Hottest MCs 2023

MTV Base brings back Hottest MCs in 2023.

This year's two-part 24-minute special is set to be a showcase of the most influential and exceptional artists in the genre, as decided by a panel of judges.

The episodes will air tonight and tomorrow (1 December) on MTV Base at 17h00.

The show's format divides itself into two episodes.

The first unveils the bottom half of the top 10 names that have rocked the South African hip hop scene in 2023.

The suspense builds, leading to the second episode where the countdown concludes and the number one spot is revealed.

The heart of Hottest MCs lies in the panel of judges, who will take on the task of ranking the artists from 1 to 10.

The panel of judges includes:

DJ Switch
Fred Kayembe

Tshego Koke is the host who will drive the conversation, mediating between the panel of judges and providing insight into the music that's been making waves throughout the year.
