Nations Uprising

The first release, titled “Mr. Hustla”, is pure B-Boy hip-hip at its absolute finest. Released as part of YFM’s “Life” compilation distributed by Universal Music, “Mr. Hustla” remained one of the hottest releases of 2004. Early 2005 saw the release of one of Young Nations most gripping productions, the acoustic guitar based “Rock On”, which featured on the debut CD for South Africa’s Hype Magazine compilation. Reinforced by the Draztik produced “Africa Prey”, which immediately made song of the week on YFM and debuted number one on Radio Metro’s National Top 10 countdown where it stayed on the charts for weeks. The official debut single, “Zwakala Emzansi”, is a groundbreaking collaboration with Young Nations and legendary recording artist Ray Phiri from the South African group Stimela, produced by Draztik Productions. The full debut album, “Nations Uprising”, features tracks produced by Draztik Productions and the majority of the album produced by Megahertz. The Young Nations album has become one of the most anticipated albums of 2005.
