Top Charting SA Hip Hop Songs Of 2021. There is now doubt that Amapiano is making the trends right and there is high probability that most of the December jams will come from that genre. Nonetheless, hip hop is still the real deal in Mzansi music and we cant rule out or turn a blind eye the impact it has brought to the entertainment space as a whole.
Most people anticipated to hear multiple variations of hip-hop this year from several cohorts of rappers from all walks of life, and they envisioned hip-hop as the music of the current moment. And without any doubt hip hop artists delivered some great masterpieces with some of the tracks topping the charts. On that note, lets unravel some of the best hip hop tracks that have stolen the limelight despite the dominance of the Yano movement.
A-Reece – The 5 Year Plan (featuring Wordz)
A-Reece made a triumphant return with Today’s Tragedy, Tomorrow’s Memory. The outstanding tune exemplifies his defining characteristics — clean verses and an engaging delivery. Reece mixes his lyrics across a powerful yet subtle hook that got a deserving compliment from Wordz who made the whole song complete.
Emtee – Long Way
Emtee has always utilized trap to tell riveting tales, often about the streets of Jozi where he grew up and find his big break into the hip hop industry. As he grows to be a partner and father figure, the stories he tells in between trap creation have matured. His track “Long Way” from his recent album proved to be a love story as he managed to aligne his trap prowess into soft love song.
K.O – K:HOVA
K:HOVA was a gentle reminder that K.O is firmly good at hip hop despite the beats that might be induced in the genre. His collaboration with LunatikBeatz proved that the rapper is well-decorated in the game as he flexed his ability to flow with hip hop bars even on an Amapiano beat.
Boity- 018’s Finest(featuring Maglera Doe Boy and Ginger Trill)
Boity responded to her critics with a powerful track 018’s Finest. She puts her imprint on the game with a cool verse, showing respect to her birthplace with fellow Potchefstroom resident Ginger Trill and MDB. Maglera Doe Boy, on the other hand, dominates the scene with a masterfully composed verse pattern and inquisitively spoken language that showcases his Klerksdorp roots.
Blxckie – Sika
Most known for his witty and intelligent lines over crackling trap music a la “Ye x4”. The rapper has caught Mzansi by storm after releasing an Amapiano inspired song. Blxckie draws from outside boundaries, signaling his capacity to adapt to both the streets and radio waves by exchanging lyrics for a smoothly executed performance.
