about

We're smashing our way into the South African Hip Hop industry with 21 blazing tracks, bringing fire straight from the streets eKasi, the dusty Vlaktes and the grimiest clubs of Cape Town.

Africa is the birthplace of rhythm. Through the slaves, that rhythm found its way to the Caribbean where it evolved into Reggae and Dancehall. From there it travelled to the US where it became Hip Hop. Soon after, it spread out around the world, and eventually back to Africa, constantly evolving and mutating on its way.

Planetary Assault represents one completed circle in Hip Hop's journey. We're keeping that journey alive by masterminding the production of African Hip Hop that continues to blaze trails around the world.

Planetary Assault reflects the many influences that have shaped the course of Hip Hop today. Listen closely and you will hear everything from classic Boom Bap, to Dancehall and Dub, to Electro, Detroit Techno, UK Grime and of course the sounds of Africa. All these influences are brought together to launch an epic battle for the future of South African Hip Hop.

Our troops have been working tirelessly in secret labs and industrial warehouse locations across Cape Town and the Cape Flats to bring a revolutionary new sound to shock and awe the complacent industry. We assembled 19 of Cape Town's most fearsome MCs to spit dungeon-dirty raw truth in a combination of 6 of South Africa’s 11 official languages. This elite cadre smashed down cultural, language and political barriers, as well as inter-crew rivalry, to come together to launch the assault. The revolution has begun.

Track Name: KONFAB, Jaak - How We Roll
Intro (KONFAB)_
I’m all up in your thoughts control your mentals like shrink hypno
spoke the lingo for your info saw your soul like open window broken into
fuck a concept – I just talk shit.

Chorus_
This is how we roll – gripping microphone.
Ripping reason and rhyme without remorse.
This is how we roll – rugged raw out of control.
With prose writtens recited as rapoetry.
(x2)

Verse 1 (KONFAB)_
I present myself - I make my presence felt,
I represent the present tense of consequence,
My one cent’s worth of conscious verse sermon,
My conscience hurts for all nouns and verbs murdered,
KON’s prose upon foes - thousands of sound hertz served,
Ground severing cleverness – solid flows I compose,
How it works your god don’t know – it’s helluva devilish,
Moles emerging from catacombs to burn your stronghold,
Pressure measurement bars – felt it when your centre fell apart,
Okonkwo dealt a combo of contrapuntal blows like 1-2 you froze,
left standing still like mannequins,
I’m an Af. battling Americans in a lang. resembling Mandarin,
marete mashishi – mohoete tsoibing – lekoete tsoibila
re masojan’a morena moshoeshoe rea bina,
Fuck a concept i’m talking nonsense – it’s all testosterone,
compliment the content - complex flow rock ‘n roll .

Chorus_
This is how we roll – gripping microphone.
Ripping reason and rhyme without remorse.
This is how we roll – rugged raw out of control.
With prose writtens recited as rapoetry.
(x2)

Verse 2 (KONFAB)_
It isn’t all so simple – riddle of the sphincter when I rip shit,
with scripts the sickest equipped to split your wig mister,
in the midst of impotence I bring lyrical virility,
miracle diction syllable spillage free delivery,
anything to seal a deal – MC minime ain’t really real as me,
fronts on Zambuk – comes with kak like tantra bum fuck,
he be these miniscule timid skinny fools I typically ridicule,
couldn’t trip a cripple with a syllable – in my interview,
clip your heels Dorothy – kids often easily get lost in these,
ozome street hypotheses – solid flow wizardry,
dropping notes for quotes in quantities to topple this industry’s monopolies,
and possibly a small country’s economy,
when I rap you have to backtrack, you’re trapped in KONFabstract rhetoric,
break you record like rap’s a sport – catch my last retort,
grate your carrot – fuck fan support we rolling rough,
all my soldiers old and young get down like acrophobia.

Chorus_
This is how we roll – gripping microphone.
Ripping reason and rhyme without remorse.
This is how we roll – rugged raw out of control.
With prose writtens recited as rapoetry.
(x2)

Verse 3 (Jaak)_
Ons rol rompruk, rond rommel, rondomtalie frommel, raadop krakerig,
roof sommer, roomskommel,
rukkerig rustig, met retro-geniese rugmurg,
repatroeer rifrug, dé-atrogreeer sug-sug,
'n regte renoster, 'n flêtse se joster, attributeerie grofste,
ruk en rol, rip en hol, rus en jol, glippen mol,
ruik rof, gryp grof, kryt stof, kruip nog,
pruik dof, Great Scott, break vog, geit plof,
'n rissiepit reagent, ek lussie spit, Fiela kênt,
Frikkie slip - giera prent, 'n bruggie krit, nie-aah, mên!,
reukweerder skaapskeurder, preek eerder, raak breeder,
reagerder praat rede-r, skrie haa seker - Vrede!,
giera kos, biere, hosh!, kierangbos, piel hang los,
stier ha pos, ure dos, duuran mos, skêllan, Tos!,
dissie redaksie,
'n sussie reaksie,
'n ruggie in traksie,
'n kluggie in faksie,
rippie vi baksie,
gierie drugs hie!,
vierie stad vie,
pie nie nat nie,
wiet nie wat nie, skrie die kat skrie, RUGBY!!!
Track Name: KONFAB, Oracle Flo - Dplanet Beats
Intro_
Lend me an ear like pied piper Mike Tyson mic device in hand
end is near like Apartheid didn’t give much of a fuck when Botha died
I called up dial-a-dildo for his mourning wife a widow
but i’m not a racist I’ve got a dozen white friends
plus look I’m sporting brown Butan from up to down
I’m talking hau utloang bastards

Chorus_
Dplanet beats damage sweet-mannered MCs palates
like beef stanzas with spaza heat added
to reach the standard you need stamina (mothafucka breathe)
or you're guaranteed to meet the canvas
(x2)

Verse 1_
Konfie shining styles so bright they can touch a sunbeam
and immobilise the rays like immobilarity uglily
kak on me and you’ll never shit again without feeling a splitting pain
in your cranium and it ain’t even gay behaviour
I’m spitting razor sharp saliva icicles into a page
creating articles you can’t stand it like hard nipples
my gob spittle sends sparks of dark syllable darting missile
liquid particles prone to be bitten like sharks cripple
and never will top the charts i’m hard to pick on like thorned pickles
my heart sukkels while these little softs suckle tit until tittles
what are those you’re tempted to arse kies me
like tight-lipted brown lipped mcs please
I’m not feeling uplifted since ben and me befriended an enemy
getting paid hasn’t been a bit easy
and it isn’t exactly like peeps generally struggle to feel me
it’s industry ignorance strictly business KON laments
KONpliment the lyrical KONtent KONFAB’s the illest in the KONtinent
KONstantly spitting out KONsonants KONsequently getting little KONpensement

Chorus_
Dplanet beats damage sweet-mannered MCs palates
like beef stanzas with spaza heat added
to reach the standard you need stamina (mothafucka breathe)
or you're guaranteed to meet the canvas
(x2)

Verse 2_
These bastards tapered me off before the 1st verse intersected the chorus
faded it out decibel level approaching the next asymptotic
exit like access denied not letting me climb like lesbian pride
fuck it I’m getting inside like a disc is a dick and the decks is a dyke
decrepit scriptures dealt in delicate slice the queen’s bread
decree of dodgy DJs extreme heat in my speech way much to be played
too hot to handle too deep to reach too hard with anger
too street to compete for seat in that star-spangled quadrangle
and too many lines within to fit in with typical written fiction
too rich in syllable to mimic not simplistic difficult to pick up
fixed in solid ground built on stronger foundation
sounds is amazing glaciers on mountainous gradient
gon take ages to raise me up to the stage of audible ranges
bound to remain caged in sound labyrithmic mazes
chasing tunes pacing to make moves and staying true
in this movement still saluting Fela Kuti and them

Chorus_
Dplanet beats damage sweet-mannered MCs palates
like beef stanzas with spaza heat added
to reach the standard you need stamina (mothafucka breathe)
or you're guaranteed to meet the canvas
