Oorlog Verf Tracklist

Ralph Cyfers is a true student of the art and is known for his innovative rhyme schemes.

“Hip Hop became soft, and I came up when hip hop was
still frowned upon. Being an outcast in my society I found sanction in Hip Hop. These days’ there’s a lot of MC’s, DJ’s, BBoys and Graf artist, but
no hip hop heads, similar to entering something in reverse, this results in a lot of artists with no real foundation and understanding of the culture as a whole” Ralph Cyfers.
The 2 released singles was very well received by Grass Roots Hip Hop Platforms and Dj’s.The singles can be downloaded at the below links.

The highly anticipated collaboration between the RnB visionary YesPlsNdThnkYou and the Hip-Hop powerhouse Mvula Drae has finally arrived.

‘Outchea’ is an introspective look at the internal struggles we all face as individuals, as artists, as human beings. It is also an ode to the unflinching spirit of persistence, even when faced with demotivation and depression.

YPNTY approaches the track with a reserved delivery in the beginning, slowly building up to a vocal crescendo by the end of his verse. Mvula Drae then elevates the song to new energetic heights with his signature rap cadence and impeccable lyricism.

The production on this track was a joint effort between YPNTY and GSoul (Aka Garth Soul). YesPlsNdThnkYou laid down the basic melody and chord progression and GSoul rounded it off with punchy drums and a thick bassline, which sits beautifully beneath the haunting synths.
