Core Wreckah – Yesterday


21 April 2011 One Comment

Core Wreckah releases his second single, “Yesterday”, a collaboration with San the Instru-monumentalist, a producer whose relationship with Core stretches back a decade.  The song is also on San and The Kritik’s forthcoming project, ‘Classic dirt‘, a collaborative effort between the two Lesotho-based producers which also features the likes of Moka Only (Canada) and Little Vic (US).

Says Core: ‘I find that friends tend to be easy to work with. San was one of the people I came up with, and we have a mutual outlook in terms of how to do things‘. The resulting track, ‘Yesterday‘, is a tale of a love triangle gone wrong. Regular collaborator, Deney (with whom Core has a side-project with in the form of the live outfit Three Piece Suit), lends her sultry vocals to the song, and leading to a much-needed release after what may sound like an eternity of tension during Core’s rhyme excursion.

Core’s voice commands attention; the finesse with which he articulates long-established Sesotho fables as well as new-age rap scenarios has the potential to leave an everlasting impression upon the listener. Intent on narrating tales from his homeland, Lesotho, Core has proven that he deserves to be as much a part of the global hip-hop movement as the next man.

About the song

Yesterday is the tale of a love triangle gone wrong, a story which takes the outsider’s perspective on how it feels to be cheated on. It is about Mots’oaneMats’eliso (his wife), and Mosito (his blood brother), their interactions, and the subsequent complications which arise when Mots’oane inadventently discovers his wife’s adultery. It is a multi-tiered symphony of pain which also has as its focal point the impact brought upon the protagonist’s family by their offspring’s misgivings.

Short Bio

Coming from a small town, in a small country, coupled with a small population, can have its perks.  For one, it gives a person the time and space to reflect upon self while also serving as the ‘onlooker’ learning from global shifts and trends, melding in and out of them at will, and fusing their own experiences in the process. For Core Wreckah (real name Ts’eliso Monaheng), growing up in the small town of Maseru, Lesotho has inspired and enabled him to chronicle dailyo ccurrences in a world that is constantly on the move by using resources which are immediately at his disposal. One of these resources, radio,introduced him to early-to-mid-nineties hip-hop in the form of Snoop and Tupac, two artists whom he still idolises to this day.
