A Fool’s Hope – More Than Just An Album


21 November 2007 No Comment

It’s finally here, the long awaited debut album from one of the most revolutionary artist from S.A.  Coming from the warm hands of the Free State, this is Mawe-2's first offering… Hip Hop is one of the most influential music genre in the world today, with the confrontational and sometimes controversial nature of the lyrics common in this genre, hip hop has evolved into a culture that represents the views of young people across the globe. Mawe-2 is one artist that exploits this to speak of issues affecting young people in S.A and the globe.

A Fool's Hope is the first project to come out of Rooftop Records. Rooftop Records is a segment of a Multimedia company called Rooftop Media. Rooftop Record is a company owned by Mawe-2 and two other members in order to create a space for artist to create uncensored quality music. This allows the artist to fully explore their creative side, and voice their opinions. In the pastMawe-2 has worked with artist such as: Zubz in his debut album called Listeners Digest "heavy 8" and on Optical Illusion's album called “Definitive”, he also has worked with acts like: Battlekat, Proverb, Tumi(tumi and the volume) and many more… A Fool's Hope consists of 16 thought provoking songs that come from an honest place, dealing with internal struggles that the artist and most people deal with. In this album Mawe-2 stays away from the self glorification that is common in most hip hop albums, but rather tackles real life issues. This is what will make this album relevant even in the next ten years to come. The build up to this classic has been backed up by media coverage from Y-Magazine, Hype Magazine and interviews by local and international radio and television interviews. The first single to this album "Feels Like" is already getting airplay from several radio stations such as YFm, Metro Fm and many other local radio stations. Rooftop Records has already shot two music videos for this project which shall be ready by the end of October 2007.The month of September shall also host the launch dates of this project. A fool's hope shall be launched in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Bloemfontein and the Vaal Triangle.(visit www.myspace.com/mawe2 for more details and launch dates) This album is being distributed nationally by Soul Candi Distributionwww.soulcandi.co.za
