Hip Hop artist M2KaNE has released his latest single #IDWTC. The track which stands for “I Don’t Want The Crown”, expresses M2KaNE’s disregard for shallow recognition in the hip hop game. His confidence in his lyrical ability comes out clearly in his verses where he states just how he stands out from other rappers over a dark, piano laced beat produced by Collin V.
#IDWTC features one of South Africa’s favorite MC’s, PDotO, who gives his own perspective by exhibiting his unique style of lyricism on the song. The pair (who are both originally form the Eastern Cape) have worked together before on PdotO’s track Die Never which features on his latest album. The organic working relationship the two have created has become a winning formula which listeners will be keen to see in action again.
On his thoughts on the single M2KaNE said, “What I was going for with this joint was, it’s basically me rejecting validation. It’s me saying that I’m not going to play the industry game anymore, I’m not going to play the popularity game. I don’t care about you putting me on top of any Top 5 list and all of that controversy, because I have recognized my art is bigger than that.”
The Heartist, a name M2KaNE also goes by, has 3 solo masterpiece projects under his belt. Beginning his music career as a teenager, M2KaNE has always been a dedicated wordsmith, telling personal stories and expressing his views in his art. Even though M2KaNE has no regard for approval, he has still received props the likes of Maraza and Ginger Trill, as well as making Stogie T’s Verse of the Month for August 2017 for his track Letter 2 Blaklez.
