Based in Cape Town, DOOKOOM is the high-voltage noise-rap group challenging the expected music and form of self-expression and their latest video “GANGSTAZ” is a hard banger of a single with a dope video to match. The first single from their latest album, ‘RIFFAK’, the controversial foursome set out re-appropriate the term “Gangster” and flip it on its head. A hard-hitting takedown of radicalized white gazes that focus on the positivity of the community as they do their best to survive and thrive in their communities. And as you’d expect from DOOKOOM, this track has some serious teeth.
