Sizwe Dhlomo gives practical explanation on why SA hip hop has been in a bad state
Sizwe Dhlomo has revealed a practical explanation on why SA hip hop has been in a bad state.
The genre has been one of the best and with the good music being released, the discussion about the death of hip-hop in SA remains a relevant topic due to how Amapiano has taken over.
Speaking during the Podcast And Chill episode, Sizwe Dhlomo gave a logical explanation about the root cause of what caused the decline of SA hip-hop dominance.
“One of the things Mac it’s actually interesting to bring that up, one of the things why hip hop was in a dire state as of late, is because a lot of the guys that got access to those platforms and opportunities then decided they want to be artists themselves,” he said.
“In my view, you can’t be a referee and a player at the same time, said Sizwe. “So if for example, your duty is to push talent then do that, don’t be jealous of talent in any way, don’t feel like you got to block them because they’ve got a song and you also got a song coming out. That’s a conflict of interest in my view and for me, I was very clear I never wanted to do music,” he added.
