Mzansi Wednesdayz – Classic Album Review – Tear Gas_dark blue

Even though this album was released a few years ago,its still one of my favorite and prize possessions I own. Therefore it deserves the tag line, “classic album” and also its my blog lol .

This album did not only put Teargas in forefront of the South African hip hop scene and music industry as a whole,it also solidify their unique and musical style. It also showed an incredible consistency and the diversity of their musical abilities.

This album was the 1st time I enjoyed a hip hop album with my mom,yes I said it ” my actual mother” who hates saggin’ pants and tattoos lol,she become a huge fan of Teargas when she heard the track “Party 101 ft dj tira” . Needless to say I’ve been a fan since the song “chance”.

Shout out to the hardest working dudes in the game.

Album Review_Taken from Emile Jean Butler blog.

Local hip-hop super group Teargas blows us away with their third CD, Dark or Blue. They are by far one of hip-hop’s finest groups and deliver a CD that is packed a blend of kasi style and hip-hop swag. Their work with DJ Tiro on the track Part 101 is awesome, especially as it features vocals by Jamali’s Liesl. Brilliant!
