The Damn(Freestyle) hit maker is proving how he is a progressive natural born hustler. It was not long ago when this young rapper dropped his first mixtape The Visionary which has been doing great in growing awareness about him and his work as an artist. He has been pushing the mixtape since it dropped, he even scored himself interviews in newspapers and radio stations. He also left unforgettable performances whenever he was booked for shows in and around Gauteng & Mpumalanga. Tedical aka KingTed is not about letting his fans starve, he is so eager to be a good parent and he just announced that he is bringing a new project to feed them.
He announced on his social media pages that he’s working on a new extended play project titled “Activity1”. He said Activity1 (E.P) is about surviving and taking control in certain situations at the initial stage of your career as an artist including music disappointments, exceeding rap expectations and surviving from critics attempts to destroy you and all the other things that can give you strain or distract you from reaching your goals. This hindrances are commonly faced by hardworking musicians and Tedical shows his confidence and courage to fight and win against them in this extended play.
To accommodate a wide range of characters, Tedical added more information about the extended play, “Let me give you a glimpse of Activity1 (E.P), it’s gonna talk to rappers,people who like crazy, lovers and party people.” said Tedical. The 20 year old rapper Tedical real names Advocate Mokoena created this word “L’s” to describe his fans and his followers are more familiar with it. He said L’s means a loyal fan/s which do whatever it takes to support their favourite artist or role model to new highs. “The L is derived from the word Locomotive which means a power unit which pulls or drive something to a new position. The plural and singular form of the word is the same, is just L’s in all cases.” said Tedical.
The 20 year old lyricist seems to be happy about how the project is coming up so far, “I’m proud to announce that Activity1 (E.P) is gonna be one of the greatest.” Tedical is working on this project with No Limits Entertainment which is an independent record label in Tembisa. It’s something we all know that Tedical is a lyrical genius, a story teller, an innovative lyricist with astonishing flows and he can kill these trap beats creatively with bars so we don’t know what to expect from this project. The most exciting part of his work plan is that he wants to give his fans a series of projects, “First is gonna be Activity1 (E.P), then Activity2 (E.P), Activity3 (E.P) and then The Last Activity (E.P), it does sound like a series but all projects will have a different sound and creativity.” Said KingTed
