Reason reveals that he will only be releasing Azania next year

The rapper has reached out to his fans on social media, asking if they would be okay with him only releasing his sixth studio album Azania, next year.

South African Hip-Hop artist Reason has revealed that fans shouldn’t expect the release of his sixth studio album this year. Taking to social media today, 15 October 2018, the rapper asked his fans if they would be okay with him only releasing Azania next year.

Many of his fans responded to the tweet, saying that one cannot force creativity, and added that they would have to be patient and are hopeful that the album will be worth the wait.

The rapper has already released ‘Azania’ the lead single from the album, which featured the legendary Sibongile Khumalo and American producer and rapper Swizz Beatz. The song tackles issues such as poverty, unemployment, and other various social ills that are often overlooked and are hardly ever the subject of Hip-Hop songs.

Speaking about his upcoming album in an article published by Okay Africa on Friday, 27 April 2018, the rapper commented:

“There’s a world of people out there that need to be reminded why they need to get up and go and fight and be entrepreneurs slash monsters. Because this is the Africa we live in, being black is not easy. So we always have to stand up and fight and loosen up the circles. As you go into the album, there are other subjects where we talk about the ballers in Africa, clubbing in Africa, self-medication… a whole bunch of things.”

Some of the rapper’s fans have given him a deadline, saying that if not this year, then they are expecting the album before the end of April 2019.
