Gigi Lamayne’s #1BAR

South African MC, Gigi LaMayne releases her new track, #1BAR (Prod. ABZA) this Friday.

Gigi Lamayne is one of our favorite lyricists.

A part of the “Born Free”* generation, Gigi Lamayne has matured so much as an artist since her first single “Ice Cream” was released years ago.

Her new track #1BAR samples sounds rom Kwaito Legend, `Makhendlas, “Iminwe”. In the track, Gigi Lamayne “displays not only flawless lyricism, but also vernacular wordplay”

*The Born frees are South Africans Born after the fall of apartheid in 1994.
