Multi platinum-selling and award-winning rapper Emtee has teased a new single alongside veteran hip-hop DJ Sliqe and trailblazing newcomer 25K.

Sliqe, who recently left Sony Music Africa where he was an A&R, shared on Twitter that the song will be released on Friday, May 5 and will also feature Saudi.

“Let’s get to the money on Friday,” he shared. “@emteerecords x @ThatoSaul x @Saudi_rsa. 🎥 @keaheadless x @lensgenius”

Emtee and Sliqe, who previously collaborated on last year’s “Sta Soft” shared a joint Instagram post on Monday, which included a snippet of Emtee performing the song’s catchy hook.

Behind him during his performance in the video are the featured artists along with several other industry friends, including Marcus Harvey and Flow Jones.

While Emtee hasn’t released a project since 2021’s impressive “Logan”, he’s been a frequent feature on other artists' songs.

Over the past year alone he’s featured on music by the likes of Nasty C, Yanga Chief and Chad Da Don. He also recently featured on one of the standout singles (“Crown”) off the late AKA’s recently released album, “Mass Country”.

Despite his productivity musically, lately Emtee’s been maintaining a low profile following the fall-out from his controversial Instagram Live in which the 30-year-old rapper’s wife and mother of his two children, Nicole Kendall Ndevu, alleged that Emtee had physically assaulted her.

The live video, which saw her allege that she was seven months pregnant at the time, culminated in his reported arrest after he handed himself over to police in early March after she opened a case of assault against him.

According to several media reports, the rapper was taken into police custody at the Midrand Police Station where he was then allegedly taken to court before being granted bail.
