The Holstar and Teck-Zilla - The Extraordinaires
The Extraordinaires is a collaboration album between Zambia based emcee The Holstar (Slam Dunk Records) and Canada based producer Teck-Zilla (Str8 Buttah Productions).
A 10 track album made up of gritty, soulful beats and insightful topics. A much needed departure from today's flash in a pan, pop hook laden rap songs we are all used to.
From the self questioning "Blackman Struggling"(feat UK based Mister Rae of Str8 Buttah), nostalgia inducing "Past Present and future" to the rapid fire ratatat found on "Skills" Feat Southern African MC Zubz.
The Extraordinaires is a prime example of hip-hop in its purest form, thought provoking and head bobbing.
The Holstar and Teck-Zilla first linked up on Africanhiphop.com where they collaborated on Zone Fam’s “To be an African” Off the African Hip Hop Mixtape. They went to work on Zone Fam’s first full project “The Full Script” that was one of 2010’s most downloaded Mixtapes on the African Continent.
The Extraordinaires will be available as a Free Download on The Holstar and Teck-Zilla’s Bandcamp on the 12th of January 2012:-
