South African rapper Naledi SKYES shares the video for “Black Yakuza” with producer TGUT

Naledi SKYES shares today the video for his recent drop “Black Yakuza” directed by Naledi SKYES & Moeketsi Mohale. The new video features a cameo appearance from the New York producer TGUT himself. “Black Yakuza” features TGUT’s very own signature production style of muddy and eerie backdrops that he first introduced through A$AP Ferg’s singles ‘’Hectic’’ and “Aussie Freaks.” Showcasing SKYES’ ability to merge Zulu and English so effortlessly, only further provides how rap’s energy remains transferable across continents and dialogues. The video was shot in the Vaal, his hometown that he shares with South African drill artist Espiquet.
