Up and coming artist from the south Durban township of Kwa-Makhutha, Rap Scientist (real name, Londa Mthembu) is looking to make a name for himself in the music scene. Defining his style as “authentic in terms of fusing new school rap with real bars,” this young emcee clearly has a sense of what he wants to achieve with his music. We linked up with Rap Scientist via a digital interview and he explained his plans for his new single. Titled ‘I Don’t Want No Problems’, RS said that his plans for the single are “to try get the song on radio, ’cause I believe this song can make waves in months to come.”
The kid isn’t new at all though in the game. He’s been a part of a crew known as G.N. Army, which has “played a big role as my lyrical content was enhanced by them”. So a lot of the G.N. Army days were more about growth for RS, as he did proclaim that he learnt a lot from each member of the crew (G.N. being a powerhouse of different rap styles).
When asked about his thoughts on the state of Durban Hip Hop, RS said “Durban hip hop is booming. It’s great that things have changed, and you don’t have to go to Jozi in order to make it. Cats from Jozi are coming here for a better platform.”
