Screen grab from Youngsta CPT's Top Ten List video evoking Friday the 13th imagery,
When MTV Base released its controversial Top Ten List for the Hottest MCs of 2015 one of SA's most hardworking Hip Hop artists decided to set the record straight.
About a week or two later in early December 2015 Youngsta CPT released the single Top Ten list as a direct indictment on the media hype and bias afforded to what he and many others consider to be undeserving artists.

He has now followed that up with a brilliantly produced video for the song released on Friday 13th May 2016.
With visuals reminiscent of the Fridat the 13th horror flick, scenes from the video hit you with imagary that alludes to a scorned protagonist ready to slaughter those who are withholding him of his rightful place in the hierarchy of Hip Hop.
