Scoop Makhathini Highlights A Missing Element Preventing Most Young Rappers From Succeeding

On the previous episode of the online show the PopCast Scoop Makhathini and DJ Vigilante raised issues that contribute to the drag or lack of success of young rappers.

“These (new-school kids) feel entitled for certain things, but they don’t follow protocol like everybody else,” DJ Vigilante began the conversation.

“My thing is they should probably look at a Nasty (C) for example. Most of them probably came through the same time as him, but they are now, like, why is he winning? They probably ask themselves, ‘why is he winning?’,” he addes. Scoop agreed.

Scoop further took to Twitter to highlight that it is essential for rappers to have good managers inorder yo make it.

“Whatever you want to do (music-wise), and however you want to do it … a good manager is vital. Unlike the artists, they are scarce and probably don’t know they are managers yet … ” he said.
