Byo rapper launches solo project

BULAWAYO - Bulawayo-based hip-hop artiste Titus Marume will launch his debut 13-track album at Ascot Centre in the city on Saturday.

The album will be launched during a rappers battle dubbed Kings of Kings Tournament organised by Grapevine Clothing once every month.

The 33-year-old Marume, who is better known as MC Tytoh in hip-hop circles, told the Daily News yesterday that the forthcoming album would reflect his experiences as a musician.

“I got into this game in 1999 as an artiste before I picked up music producing a year later.”

“Along the journey, I have worked with a number of artistes both young and seasoned,” MC Tytoh said.

According to the respected Bulawayo rapper and producer, the soon-to-be-launched album will feature five local rappers, two of whom are women.

Respected rappers featured on the album are Cal Vin, Prozac, LIK, Nemo and Chrystalline.

“The album includes both old school and contemporary rap music. Simply put, it has all the elements of hip-hop which include storytelling and party songs,” he said.

The Bulawayo rapper is convinced that he will unleash onto the market on Saturday a product of international quality.

“I have seen the market being flooded with mediocre stuff and that is why I have decided to do something about it by producing an album of great quality.

“I took my time and went to great lengths to come up with a product with a different feel. I engaged four producers though I am a respected producer.

Two songs on the album: Next on the Line and Tables Turn were produced in Ireland under Valentino Music.”

According to MC Tytoh, hot tracks on the album include Abafazi, The gentlemen and Khanda Shisa.
