About ‘One For Me’
Love has been at hip-hop’s center since its birth. That’s including love of the game, the love of money, and love of one’s self. Of course, rap has opened up enough to speak of loving someone else. In this debut single, XXC Legacy admits finding a part of herself in realising that societal standards and perspectives were a detriment in her relationships.
This drove her to her pen verses, and rhymes. A love for writing came early for Courtney. Spanning back to when “Pabi Maloi” hosted an open mic session where she performed Shakira’s hips don’t lie at the age of 7, at this stage Courtney realised that music will always be a part of her – a moment in history for her that she will never forget!
From learning J.S Bach’s Minuet in G major by ear to successfully auditioning at the National School, XXC Legacy was born.
This is one fire female artist to watch out for! XXC Legacy’s follow up material is due to release in June 2021. Paradise Sound System’s Kabelo Masike is the A&R mastermind behind this collaboration. His passion for developing African talent is what drives this project, the first of many high profile releases under his belt.
‘One For Me’ is NOW available across all digital platforms HERE
