The highly anticipated album is a follow-up to his 2009 debut album “Breakout”, which features the likes of Reason, PH, KLY, Da L.E.S and L-Tido, among others rap artistes.
Maggz has been on a promotional tour starting in Bloemfontein, Vaal and Middelburg; and Maseru will be the next stop for the acclaimed joint.
The Soweto born star started off with Saudi Western and has shown extreme growth over the past few years, working with Omen “the Chef” on his first mixtape entitled “Sorry for the Long wait”, Maggz had his fans hungry for more.
He has worked with Bongani “Bongz” Fassie, who has single handedly given him the new edge he needed to shine among the top rap artistes in South Africa and beyond through his album Breakout released in 2009.
Maggz has shared the stage with the likes of TKZee, HHP, Jozi, Da L.E.S, Nas, Busta Rhymes, and The Game.
In 2013, Maggz released his smashing hits “Change” and “No Tweets Allowed”. He was also featured on hits like “Heaven” by Da L.E.S also featuring AKA, “Good Times Back”, featuring PRO from the ShowLove Mixtape, “Sgelekeqe” by DJ Vigilante featuring PRO & MaE from Teargas.
The launch will be graced by DJs Vigilante and Mr X, both from South Africa and highly expected to keep patrons on their feet.
This launch to be hosted by Ms Kiva and Trey, will also feature other local artistes, DJs Da Starr, Bootz, Ebonics and the Cuban Linx Kartel (Trybz, NINE24 and Konsept).
In an interview with weekender, Maggz said his Love and Glory album was inspired by his day to day struggles and achievements in the music industry.
“This album was inspired by life experiences which I worked out through my creativeness to come up with the never to be missed gems,” He said.
Maggz explained that he was taking his artistic nature to another level to set up his trademark in the game of Hip Hop.
“It is heartwarming how Love and Glory has been well received; and this coming Saturday, I promise Basotho only the best fun ever. I will be churning out new songs and reminding my fans of some unforgettable classics they fell in love with years back.”
