While you’re not particularly familiar with the name, CASHBID, 27 years old, is a rising musical act representing a significant part of Zimbabwe’s growing hip hop and rap culture. Despite little exposure to a global audience, unlike some of the big West African acts we know today (D’banj, Sarkodie, Ice Prince etc.) the music scene within the Southern parts of Africa still stands strong and acts like Cashbid are embroiled in it, ready to showcase to the world.
”This rap is easy but to some it aint no cigar, I get my fair share of challenges but I’m Steven Seagal…”
Produced by Ahsayn Da Beatmaker, ‘Time Lapse’ will make up part of Cashbid’s upcoming mixtape titled ‘Lyrical Redesign‘ due to be released next year. While you wait for the full project, you can expect a short EP including another of Cashbid’s tracks ‘The Realest.’ Lyrically, Cashbid’s got it and with the accompaniment of an excellent producer like Ahsayn, there is a substantial amount of belief that what he has in store will definitely reach the masses.Listen or download ‘Time Lapse’ above and ‘The Realist’ below.
