I decided to compile my TOP 10 list of Mzansi’s Best Rappers/ Hip Hopers
. We all know that Hip Hop in SA is growing so fast and people are loving it. It is now competing with genres like Kwaito and House music. Previously Hip Hop artist used to rap in English now most of them have started using our vernacular languages in their songs. Even though some of them we don’t hear what they are saying when they’re rapping in their languages which some of us do not understand but we still love their music and the way they rhyme. So here’s my TOP 10 Mzansi Best Rappers.
previously known as Prokid real name Linda Mkhize. I like the way he rhymes and the fact that he uses his Zulu mostly in her songs. And damn PRO can flow as he says in his song Uthini ngo PRO. He’s just finished his new album and the new single is called Sekela. You can listen to it on djsbuonline.co.za. And the video is finished, hey this guy is on the roll, everything is done.
raps in his language SesTswana most of the time. I like his songs and the way he raps even though I don’t understand what he says sometimes. He is the man that made me want to learn SesTswana. My old time favourite hits from him are He Bana and Tswaka.
, tjo this man can speak and rap in English tjo. He flows like that when he is doing it in English. I don’t remember hearing him rap in a vernacular language only English. So I wonder if maybe he studies his dictionary before he goes to sleep coz the words he uses sometimes are bombastic man!
the new kid on the block has earned himself a fan. I like JR’s rapping and his music. I know he only has one album under his belt. But he started in the industry with a bang with his album The Main Event. The song that everyone knows is Gata Lena. I also love Mathata and Two Step which features Nnekwa.
Sengaga also raps in Tswana, now this is the guy that gets too deep in his Tswana. I can at least hear and understand HHP but Tuks, no. But still though I love his songs and he can do his thing. My favourite song from him is Munati Thwa.
a member of the popular Hip Hop group Skwatta Kamp. I also like the way he rhymes and flows when he’s doing his thing. I liked his song from his first solo album I think it's called Khici.
he’s also the member of Skwatta Kamp and he is successful as the solo artist as well. I like his songs. He likes to have catchy choruses that are easy to sing along. Some people said he was doing Kwaito when he came up with the Umsindo track. I think one of the reasons is because it is produced by Dj Cleo who is known of producing Kwaito hits.
who is the member of the new group Jozi. He also decided to do a solo album. He only raps in English for obvious reasons. The guy cannot speak a vernacular language coz he grew up in America. I like his flow. He does it nicely and sometimes I don’t know what happens with his voice, one might think it’s a 9-year old rapping but I still like it. The song that I like from him is Fire which features his friend and producer Bongs and Maggz.
is another Skwatta Kamp member. He also likes rapping in Zulu. I like his song Imisebenzi which features Bricks. Some people also say this guy is doing Kwaito even in that track called Monati So. I think maybe it’s because of the beat of that song but I like it though. It didn’t become popular as I thought it was going to be.
features in DaLes popular song Fire. He is that guy who comes so cool with his verse. Some people say he wants to be Young Jeezy from America, dunno. I also like the way he raps. And now he seems to be rapping more in English most of the time. Previously when he was friends with PRO he was rapping in Zulu. I wonder what happened between them. Coz I remember he was featured in one of PRO’s songs I think it’s called Igushesh before he hooked up with abo Bongz.You can re-arrange if you want or come up with yours.
