More info about Middelvinger
Between the Berg and the Breede River, straight outta Boland – that’s where rapper Middelvinger (real name Jéan Labuschagne) was born. Having been a background player in the SA music industry for almost two decades, Middelvinger crafted the reputation as somewhat of a mythical figure, providing lyrical inspiration to more than a few artists – Fokofpolisiekar’s “Bel Vir Middelvinger” is a nod to the rapper’s early days of dealing weed in and around the CBD.

Middelvinger has swapped rolling zols for lyrical jols, and as a result has gone from Dealer to Healer with this track. With one of the catchiest choruses you’ll hear anywhere this winter, “Weskus Boi” will have you dreaming of lazy summer days by the seaside, and was born out of Fred Den Hartog’s (Die Heuwels Fantasties) Cape Town studio, The Nothing Club.
Middelvinger explains the song’s rhythmic narrative
“This is feel-good music with some crazy rhymes. It’s a blend of that old school ‘90s early 2000s-style production with a modern college hip hop feel to it. It sounds like the beat up system in the Conquest we used to drive around Stellies and sell weed in.”
“Weskus Boi” is without a doubt one of the most eclectic releases of the year, and is backed by a stellar supporting cast that lays a solid foundation for Middelvinger’s debut single and promising future.
