Following the success of his debut album “Nomvula”, ShabZi Madallion closes the year off with the sequel to his cult classic and fan favorite, SOUL. Almost three years after the first installment, SOUL 2 delivers the same introspective, heavy and gloomy energy fitting of the title.
The project is 11 tracks lean and is well narrated by clips of Maya Angelou who provides precise anecdotes that give context for every mood and every song, SOUL 2 is a journey, a story in musical form. Features from Nandile Ndamase, Kyle McEvoy & Kimosabe brings a melodic feel to the projects and allows ShabZi to do what he does best.
A variety of producers, which include BeatsxBlass, Nerd Beats, tapecut, keep this project sonically cohesive and somewhat reminiscent of its predecessor. SOUL 2, stands on it’s own yet is a perfect sequel that is inline with the subject matter and tone that made fans fall in love with the first offering.
