Rapper, beatboxer, poet, Raheem Kemet showcases his range on debut EP “Live Forever”
He’s a rapper, a songwriter, a poet, beatboxer and a respected lyricist – Raheem Kemet has long been bubbling under the surface of SA’s hip hop scene, waiting patiently for his time to shine, and his debut EP ‘Live Forever’ is a testament to his immense talent.
‘Live Forever’ does an immense job at showcasing Raheem’s artistic range, fusing multiple genres together over the course of 8 tracks.
From old school R&B (“17”) to a ‘90s hip hop-style jam (“Love Letter 143”), to a gorgeous Afro-house-infused title track (“Live Forever”), Raheem effortlessly transitions between spitting bars and controlling his upper register.
Widely regarded as one of the best lyricists to come out of Durban, Live Forever is Raheem Kemet’s grand opus and is a fitting introduction to a man who’s lived forever on the scene.
