“Base Hottest MCs is shitt*ng on SA Hip Hop,” Rashid Kay

“Base Hottest MCs is shitt*ng on SA Hip Hop,” Rashid Kay. The chaos around who is the best rapper in SA is becoming more intense by day leading up to the complete Top 10 list of this year’s best MCs. Like most years, it’s not leaving everyone impressed.

The MTV Hottest Base MCs started evoking controversy when the panel of judges were announced. The list includes Nota, Metro FM’s Kyeezi, Yfm’s Lula Odiba, Zkhiphani’s Mandisa Ntsinde, and Hip Hop DJs DJKaymo and DJ Venom.

Rashid Kay expressed that he was appointed to be part of the list but refused because he didn’t want to. He later expressed how the show is undermining SA Hip Hop.

Monde Twala, Senior Vice President and General Manager at ViacomCBS Networks Africa stated that;

“MTV Base has been at the forefront of youth culture and as an authority on African music, the Hottest MCs list always sparks conversation and debate in the industry. This year will be no different and our viewers can look forward to a star-studded lineup of panelists, who are authorities in their own right, having their say on who is South Africa’s hottest MC.”

The first part has already taken place listing 10. K.O, 09. Riky Rick, 08. Busiswa, 07. Costa Titch
06. Big Zulu. The second part of the complete list is set to be released this evening at 17:30 on MTV Base.
