Meet ANIME YXNGOAT (aka Reon George), the Jozi rapper who never uses the same flow twice. Or so his self-professed saying goes. He also directs and edits his own music videos, which – when you see the artistic flair of his latest – is quite something.
“Quick Bounce Pt.1” just hit the airwaves as part of a double-drop which saw him teaming up with two different producers for a varied punch of a release. “Ghost” was produced by multi-instrumentalist Torivo, while “Quick Bounce Pt. 1” – which is our focus today – employs the expertise of Major Motion producer By Monstah.
The track keeps things pacey and impressive. ANIME drops quick-tongued bars across a high-tone cruising backdrop. There are enough unexpected hooks to make it stick – a smooth rhythm which cuts no corners and is bred to work its way into your head.
But if the track wasn’t enough of a talent flex, the music video pulls no punches in its impressive artistic scope. Essentially a bold, intricate collage, he splices multiple shots with slick, urban, artistic flair. Natural landscapes rub shoulders with their illustrated counterparts, screenshots of production desktops, strolls in the rain – you name it. ANIME has cut himself a vibrant niche in the scene and all I wanna know is what’s next.
