"Anyone up on South African rap?" Mon Jan-08-18 10:35 AM by justin_scott
I've been listening heavy to a few cats, figured others may like this and just haven't been exposed to it. The two best dudes are Aka and Cassper, but K.O is nice too. Cassper's recent album features Black Thought and Goapele. I'll post some links. I'm on my phone, so give me a sec.
These are all from Cassper's 3rd album, Thuto, which also has two songs with Goapele. This dude is bigger than Rihanna in SA, just packed 68,000 in a stadium that only U2 have filled with more. Both of these dudes still have a simmering beef with each other, which sucks cause I'd like to hear them together.

can't say I'm a fan of either. Reminds me of artist trying to capture that popular american sound. No less original than artists who try to emulate the 90s boom bap sound, but I would personally like that more than the songs I've heard here.
