WizTheMC takes rap music and spins it on its head. The way he intertwines alternative stylings and contradicting sounds make for an engaging listen each time around. His latest single is no different.
New Territory for WizTheMC
Since WizTheMC shot up on the scene just over a year ago, he has pushed all boundaries out the window. Time and time again, this alternative hip-hop star has made the genre his own. What makes him such an enticing artist is truly his originality.
His biggest single, “For A Minute,” has tens of millions of streams on Spotify alone. If this doesn’t prove the star’s eclectic sense of sound and intriguing shot of fame, nothing does. WizTheMC has a diverse background and is adamant about showcasing that in his music.
He was born in South Africa, raised in Germany, and is currently living in Canada. Clearly, the musician is well-versed in languages. The most powerful language of all – music – just so happens to be his forté.
The undeniable, catchy new single of his is titled “Catch Me.” It’s guest star, who goes toe-to-toe with WizTheMC, is German rapper Majan. Together, these two battle linguistically, but mesh sonically. The candid and relevant lyrics make this song just as vulnerable as the rest of both artists’ catalogs. It’s a bit risky, too, being that half of the lyrics are in a whole other language.
Yes, WizTheMC is now dabbling in the bilingual corner of the music industry. The warm, beat-driven, and dynamic song is sung in both the English language and in German. Since both Majan and WizTheMC are native German speakers, it only makes sense that they highlighted that on their very first collaboration.
The vibe of “Catch Me” is immaculate, making you nostalgic for something you didn’t know you missed. It also makes you think about where you are in life. At the same time, it’s just a delightful song to sing along to and rap your heart out to.
Finally Getting The Duo Together
The music video for the song is just as fun. It’s colorful, exciting, and relatable. Cool-toned with a VHS style of recording gives off an air that this song could be vintage. Although fresh and brand new, it does make you feel nostalgic and thoughtful. Every lyric is purposeful and the video lets the performers showcase that with true emotion and prowess.
“Catch Me” is a song and video that makes hip-hop fans enjoy hip-hop once again. It’s unique and thrilling to see a collaboration that blends culture and styles in an age of little originality. As stated, though, that is What WizTheMC is all about.
Surprisingly, this stellar collab was years in the making. It was also shelved for two years before its May 2021 release. The star shared why that was and how highly anticipated this recent single drop was for him.
The emotional Instagram caption allowed WizTheMC to open his heart, and fans, up to the process of dropping this bilingual, introspective rap track. “suuuper special song just droppeed!!!! a real dream come tru. met MAJAN at a show in hamburg and a couple weeks later we were in the studio together and this was the first thing that came out. the fact that i still like it after 2 years should speak for itself but ill make it extra clear. I’ve been a fan of MAJAN for a couple of years now and to be in the same room with him was surreal but also the most normal thing at the same time because he is just like that. he’s the most downtoearth person you could possibly meet…”
He continues, writing, “just having been back in germany..it feels like this record has never been more relevant….getting in touch with your roots and being proud of them…no matter what…dont really know what the takeaway is but i really want you to listen to this one take it to your car…bedroom…moms place…anywhere..let it breathe..let it enter your world…or not…but give it a try.”
