Capetonian rapper Dope Saint Jude has just dropped ‘Keep In Touch’ feat. DJ/artist Angel-Ho. It was created in response to the queer-vogue scene in New York, but the track is full of colourful Cape-slang inspired lyrics. “Keep In Touch”, the phrase that features most prominently (and also the title), is one the duo hope to add to the ever-growing queer lexicon and according to Dope Saint Jude it means “NANCY. Nanzukz. Nanzubu. Go away. Eff off”.
Layered over a catchy melody, the song speaks about cultural dynamics specifically in relation to the topics of race and gender. To accompany its release, Chomma (Jody Brand) shot a series of gender-stereotype-bending photographs which, styled by Jade Paton, star Dope Saint Jude and Angel-Ho as they reverse roles through pose, style and dress.
A music video for ‘Keep In Touch’ is currently in the works and we’ll be taking an exclusive first look at it here on 10and5. Keep an eye out for it on 23 February!
