Phatboy Lutor - doing it for himself

MICHAEL KAYUNDE

WINDHOEK

After spending time in music group LBHT and thereafter being recruited as a back-up vocalist and dancer for artists such as Satlam, Blacksheep and Sunny Boy, Phatboy Lutor recently released his first solo music video, Epangelo.
Narrating his musical journey, Phatboy Lutor mentioned that he started recording music in 2012.
“Kwaito was a big genre back then, so that is the genre we started with.
“I am a hip-hop artist now but this only happened in 2014 when the rest of the group didn't feel like doing music any more,” he said, adding that he chose to focus on hip-hop because it's one of the genres that has been topping the charts.
Despite identifying as a hip-hop artist, he told tjil he is open to collaborating with musicians who specialise in other genres.

Economic freedom
On his latest single, the rapper said the song is meant to motivate young people to strive for economic freedom, adding that the youth should not wait on government for employment, but rather start their own.
“I've been busy in the studio but I'm in no rush to be dropping an album, maybe an EP. For now, just more visuals and more exposure,” he said.
The musician added: “In the meantime, you can request my song on radio or check out the video on YouTube”.
Hip-hop being an egoistic genre, Phatboy Lutor confidently said: “To everyone who’s just getting to know me, this is a journey you don't want to miss out on.
“To my fellow hip-hop artists, I am a threat, I'm not playing games.
“I'm here for business, so do yourself a favour and get your bars right.”
