Kritic: the new voice of the East

Although the Eastern Highlands can boast a lot of talented musicians, there has been no-one to compete in hip hop circles, until now.

Born Kudakwashe Muchinguri, 28-year-old Kritic has been around for more than a decade, but he has flown under the radar in underground circles. Now, with a debut album due for release in February, Kritis believes it is his time to shine.

The album is entitled ‘Stand Up’ and it features controversial songs about everything from the Chiadzwa diamonds to what it means to grow up without a father.

Kritic first stepped onto the local hip hop scene as part of a prominent group called Players World, formed in 2000. Together with Kay Gee 40, Conman, DX and Noah (as PW), they recorded two demo tapes. Two tracks from the demos found their way on the national airwaves courtesy of Innocent Chuma.

DX and Noah later left the group and the remaining tripartite went on to record a mixed tape. After DJ Maraz was deported, a group of producers from Chitungwiza: Mac Blaze, DJ Barry and Cedric, set up a studio in Sakubva.
