– by The Team
The Team is a rap and hip hop collective hailing from the sunny shores of Durban, South Africa. We comprise of four young guys who are different, but connected by the same vision; Impacting lives through good music which gives glory to Christ.
We aim to paint rap with a new brush. One that is far different from what is regarded as popular. One that challenges the status quo. In a generation where hip hop culture plays a big part in the lives of youth many negative connotations have been attached to the genre. It is important to show the youth another route to take which opposes what is deemed popular. Our mission is to show this route and prove that there is more to life than what the world has to offer.
It all started in 2014 where a common passion for rap and music brought us together and we have not looked back since. In everything there will always be challenges but these challenges moulded us into the men we are today and we believe the lessons learnt aid in pointing our listeners to the One who brought us through it all. A message of victory, hope and motivation can be found in our lyrics while keeping the “real” element which many can relate to. All of this bonded together through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Many doors have opened for us from rapping live on radio, to being streamed across the world and rapping on some of the biggest platforms gospel music has to offer. Our music can be found on many platforms including SoundCloud, Google Play, iTunes and many more. Our first mixtape “Hope” was released in 2015 and we are in the process of releasing our debut album “Flooded with Light” for early 2018. Big things are in store and we hope through the grace of God that many lives will be changed and many youth will be inspired to strive for more.
The future looks bright and we will continue to pursue excellence in what we do. On our agenda is to spread the message across not only the rest of Kwa-Zulu Natal, but across South Africa, Africa and the world.
