Loendi Mnyungula better known as "AL-timit" or "Loendi” grew up in Ottery, Cape Town.Through his dance career before becoming a rapper he was always affiliated and inspired by the Hip Hop culture.
At the age of 7 he started dedicating most of his time into dancing and became a professional dancer at the age of 14 in a style known as “Popping”.
At the age of 14 he also joined up with a movement called the "The FlyKids" lead by well-known rapper YoungstaCpt. Being in the movement as a dancer he started getting inspiration from the rapper YoungstaCpt and done his first ever track "The mother@fu*king Flykids" followed by his first ever solo track called "The Real" recorded under the alias “AL-timit”.
As his reputation grew and him being known as a rapper, he then left the movement to focus on his dance career as a soloist.
After backing down from competing locally, AL-timit The Artist is now making a comeback into the music industry and is more determined now, more than ever.
Growing up and not having any resources at home, he would look forward to going to school where his school colleagues would play music from the likes of Michael Jackson, Nas, Bone Thugs and Harmony, Notorious BIG, 2Pac, HHP, and Offset, every day after school while waiting for the school bus to arrive.
The style of music he makes is Trap (new school style) and Boombap (Old school style). In this combination he’ll fuse the two. Upon doing so he’ll incorporate languages such as English, Xhosa and Afrikaans in his lyrics, making him appealing to everyone in a positive, educational, and inspiring way. Not forgetting the tongue twist flows he lyrically spits (rhymes). The aim is utilize this skill, to not only appeal to the locals but to international individuals too.

- Upcoming artist abstract703 has been the talk of Cape, well known for performing at RAW (Real Art Wednesdays) and best known for his freestyling. It was about time the two rappers came out with something fresh. A track called “Pause Em”. The concept of the track was to use the incident that happened at “Rocking The Daisy’s to YoungstaCPT as reference, saying that artists shouldn’t be disrespected nor belittled by the audience no matter how big or small the artist is. We put our heart and soul into every performance and what we doing is not a hobby but it is a job that assists in bringing food into our homes. No artist deserves to be treated with disrespect whilst showcasing their craft.
