In his quest to bring greater exposure to Cape Town hip hop, South African hip hop producer Arsenic introduces the third track off his Forgotten Files back catalogue.

Newly released, Sterk Medisyne, is a collaboration with Afrikaans MC, Jitsvinger. Sterk Medisyne is a popular metaphor on the Cape Flats for something that remedies a problem. In this instance, it refers to those ailments that plague the local Hip Hop industry.

Using his impossibly fast, yet smooth and multi-syllabic wordplay, Jitsvinger compares his flow to the way in which taxies glide over lanes. He ducks and swerves through Arsenic's uptempo, jazzy, hip hop beat, emphasising the importance of rhyming style and comparing it to those that go out of their way to fix their appearance.
