YoungstaCPT has been trying to educate his listeners and make them aware of South Africa’s past and that the colonisers played a significantly large role in the current state of the country with a particular focus on Cape Town.
I Show no remorse / I am not a lecturer / professor or an editor / but an educator whose been elected as the emperor / the mother city was pure til they corrupted her / my people are the sufferers so I’m running for governor.
When asked why he felt inspired about to write this song and the follow up to YVR, YoungstaCPT had this to say:
“I’m comparing myself to some sort of a motivational speaker or a spokesman in the song. Malcom X or Ashley Kriel. The voice of the voiceless. Speaking for the people. It’s a lot to digest, but it bangs with that West Coast flavour.
Fast forward to present day, you now have a young coloured Muslim rapper speaking on behalf of oppressed people in Cape Town, hence me becoming the new VOC but flipping the abbreviation in the same way I did YVR, once again, to stand for ‘Voice of the Cape’ which I feel I am and represent…” – YoungstaCPT
