On July 29, 2019, one of South Africa's largest acts made inflammatory comments around the nature of support South African musicians receive from their fellow countrymen. Another equally large act commented his opinion on the matter, which has since turned the Twitter timeline into a back-and-forth between users as well as the sharing of patriotic tweets sporting the South African flag.
If perhaps you didn’t notice, I sampled Miriam Makeba’s “Hurry, Mama, Hurry” and gave it a modern twist.— HOPEMA$TA (@HOPEMVSTA) July 30, 2019

Instead of feeding into this, HOPEMA$TA took the opportunity to share beat that he calls an "oldie but goodie." He goes on further to note that he created the beat in 2017 and its production was prompted by his patriotism. In the 90 second beat, listeners will note a sample of Miriam Makeba's "Hurry, Mama, Hurry," in the beginning and throughout the instrumental. The instrumental is patriotic and has an air of heroism to it. You have to hear the whole thing to get the vibe, so enjoy the listen below!
