South African rapper Emtee has entered the ongoing conversation around the state of SA HIP HOP.
With Amapiano taking over, there has been a debate on whether the genre is dead or not in the country.
Taking to social, Emtee said that Hip Hop is not dead, especially when the world dress like rappers.
“Hip hop is dead? B’yang when The whole world dressed up like rappers,” asked Emtee.
A user who agreed with him wrote: “Honestly, I don’t think hip hop will ever die. It’s just the subject matter that’s dead. These days artists are focused on trapping rather than being conscious and letting the world stay informed on issues we face around the world.”
Blending Hip Hop and Amapiano
Focalistic’s raps are in Sepitori—a vernacular spoken in Pretoria townships made up of a variety of South African languages, mostly Sesotho, Setswana and tsotsitaal (slang).
