AFRICA'S HOTTEST HIP HOP EMCEES

knaan

Copying MTV, but a lot more low-key, Africanhiphop.com went and ask “the authority of African street music,” Dj Edu of BBC 1xtra, about his list of the “Top 10 Hottest African MCs:”

(1) K’naan- Somalia
(2) Pro-Kid – South Africa
(3) Scientific – Liberia
(4) Karizma – Zimbabwe/UK
(5) Bigg – Morocco
(6) Eldee- Nigeria
(7) Sway-Ghana/U.K
(8) Kru-kid- Uganda
(9) Bamboo- Kenya
(10) Reggie Rockstone -Ghana

Africanhiphop.com’s readers, predictably, disagree.

  1. Shows up the colonial devide,apart from the Moroccan MC,it seems very exclusive in African sense.

  2. If I made a list, I had to make two separate ones. The first is contemporary:

    (1) Zulu Boy (South Africa) (2) Terror MC (South Africa), (3) Movaizhaleine (Gabon), (4) K’naan- Somalia/Canada, (5) Wale (Nigeria/USA), (6) Tumi (of Tumi and the Volume), (7) Jitsvinger (South Africa), (8) Chosan (Sierra Leone/USA), (9) Blitz The Ambassador (Ghana/US), (10) Sway Dasafo (Ghana/UK)

    The second is the old school list:

    1. Didier Awadi, 2. Prophets of da City from South Africa, 3. Pee Froiss, 4. Brasse vannie Kaap,
    5. X Plastas, 6. Mr Devious (RIP), 7. Zimbabwe Legit, 8. Bisso Na Bisso, 9. Reggie Rockstone
    10. Kalamashaka
