Two dukes of Maltese rap are coming together this weekend for an epic double bill at the Lovin Music Awards.
Kapitlu Tlettax and Lapes have been tearing up the Maltese underground for years, building a name for themselves in the local hip hop scene worthy of legendary status. Although the relationship between the two has sometimes been rocky, they operated within the same spheres and collectively have shaped the rap scene into what it is today.
Perhaps the one feature that unites the two is their loyalty to rapping in their mother tongue, a particularly difficult and forcibly innovative challenge considering the lack of precedent behind it…
Il-Lapes knows a thing or two about winning the crown and keeping it safe and sound
Malta’s hip hop prodigy Claude Agius has been likened to a Maltese version of Eminem, a bold claim many would still gladly agree too, and one that he lives up to with his super quick, rap-god like rhymes. He’s performed alongside Andreia Delicata as part of the hip hop supergroup, Marmalija as well as No Bling Show, but many know him by his fitting stage name ‘Il-Lapes’.
‘The Burmarrad Butcher’ is possibly one of Malta’s most technical rappers.
Notorious for being a profoundly deep lyricist who dedicates a lot of time fine-tuning his flow which he ruthlessly unleashes during his brutal rap battles… of which he is Malta’s undisputed king.
His freestyle skills are deadly and facing Lapes in a rap duel is surely bound to end in your demise.
Just check out his super-hot freestyle flow at 4:10…
Equally as important but starkly different is Mosta’s finest, Kapitlu Tlettax
Rap heavyweights themselves, the duo comprised of Joseph and Edward has grinded with a style of hip hop that’s both rebellious and satirical yet uncompromising on its sentimental touch.
They’ve teamed up with the likes hip hop heavyweights Digby, Rem and Shyli, racking up thousands of views on the way…
Equally talented in the freestyle abilities, Kapitlu Tlettax are guys you don’t want to fuck with.
With a plethora of hip hop knowledge and a spitting duo combo from hell, they are most definitely one of Malta’s hottest underground acts right now.
Artistic differences aside, the Mosta heavyweights will come head-to-head with the Burmarrad prodigy this weekend when the two sides meet for an epic double bill at the Lovin Music Awards.
Having Kapitlu Tlettax and Lapes in the same building on the same night is a very rare feat… and you don’t want to miss out on this one.
