Old Age – [Masego] ft. [SiR]

By Max Rosenfield // 23 Aug 2018

Masego is an artist I have been watching for a while now and today he finally makes his long overdue Lyrical Lemonade debut. He has been on my radar ever since dropping the collaborative Pink Polo EP project with Medasin back in 2015. It was with the release of the Pink Polo EP that Masego coined his genre, Trap House Jazz. If you’re a fan of the vibes, then this track is going to be right up your alley. Masego seems to provide a groove on anything he touches and this track holds true to that testament. Masego enlists the help of TDE’s SiR to provide some buttery vocals on the track. The track lyrically explores the benefits of old ladies as opposed to younger women; welcoming Old Age with open arms. Masego is planning to release his debut album this fall. There’s no doubt that we are in for a soulful and groovy treat with his debut. Be on the lookout and for a taste of what to expect later this year, vibe out to Old Age below:
