Van Coke Kartel – Buitenkant II Video Released

Van Coke Kartel 295x300 Van Coke Kartel   Buitenkant II Video ReleasedThe MK MVP (Music Video Project) launch was held in Cape Town last night. Unfortunately I could not make it this time around. Van Coke Kartel was part of the project this year and they have released a video for their song “Buitenkant II” (which happens to be one of my favorite Van Coke Kartel songs).

These Bellville boys are currently on their Half a Decade tour. The band is celebrating 5 years in the South African music industry and playing a whole list of venues around the country. Don’t miss out one of their shows.

Van Coke Kartel have won the MK Award for Best Live Act for two years in a row. They are actually performing tonight (the 23rd of November) at Firkin in Centurion and tomorrow night at the Brickfields Music Festival in Johannesburg.

In case you did not know, “Buitenkant II” was re-worked earlier this year for the Vanfokkingtasties album (which is also one of my favorite albums of 2012). I love this version of the song and I love the video for it even more (which was produced by Groundglass and directed by Thomas Ferreira). The original song was released on Van Coke Kartel’s debut album in 2007. Check out the video for “Buitenkant II” below:

Here are the lyrics for “Buitenkant II”:

Hier wag ons die seisoene om
Daai skuldgevoel jou medisyne
So hou ons aan en verdra net alles
My liggaam het al beter dae gesien

Jissus, dis gevaarlik hier!
Jy kan nog steeds nie vir jou self dink nie
Die winterkinders dans met Sjina vanaand
Geld in die hand! Buitenkant!
Ek is dalk nie ʼn sent werd nie maar ek voel soos R300!

Geografies is ons geïsoleer
Verbitter deur jou ervaring
Begryp in stilte ons ontwikkeling
vertraag deur ons afwesigheid

Fokkit, dis gevaarlik hier!
Jy kan nog steeds nie vir jou self dink nie
Die winterkinders dans met Sjina vanaand
Geld in die hand!
Buitenkant!
Ek is dalk nie ʼn sent werd nie maar ek voel soos R300!

In ons fokkin moer
Knieë op die badkamer vloer
Ek het jou al daar gesien
Ek het jou al daar gesien

Die winterkinders dans met Sjina vanaand
Geld in die hand!
Buitenkant!
Ek is dalk nie ʼn sent werd nie maar ek voel soos R300!
