“SA Hip Hop is in a weird place” – Khuli Chana. What we have been coming across more often now are complaints on the state of SA hip hop. From Scoop, DJ Vigilante, Cassper and now Khuli Chana to mention few thought-provoking sentiments have been shared.
A video circulated of DJ Vigilante explaining what ruined SA Hip Hop. He stated that SA lost its authenticity when rappers sounded more American.
“SA HIP HOP artists wanna sound more American . What happened to our own SA HIP HOP sound. Remember the era of NEW AGE KWAITO ? , Era of DO LIKE I DO , CARACARA ? SA HIP HOP was at the peak because we were doing us.”
In addition Vigilante made an example of the likes of Zakwe, Okmalumkoolkat, Big Zulu, Ma-E, Khuli Chana and Kid x as the people to appreciate in the game since they bring originality.
Khuli Chana simply agreed that indeed SA Hip hop is a weird place.
