Top 5 Best SA Hip Hop Albums Addressing Self-Consciousness And Societal Matters. As much as hip hop can be fun and games it also plays a major role in conditioning listeners to think and act differently.
Conscious rap didn’t die with the likes of Tupac or faded with when HHP passed on. In spite of the hype of the vibe and beats, some rappers still believe in dropping music that teach.
In most cases rappers who drop music that carry a meaning that most people can relate to don’t top the charts. This traces back to what Bigstar Live asked once if SA Hip hop is more concerned on beats or content.
The best thing about rap with content is how it doesn’t die with time, it addresses matters that all generations are most likely to undergo. Not everyone can relate to money, bling and fancy cars but everyone can relate to religion, stress, pain, suffering, pressure, depression, death and relationships to say the least. Even so, it is mostly dependent on how the rapper pens and delivers his art.
Listed below are 5 of the best albums that address issues more with content than style and beats.
YoungstaCPT – 3T
HHP – Motswako High School
Stogie T – Empire Of The Sheep
