Sizwe Dhlomo Advises Rashid Kay Not To Be Bitter OGs. There is no doubt that Sizwe Dhlomo and Rashid Kay are highly regarded as massive contributors to SA hip hop culture. Sizwe Dhlomo’s charisma and knowledge into the young culture have propelled him to stardom, the same can also be said for Rashid just from a different point of view. Rashid Kay carries a vast understanding of the youth urban culture, but the rapper has been under scrutiny by many hip hop followers for being biased on certain subjects.
Recently, a Twitter user gave some thumbs up to Sizwe Dhlomo for contributing so much in the hip hop game, but in the process there were some weights thrown at Rashid Kay and his reasoning towards rappers who have joined the Amapiano movement.
“@SizweDhlomo quick question. Back to your younger day’s especially ku Y (SizScopp day’s). Do you regard yourself a more experienced hip hop head or now seyishayile you’ve got that grandpa groove, more chilled and into soul. LOL i swear i saw white hair yaz?“
Sizwe Dhlomo gave a fully-fledged response highlighting that he is no longer involved in the urban youth culture and he has no plans to go back that route. “Hip Hop is a young man’s game. I’m not I’m the streets like I used to be but perhaps more importantly, I have no desire to be.” He responded via a tweet.
The conversation took a twisted turn after Rashid Kay and Sizwe Dhlomo comparison became the subject. This surfaced after another Twitter user hailed Dhlomo for giving an honest opinion on where he stands as SA hip hop is concerned. “I wish your homeboy Rashid (from Metro FM) would take notes his old as** is sounding like a hater dissing these rappers for jumping ship to the yanos like real rap pays enough to be loyalty only to in this country…“
Rashid Kay decided to get into the conversation to defend himself. “The truth sounds like hate to those who hate the truth.” Rashid said responding to the Twitter user who he is swiping at rappers who have joined Amapiano.
But too little too late as Sizwe Dhlomo quickly asked the rapper to keep his cool and make sure that he doesn’t blow the whole issue out of proportion. “Exactly & that’s why I’m saying you came across as a hater. Let the young cats B Rashid. We can’t be bitter OGs.” Tweeted Dhlomo.
