Mzanzi TOP 10 RAPPERS

Written by Cheesa from the blog Cheesa Chat on 28 Sep 2009
Favourite this post


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.




1) PRO 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.


2) HHP 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.


3) PROVERB, 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!



4) JR, 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.



5) Tuks 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.



6) Nemza, 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.



7) Slikour, 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.



8) DaLes 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.



9) Shugasmax, 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.


10) Maggz 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. All in the name of fun!!

28 Sep 2009 15:14

1. PRO - He is fabulous & i like his personality.

2. HHP - Oh this guys is exclusive man.....dont 4get his moves!!!!!

3. Proverb - I guess the name says it all. He can do his thing & i feel u with bombastic words. This guy has a gift with words.

4. JR - Wont lie but he is trying 2 me.

5. Tuks - He made me fall inluv with Tswana man. He is arrogant bt he makes me vibrate & i cant hear most of his songs but im inluv with this guys. He is the MAN! The things he sings about........??????? He leaves me with question marks. 

6. Nemza - No comment, ithini ingoma yakhe kanene?????

7. Slikour - He is just a sweety pie......would like 2 kiss him 1 day. I just like him.

8. Da Les - I think i should call my 16yr old niece 2 comment about him. I just dont follow him esp when he is alone. ....at least he is better when he is in his group. Kaloku i age iyathetha.

9. Shugasmax - he is also trying & i also like that song with Bricks.

10. Maggs - Eish naye i cant comment but ive seen him in that 37cm tv.

Prokid & Proverb - whenever people say Pro I have to first think who they refer to the Kid or the Verb....someone pls help me, the Pro refers to which one...

Hip Hop has never been my kinda music, sometimes I even still say it is Rap music, any difference between the 2>>>HipHop and Rap???

I missed out. i am so a hip hop head it's not funny.

Nice one Cheesa.

Now I think
You made no Mistake with PRO. He deserves the number 1 spot.

HHP has lost the plot for me. He was the ish but now he is trying too hard for my liking. Am not feeling any of his latest songs

My number 3 would be JR> Simply because he sounds better than slikour.

Number 4 would be Tuks. I cant understand a word but he speaks to me.
Number 5 would def be Silkour. He sounds more like he is doig kwaito. His voice is a kwaito voice.
Number 6 Should have been Flabba. He is the ish..... Cant wait for more from the dude
Number 7- Maybe Proverb. He has some nice stuff but I dont think he is doing enough interms of variety
Number 8 would be Da LES> I personally dont like the boy, he is too fake for me. Unlike Proverb he still thinks that being American is all that
Number 9 would be Shugela himself> Simply becaus eI think he is trying adn is sounding no different to Slikour....
Number 10 would be Maggz. He should also loose the whole american shit.... Otherwise I think if he were to work with Amu he would make a killer album.

Prokid & Proverb - whenever people say Pro I have to first think who they refer to the Kid or the Verb....someone pls help me, the Pro refers to which one... >>>>>>>>>THE ANSWER IS HERE  Sanas <<<<<   >>>>PRO previously known as Prokid real name Linda Mkhize. ........ <<<I never knew he changed names, tjo! thank you Cheesa, LMBHO @ SesTswana though

monchooza
28 Sep 2009 16:12

PRO def is my number 1, mostly because he raps ngezinto engizaziyo and the lingo he raps in is just straight forard

ms.tebby
28 Sep 2009 16:39

LOL monchooza @ straight forward language...but  maybe then it depends on whether someone understands the language  fully coz now I understand Molemi's language & Tuks....I would maybe lik ethe way maybe Tuks would play around with the language & speak deep tswana(i 'd rush to dear mama & ask some stuff) & then I start thinking he rocks & then coz im always laughing at Molemi's lyrics then maybe he is supposed to nb number 7 or something...get what I mean?...aaarg, anyway  i dont know much about  bo m'rapper

@KatlegoM: I ike this one song ya Zubs. They play it on Channel o alot. the one about being a player.

I think it's tight, however the person doing his PR for him is not promoting the song and him well. Some songs are too nice and are not recognised.

I'm really not big on Teargas. For me it sounds a lot like Kwaito, but softer.

Take Brikz for instance, one could say wa rapper if they compare the way he does it and the way Teargas sound.

I think they sound more kwaito then hip hop. but I like their songs.

GML
29 Sep 2009 13:32

Mo Molemi and JR sound the same. I can never tell who is who....

Skwatta camp should just get together again without Relo and just do their thing because it's cold in this world.

Have to admit I'm not a fan of SA Hip Hop as the artist are all trying hard to sound and look American except the ones that rap in vernacular.

1. Shaun G
2. Pro

Slikour is just too forward and loud for my liking I cannot see the difference between him and Bonang.

Psyfo I don't see him rapping better than acting in Generations and I wouldn't take his albums even offered for free of charge.

Jozi I would rather pay to watch Zimnqawana than this shit.

Who said you should wear these funny clothes when doing hip hop? Or white suits and white shoes when doing gospel?

Cheesa
29 Sep 2009 14:29

I'm really not big on Teargas. For me it sounds a lot like Kwaito, but softer.

Take Brikz for instance, one could say wa rapper if they compare the way he does it and the way Teargas sound. I feel you GML I also don't feel teargas shame its even worse now coz they have go too Kwaito in their new album. Have you heard the song that is produced and features Tira. That's were I thought hayi No now these guys are really shifting over to Kwaito.

I like u Brickz so much I even considered putiing him in this top 10 then again I thought he is  Kwaito. But he can flow and rhyme very nice. He can do hip hop too.

Oh Mo-Molemi just wanted publicity for that moment. I wonder the new CD is like.

As for uJub Jub, hayi yena he is doing Kwaito no doubt about it. He must just stop lying to himself and say he's a hip hop artist coz he is not. And he sounds so much like Kabelo if you listen to his music. And his new song I don't remember the name of it sounds so much the same as his song Skhathi Sakhona from his previous album. Its the same beat, same flow just different lyrics which sound similar. So hayi nee shame from the hip hop side.

Zubz I have never paid attention to that guy, sorry everytime he appears with that gold mike I just switch to another channel or do something else.

LMAO at 1 and Only Slikour is loud like Bonang tjo!! maybe that was one of the attraction between them LOL.

Have very few hiphop artists that i like in Mzansi hence difficult to make  top ten list), one of my favourites is JR, that guy is going places: very good album. Also like Prokid & Tumi (tumi & the volume).  Like Jabba, but lately his songs are wack..bo Mpitse etc dia bora.
Proverb & Zubs are just too deep for me.
as for Les, Muggs- i dont know what they are doing!

Mine would go as follows: 1&2) K.O, Ntukza, from Teargas. These guys can rap in Tswana, English, Zulu, SeSotho. They use great figures of speech and effectively! They may not individually have something under their belt but with Ma-E, have successfully made 3 hit albums. If anizazi ezi chap then y'all better ask somebody! 3) Zubs- Strong lyrics and delivery, great English. And I think he made a great choice by choosing to rap instead of working as an Accountant. I only wonder how he would sound in Shona 4) Amu- Has been around in this game, maybe not as popular as before but he still has it. Heard his new single- fantastic stuff- beautiful metaphors! 5) Maggs- I love his lyrics, production. Always calm and takes time to do his thing. The best thing he's ever done was walking away from that other group to work with MaBrrr's boy and Jozi! 6) Prokid- Kasi style rapper, "yasi representa, u rappa kamnandi, u sweetie, u lavo..." "Listen up, you might learn something", great lyricist and freestylist- the best in the country, 2nd to Maggs. 7) HHP- Has been around for centuries and came up with Motswako which led to the evolution of a lot of N.W rap! 8) Proverb- Great writer and can produce his own stuff, I loved his 1st album better than the 2nd. And yes, he struggles with his own home language but kicks ass in English. I doubt his freestyling skills however! 9) Nemza- this is the man behind the success of Skwatta. Quite hot-headed but he knows his stuff! 10) JR.- New kid on the block but he sure can rap and he's proved he has the ability to climb up my list!

I only wonder how he would sound in Shona 
@Lwetana043
Zubs did a song with Shona chorus from his previous album it is so hot, 
called 'andiyende'  not sure of the spelling though 

Nemza- this is the man behind the success of Skwatta
in what sense Lwestana043?
