All4Women spoke to the rapper when she talked about her EP titled 4436 in a Zoom call. She said she was eager to drop her EP as soon as possible.

“To be honest with you, once we got the full green light on all aspects I was like ‘cool, let’s drop this’. I didn’t want to choose another five-weeks where we were going to wait or choose a date in the distant future to keep teasing my fans. Once we had the album mastered, the tracklist finalised, the cover art designed I was like – nope, let’s go! And we decided to drop on 4 December.”

She told the publication that loyal fans will definitely enjoy what’s on the EP.

“It’s the same Boity you’ve come to know over the past few months and years as a rapper. But I also feel like I’ve improved quite a bit, you know? So hopefully you’ll be able to notice that. Other than that, it’s a very rap-heavy album, I rapped my best lines and strongest bars and all the contributors brought the same magic.”

Why 4436?

Boity said that her the EP’s cover photo was taken at her grandmother’s house.

“It’s my grandmother’s house, where I lived for a long time in Potchefstroom. It’s her street number actually and it’s just such an important place of significance in my life that I had to pay homage to my family in this unique way, on my first ever project.”

Very impressed

The album features a number of SA’s biggest stars including Nasty C, Riky Rick and several more. Boity explained why we should look forward to the featured artists:

“Everybody on this album brought it hey, wow. Like I really enjoy Maglera Doe Boy, his verse was insane! I had to feature him because he’s from Klerksdorp, I’m from Potch, it’s like the two finest from those neighbouring regions, I had to. And he brought that energy. In fact, everybody on the album, Maggz, Ginger Trill – they all brought it to the table hey, I am so impressed.”
