YoungGoofy YG and KB The Rapper, two Rap artists from Cape Town, South Africa came together to form an amazing collaboration. Nobody saw this collaboration coming however it is definitely one that many are excited about.
The song is titled “Hold Up” and is 2 minutes and 52 seconds long. The story behind the lyrics, as told by YoungGoofy explains how eager the two artists are to get to the top of the music game and compete with many of the top artist out there.
The meaning behind the chorus of the song :
*(Everybody want the Money hey, yeah yeah
Everybody want the fame
“Hold up” , homie you not even made for this game
“Hold up” , homie you can never float on my wave)*
When YoungGoofy was asked what inspired the chorus he said, “Everyone wants/needs money, and yes everyone is able to make money however not everyone is able to make money through fame”.
Both verses were then written around how both artists felt about becoming the “next big thing” in the music industry and also creates an image showing that they are willing to work for what they desire and do not expect anything for free.
The music video was shot in Table View, Cape Town and was directed by Teal & Orange. The visuals are amazing and compliments the songs perfectly. Shoutout to Teal & Orange as well as @Xdizzle for putting together this work of art. The song is available on all streaming networks, such as Spotify, iTunes, Soundcloud, etc.
