Sleep Is For The Rich


Two of South Africa’s rising Hip Hop artists, YoungstaCPT and Stilo Magolide have joined forces to release the video for their politically charged track, Sleep is For The Rich.

The clip is shot across two locations in Cape Town that represent the differences between the upper and lower classes, the extreme rich and the extreme poor that South Africa is notorious for. The first location is a penthouse in Table View and shows how the rich lay back knowing that their stock market shares will keep climbing. While in the second location Manenberg, sleep is a luxury. You don’t find the poor sleeping because they need to work 24/7 whilst hustling just to make a few rands.

“Money on my mind / grinding til I die / make my momma proud / buy a bigger crib / somewhere in the Hills…”

After meeting on the streets of Hillbrow in July 2015  – the planets aligned and a week later YoungstaCPT & Stilo were in the studio laying tracks. Emerging Hip Hop Producer Loopsta from Hillbrow created the beat for Sleep Is For the Rich.

There has always been a sibling rivalry between Johannesburg and Cape Town but both solo artist’s YoungstaCPT and Stilo have joined forces to connect their respective cities through the Hip Hop community.

This is the first of many collaborations between the two independent artists with the follow up clip, Pose Like Stilo soon to be released…
