Top South African Hip Hop Artists In 2021

Best South African Hip Hop Artists In 2021

Hip-hop is still alive and well in South Africa. This year was a mixed bag for the genre, with a heated debate over the genre’s health and if it is doomed.

South African hip-hop is thriving. We’ve prepared a new Datafilehost Music Tubidy and Mp3 Quack search for you in this post, and we’ll list the top South African hip-hop musicians of 2021. Of course, several of these musicians have published songs in different genres. However, they are still hip-hop legends.

In no particular order, the following are the top South African hip-hop musicians of 2021:

1. Emtee

Mthembeni Ndevu, known professionally as Emtee, is a South African rapper. “Roll Up,” his debut hit record, is his most well-known song. Ambitiouz Entertainment, a South African indie musical label, signed Emtee. RISA certified his debut album Avery platinum on July 1, 2016.

After months of anticipation, Emtee had finally released his “Logan” project, a body of work named after one of his sons. The music video for the eponymous track was recently published, and it’s a hit even without the controversy.

2. K.O

Ntokozo Mdluli is a Soweto, Johannesburg-based South African hip hop artist, rapper, composer, and businessman. Teargas was a hip hop trio that released their debut album, K’shubile K’bovu, in 2006, followed by Wafa Wafa in 2008, Dark or Blue in 2009, and Num8er Num8er in 2012.

K.O. will not have the most fruitful year in 2021. The singer spent much of his time promoting singers signed to his “Skhanda World” record label. Regardless, he still managed to reward fans to “K:HOVA,” which you can listen to here.

3. Cassper Nyovest

Cassper Nyovest, born Refiloe Maele Phoolo, is a South African rapper, songwriter, entrepreneur, and record producer. He was born and reared in Mahikeng, North West, and is widely considered as one of South Africa’s most successful performers. He founded his own record label, Family Tree Records, in 2014.

Some people have been irritated by the Family Tree boss’s foray into the realm of amapiano. In any case, there’s no doubting he’s still one of the most powerful voices in South African hip-hop. This year’s biggest success has been “Siyathandana,” a tune for which he enlisted the vocal talents of Boohle and Abidoza.

4. Khuli Chana

Khulane Morule, better known by his stage name Khuli Chana, is a Motswako rapper from South Africa.

Khuli Chana, who is well-known for his music and attitude, is one of the most prominent players in South African hip-hop in 2021. His song “Buyile,” which he co-wrote with Tyler ICU, Stino Le Thwenny, and Lady Du, will not be forgotten easily.

5. Sjava

Jabulani Hadebe, better known by his stage name Sjava, is a South African singer, rapper, and actor. In 2005, he began his acting career, appearing in many drama series and films, including uGugu no Andile. He eventually rose to notoriety in the drama series Zone 14, in which he starred for three seasons in a row.

Sjava’s 2021 has been less than fruitful. But the songster has already made a name for himself in the realm of South African hip-hop… And we’re free to choose the closest thing to a new release from him, as well as one that has had an impact: “Umcembo.”

6. 25k

He’s a newcomer in the world of South African hip-hop, to be sure, but 25k is already a well-known personality. His latest album, “Pheli Makaveli,” has the winner, “Hustlers Prayer,” which features A-Reece.

7. Flvme

Flvme is very much “aFlvme,” with two new projects set to be released later this year. Aflame. The former Ambitiouz Entertainment tycoon has made a name for himself as a rapper for a long time. It’s too early to choose a song for him, but we have to, so listen to “How Long.”

8. YoungstaCPT

Riyadh Roberts, better known by his stage name YoungstaCPT, is a South African rapper and songwriter. In his music, he is noted for including elements about his Cape Malay culture and Cape Town background. YoungstaCPT has been regarded as “one of South Africa’s most vocal emcees of this generation.”

This Cape Town teen never gets tired of representing his city. He’s already made a name for himself in the world of South African rap, and he’s been rewarded for it. We’re going the “Kleurling” route with him because he hasn’t released much this year.

9. Rouge

Deko Barbara-Jessica Wedi, better known as Rouge, is a South African rapper, novelist, and television host. Her debut album, The New Era Sessions, which was accompanied with a short film, was nominated for a South African Film and Television Award for Best Micro Budget Film.

Rouge, undeniably one of South Africa’s top female rap personalities, has earned her stripes. She chose to follow her own way and has succeeded as a result of her decision. We’ll go with her “W.A.G” tune with Sarkodie and Youssoupha because she hasn’t released anything this year.

10. Nadia Nakai

Nadia Nakai Kandava is a rapper, composer, and television personality from South Africa.

We’ve moved past the “Yass Bitch” phase, and Nadia Nakai has evolved tremendously as an artist. She is now regarded as one of South Africa’s finest female rappers. She recently admitted that she hasn’t felt motivated to compose music in a long time. You may still enjoy her “Practice” with ex-lover Vic Mensa.
