Bulelani Mpengesi a hip-hop artist from Gugulethu is about to finally release his debut full album after three year absence on the shelves.

The rapper, who made his initial impact in the local music scene as the other half of duo called 3D, will be releasing On My Way Up on Friday.

He said that the 21 track disc is to appease his fans who have been calling for him to release in years.

“Even though we were still performing and released a solo mixtape in 2013, 3D last released an album in 2011. In that time I have been making music and I feel that now is the right time to release the album,” he said.

He was quick t assure his fans that the group was not splitting and will be releasing an album in the next year.

He said that fans shouldn’t also worry about him neglecting his raw style that made him popular among the local music scene.

“I still deliver in my usual style but I have flirted with the current sound of hip-hop. I have partnered with trusted producers such as Khosh who produced Driemanskaap’s Izulu Lam and PlanetEarth who is a well known beat maker,” he said.

He said that he still vocal about social ills such as crime, violence and substance abuse as in old.

“I also spend a lot of time in my music expressing my thoughts and view on life. I’m sure the people that have been following my career will enjoy the album,” he said.

He said that his album will be available from him as it was independently released and his lead track On My Way Up is available on Soundcloud pages.
