With an Oriental flute opening up the Zino D beat that does admittedly ‘slap hard’, the nostalgic interpolation at the start really does amp up the anticipation for new content from The Last Letter.
You’re not left disappointed with her waxing lyrical about trust issues, mutual exclusivity, and the nature of her real ones. She progressively leans into her rapping chops, to drive home the point that she is blessed with true real ones around her and as far as thank-you notes go, The Last Letter’s does an excellent of showing love for her pride.
Chances are that she is your favourite Zim rapper’s favourite femcee. If not she will be, it is inevitable. She is doing the most for herself and fellow creatives who are out there trapping in SA, repping and moving through the international Deux 63 creative scene with her vibrant pink becoming her signature trail.

Over two nonchalantly delivered verses that punctuate each kick and drop of Zino’s production, The Last Letter makes it clear just what her real ones bring to her table, and what she gives back to her ‘pride’.
“And if they’re doing something for you, they don’t talk about it later/ They ain’t your real ones if they remind you of the favour/ Not your real ones if they don’t like you getting paper and everything you prayed for/ In the crowd they your biggest fans but backstage they act like haters,” she raps.
Considering that she thinks herself to be well known for her lack of people-pleasing skills, I’m sure she will be pleasantly disappointed to realise that her growing fan base is rather pleased with her works.
We hope to see more from her this year and she has been on the content creation trail hard on her Twitter page, securing the views and new fans who all are waiting anxiously for The Last Letter to give them a fuller meal.

So this year just might be the year we hear Zanele tear up beats alongside Lucretius. Meanwhile, I found my soundtrack for Valentine’s.
