Early B is The United States of Bloemendal’s favourite hip hop son, whose slick rhymes and lekker vibes quickly earned him a place amongst Afrikaans rap’s elite, from the first few bars of his debut video gone viral, “Leka Djy”.
“It was something so chilled. It felt like I was speaking to an old friend of mine,” Early B explains when asked about the recording of the episode during lockdown. “It was so easy to open up with her and tell her about important past experiences, so people can really expect something real.”
“I enjoy podcasts more because it’s more relaxed and I was in my own home environment where I was comfortable. It also helped a lot that the interviewer set a good atmosphere, despite us not being in the same place,” he confesses.
From his early days starting out as one half of the rap duo Earl & Agemi, to his relationship with Peach and Nax from Van Pletzen, to forming an incredible working relationship with his sister as his manager, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more dynamic, humorous and keen storyteller.
