THE SESSION
Whoever does a good job should be held in honour and the shame is only in doing harm. The good was prevalent when RAP ACTIVITY was sprung into the air in a grand style and subjected to critical inquiry and examination. NAZZY, CHILLO, BRIXTON and THE NERDS clung with a firmer hold of force to vanish the status of the bribed tool of solitary day-dreaming.

THE NERDS were a treasure beyond price, working moral reform in their fresh lines and defying starved stereotypes psyches mirrored in the fragile perceptions about rural life. The Nerds were very easy to comprehend, line for line whilst remaining tight in delivery.

CHILLO was all about stabbing and promoting the ritual of blood, the message we try to avoid to preserve the lives of the young. BRIXTON is another group that welcomed the opportunity to enlighten the show with a strong identity script. NAZ were on a different non-inspiring level rapping in the language they feel comfortable with. Clean winners this week’s were THE NERDS.

By Madala

This Week's Winner – The Nerds

The Nerds
‘ asking copy cats-rappers, why you gotta smoke to be a tight mc’
    A QUICK 1 2 1 WITH THE WINNER
  • How you feel about winning?
    We feel mad happy ‘cause we’ve been here many times and turned away.

  • How has hip-hop changed your lives?
    It has helped us to find ourselves and also helped us to improve our vocabulary.

  • How do you see the state of hip-hop in Gauteng?
    It’s on the increase because we even have freestyles at school. The only problem is the egos, because rappers come here at Yfm and get exposure, get bigger and develop this ego. So when we get to the clubs we are not given the chance to rap ‘cause we are small timers.

The Runners-Up
