Tr3ple Phashash Tracklist:
- Lifestyle Pt. 2
This 14mb project is very refreshing; it makes you want to hear more from majita. It’s clear that at their prime, with the right resources, C-SIDERS LIFESTYLE will be a lively addition to mainstream Xitsonga music.
This is the lead single of Tr3ple Phashash. Magelegele is a story about a guy who got his wife piped by another dude, the story starts the morning after and ends with the wife back home. On Magelegele, Makheveza i dyi nsati wa munhu, nampundu se wa n’wu hlongola hi ku wa tisola. Loko lowa nghamu a ya fika ka nuna wakwe (Ezzi), na malanga yakwe, i fika a kombiwa gede – “Tlhelela la u humaku kona, kumbe yena u ta ku kota!”
Highlight of the song is xirilo xa Ezzi on the 2nd verse na #NakedMama.
Mtudu = Chicks
Vidi = Sex / Nuts (Balls)
On Maxangu, C-SIDERS tone it down from Magelegele and open up. Maxangu is a song about the struggle of life and hardships of Joni (Gauteng). This is a song for people who are on the come up and frustrated because it just don’t seem like it will happen. Maxangu is a very painful song, kambe, at the same time it’s inspirational.
“Loko vafi a va pfuka,
mhe a ni ta pfuxa vo Kokwani va ta ni vonisa maxangu
[Vutomi bya tika blind. Vutomi bya tika bra, eish!]
Loko swa misava a wu choose-a,
mhe a ni ta va ni nga za ngi ni swi lavangi ku hanya
[Vutomi bya tika bra, eish! Vutomi bya tika blind.]
Va ri khomelela n’wana Mhani,
swi ta cinca, swi ta jika,
LIFESTYLE PT. 2
“That’s problem with new school cats, you took your style from Malumekoolkat”
Lifestyle is an OkMalumeKoolKat inspired C-SIDERS LIFESTYLE anthem. On Lifestyle, C-SIDERS rap about characters from their village. On their Tsonga Trap Mixtape ya 2016, they did part one of Lifestyle. The Lifestyle anthem is a showcase of C-SIDE slang and a S/O song to Manyora (hommies back at village).
Lifestyle might go on to be the biggest song of Tr3ple Phashash.
