After a successful first season of Red Bull 64 Bars, the music series is back! Artist and producer duos embark on a rap journey like no other, where creativity knows no bounds redefining the perception of what rap should be.
The format is straightforward, artists are challenged out of their comfort zone, with no barriers and express themselves freely in music (and specifically hip-hop) a single bar is a measure of four counts over a beat. For 64 Bars, that means there’s enough room for approximately two minutes of words. Usually, a bar is one aspect of rap vocals, which often forms the verse of a song and then there’s the chorus or the hook.
The second season of Red Bull 64 Bars features 10 episodes that will showcase local award-winning artists including Sjava, Dee Koala, Toss, Young Stunna, Zoocci Coke Dope, Pabi Cooper, Kwesta, Focalistic, Ch’cco and a surprise act that will be revealed at a later stage.
This season is now available on the YFM YouTube channel starting off with the multi-award-winning rapper Sjava showing off his undeniable, untouchable rhythm and flow on a beat produced by Xowla.
What makes the new season great is the mixture of artists from different musical backgrounds that take on “64 Bars”. The rappers have come together with producers of their choice featuring; Stallion, Zino D, Mdoovar, Roscosteazy, Flvme, Skyywalker, Makwa and Herc Cut The Lights to distinctively create an arrangement of beats which highlight their respective unique sub-genres of rap.
