It was during the opening up of the heavens; a dark rainy night in the streets of Maboneng, that – quite fittingly, a hoarsed bar-spitting sage introduced himself over hard beats and a lively audience. He’s difficult to miss, and even harder not to hear. His name? God Diablo, a spiritual oxymoron that hails from the East Side (East Rand), as you’ll hear on his smashing EP The Heart Tape ‘The Heart Tape’.
The lead single ‘East Side’ is a bar-punching, hype-inducing anthem about his place of origin. God Diablo doesn’t just throw shots, he fills up the glass, and breaks it all the same. He’s a bar-spitter, a teacher, and a very mean rapper for the game. You won’t only be entertained, you’ll be equally informed.
