Rugged 3//3: Soweto Stories of Afrikah (RSSA) is an exciting new album and last instalment to the Trilogy Rong, Ruff & Rugged that was established the year 2008.
RSSA is a conceptual album that sees flash backs of the humble beginnings of a township called Soweto in 1955 with the political struggles of then & now, building up to the quest on knowledge of self and ending with the course of self liberation & motivation in the present days.
RSSA is creatively designed to leave the listener in shock of emotions of sadness, motivated to be apart of a common cause, self realisation, Love, life and appreciation of good music.
Seeing the spike of the SA Student Fees Must fall protest for change, the situation motivated the release of the 1st single Amandla which sparked both musical and political criticism that music reports social ills facing the youth today too explicitly and freely.
Look forward to the release of another thought provoking SA hip hop album. Musically vivid an album that speaks of key historical moments that shaped the township called Soweto and Afrikah abroad.
