In the month of love, we partnered up with Hennessy to host the Verse Of The Year Awards for 2018. At the event, Touchline took home the People's Choice Award which saw his fans pour out their love for him in the form of votes online. Hours before hosting his own celebratory event in his hometown of Tembisa, Touchline joins us in studio to decipher his track, "5Grand."
The song is about some of his experiences as a young man growing up and watching a single mother struggle to raise a child with a minuscule salary. He goes on to provide context into some lines like, "We ain't free until cashiers at Pick N Pay smile at black people too." The song is poignant, one that will likely be remembered long after Touchline considers retiring, but for now, let's enjoy this young man take us through everything he meant on Behind The Bars.
