of creation in the midst of the consistent apothegm, “history repeats itself”, reinstating the case of human fallacy.
The visual is set on the streets of Cape Town and is shot from an aerial perspective of a city landscape, directed by visual artist Nicole Swartz as a maze, with Alfonzo Franke guiding the camera. As the artiste’s navigate a new era, they simultaneously maintain their role of rewriting barriers of expression. An extension includes a subtle thread to the narrative and is reflected in interchanging scenes that captures the rappers climb on the grounds of the historical “East Fort” site, intentionally scouted by filmmaker Imraan Christian as a symbol for the collapse of previously enforced ideologies that continues to affect the people of South Africa today.
In retrospect, the song makes a full circle swing for the artists to fire away with ammunition, as they forge onto the introduction of their individual upcoming projects. As such, Shane Eagle aims to advance the platinum status of internationally acclaimed mixtape “DarkMoonFlwr” whilst YoungstaCPT surpasses endurance in the arrangement of an unprecedented upcoming 31st project.
