Reason performs new single live and releases it for free for one hour 

At the beginning of this week we reported that Reason was ready to release his new single “2 Cups Shakur” for free download for one hour only.

The single seems to have received unprecedented success. It is easily currently the most popular post on our site and as of 10.05PM the single had been downloaded over 11 600 times.

The single has finally been released following his debut performance of it on SABC 1’s Live Amp. “2 Cups Shakur” sees Reason emerging victorious over his enemies who watch him sipping Hennessy. And for him it isn’t even about the chains and all the ostentatiousness that can come with what’s become of hip hop culture.

He highlights his family as what’s most important to him and there’s even a prayer thrown in mid-track. All this seemingly mellow declaration of accomplishment is echoed in the production of the song itself. None of the traditional hip hop noise but rather a song that’s all parts hip hop and still all parts radio.

“2 Cups Shakur” is the latest single off of the forthcoming Audio HD album which is set for an imminent release. Details on this and more to follow.

For right now though, get into the new single “2 Cups Shakur” below.

The free download, which appeared at around 9PM, is available for one hour here.

    1. Hi there! So glad to hear you’re feeling Reason! We love him here at FDBQ too!

      I’m sorry to hear that you couldn’t find his album at Musica. If it is sold out, you have the option of asking any staff member at your local Musica to order a copy for you. I hope this helps! 🙂

Well, what do you think?
