JOHANNESBURG – Non-binary rapper Mx Blouse dropped their latest single called Is'phukuphuku, aptly translated as "idiot", a track with a surprising kwaito and sensational gqom feel.
The KwaZulu Natal-born emcee always had a burning desire to create music and has now created a formidable path in the hip-hop game, which is often seen as a heteronormative genre.
Mx Blouse first dropped bars with the release of their debut EP Believe the Bloom, which saw them adorning local and international stages.
The lyrical content of the song Is'phukuphuku is a "reflection on free expression and the probably idealistic notion of safe spaces in social settings."
The track paints a common scenario in which a man offers to buy a woman a drink and when she refuses, the man becomes abusive towards her.
"This is about a womxn’s agency and how this can often be violated in social spaces," said Mx Blouse.
