Kawangware Hamptons (Rusinga School)

‘’ No class today… Yay! Well, not for me at least. I’ll be spending the whole day in detention at the common room. Mr. ‘Korner’ is at it again, he gave me the ‘receipt’ coz I didn’t do my Math assignment…arrrgh! I don’t work with numbers that ain’t cheddar. Besides, my pops told me I’d be flying to the States soon so I really won’t need all that jive. Soooo glad I’m leaving this place. I’ve had enough of those ‘Saunya’ cats calling me at the gate. It’s had studying in ‘Ngwach’ with all the madness around the school. I think my grades


st Mr. Korner - Mr. Connor - The stricte T.A in school. He’s got the weirdest shaped shoes. o Saunya - The Kawangware OBs wh at pick on ‘unattended’ Rusinga kids the school gate

will def improve in the states...oh the possibilities! I’ll probably be the token black kid in an all white school. They’ll just love me! Now I can act like those kids in the movies without having to be criticized by anyone. I’m pretty good at it. Been polishing my American accent and it sounds good in the shower. No more Kawangware Hamptons for me (DKY they insist that this school is in Lavi.). Alex.

Wes.... I’ve got a different

state of mind from most dudes my age. I don’t conform to what everyone else is doing.” I’m from Westie, Wes is from the word ‘West’. I cut out the letter ‘T’ to avoid being labelled a Kanye wannabe. Prodigy is self-explanatory.


.. I used to rap to other people’s songs until I started writing my own stuff. I’ve always loved music especially conscious hip-hop You’ll definitely not find me listening to Soulja Boy. I even have a permanent Tat with my fave lyrics on it. I get my inspiration from everyday life. My galfriend, family, pals, school life you name it. My lyrics are deep ALA Lox, Tupac, Lost boyz…yeah.

M C CHECK From Saints with attitude, ill rap skills and street cred, Kevo Wang’ombe (304) aka Wes Prodigy 17 years is well on his way to becoming high school’s next hit sensation. Sample videos from Wes’ Child’s Play mixtape on You Tube.

Be atL a b PLAY it on your i-Pod!

New look, amazing sound and video, STL’s flow is cool on this one. She combines some hip hop elements and the whole “jerk” culture to blend in what is a definite street banger. As always the gal gets a pass for originality especially on the hook and the lyrics... But I’m a keeper I’m a real heavy hitter And my clothes they glitter, I’m a trendsetter, follow me on Twitter... Rating: 3 3/4

Joint: Love The Way You Lie Artist (s): Eminem Feat. Rihanna

Em’s back and this joint is on fire! Not just because it’s Em’s twisted idea of a love song. “Wait, where you going? I’m leaving you,” Eminem raps on the opening verse, “No, you ain’t, come back...” Having Rihanna’s vocals on this joint about an abusive relationship, super! Throughout the song, Eminem’s voice builds and becomes flush with a mix of fondness and angered regret from his failed relationship. Can’t wait to see the video on this one. Rating: 4 1/2 stars

HIGH SCHOOL MAFIAS It’s shocking but it’s true, high school mafias are creeping up everywhere and right below the noses of school administrations. Its so baaad that no one really gives an oink about after school activities as getting home from school safe is a gamble in itself. We wrapped up some inside storoz from teeniez on what actually goes down and why the mafias are teeniez worst enemy..

A hunk from Braeside and a victim of the mafias, revealed to us that the mafias in his school are like a family and basically their work is to organize for fights to take place in a secluded area within the school e.g. washrooms and even get guys to record the fights on video which are later sold or passed around for peeps to watch. We learnt that guys would rather solve their beefs personally at home than let the mafias know since once the matter is brought to their attention, they handle it their way. If at all they learn of bad air around certain people and its not been brought to their attention, the parties involved get serious whoops and punches from the mafias before being made to fight each other. Snitches who report what goes down to the admin are also not left unpunished, though such cases are rare as no one really wants to be in the mafias bad books!

tell’ story. “Some dude was hitting on me but I didn’t know that his ex was a senior in my school. My head was hit on the wall in the bathroom, I fell and blacked out immediately only to wake up later to s stench all over my body. They had emptied a sanitary bin on me!” And you would think that’s all! The mafias also deal in alcohol supply and sell in school, stealing goodies or even demanding stuff from peeps. Another shocking one we learnt of is the ‘act of slicing’. If one has hot dude or chic and one of the mafias want this person, they simply tell you to break up with the person, failure to comply would lead to panel beating. These are just some of the tales we could get as teeniez were scared stiff to reveal their ordeals and what they have witnessed in fear of being tracked down by the dreaded mafias.. While it may seem bold, cool and powerful,

Twist in the tale

dangers and risks involved can be costly as one

Shockingly, we thought it was a dude’s only affair. *Brenda 204, shared with us her ‘never

can suffer fatal injuries from these fights! Be warned!
