We all know him as Playshis the Poet and proud member of the beard gang but, we are excited to tell you that he’s added something else to to his portfolio!
Read all about his new exciting collaboration with our favourite Hip Hop DJs and music producers Deck Geeks. Find out what else he has in store for us.
Poet or Musician or Both?
At this stage, I guess you could say I’m both.
Have you done this before or is this your first project? Please provide link to previous work
This is my first recorded project in this sense.
I have featured on a couple of songs by other artists here and there.
I have done a couple of live shows though. Here is a link to one:
Press Play – A Night With Playshis The Poet:
Do you plan to be a hip hop artist full out? What’s the plan?
I don’t want to confine myself to any individual type of art.
I feel like that is how people just want to put you in a box. I always like experimenting, whether it is poetry, music, acting, theatre or whatever creative activity that I find interesting.
With this project there wasn’t really a plan. We were just playing around.
It wasn’t really serious until we realised that we actually had something nice.
I still love spoken word performance poetry. It’s still my passion.
But I’ll most probably work with some more musicians in the future.
Talk to us about Legacy…
It started as a joke to be really honest. We were messing around.
Then we actually started making songs and realised we had something that people would want to hear.
I met with Deck Geeks one day, they played some beats (of which some were created right there and then, and I started writing some verses.)
We recorded some demos, then we had like 2 or 3 more studio sessions, and that was it.
Then they finished it.
So who was involved?
The EP was fully composed, recorded and produced by Deck Geeks, which consists of Loudima.Dreamer, BeatSlangers and Sebby Ngeteya. They are a collective Music producers, sound engineers and DJs.
Lyrics were written by each individual lyricist. Artists featured are MC Harry aka Metamorph, Lioness and JBG.
What’s your favourite track? Sure you have one.
On the Legacy EP? Well, that would have to be the title track ‘Legacy’.
What can we look forward to next? Playshis x Music
Probably a lot more collaborations.
People you’d like to work with?
There’s a lot. Too many to name.
I’m open to working with anybody though. I’m always open to ideas.
We had the honour of being part of the first public listening of the 6 track EP. Thanks to Week of Geeks we were able to witness the fire that is Legacy. *Insert fire emojis here.
So do yourself a favour and listen to Legacy NOW! Let us know what YOU think!
