South African Hip Hop Awards 2017
By SK | 16 November 2017
“Hip-hop is the streets. Hip-hop is a couple of elements that it comes from back in the days… that feel of music with urgency that speaks to you. It speaks to your livelihood and it’s not compromised. It’s blunt. It’s raw, straight off the street – from the beat to the voice to the words.” ~ Nas
Coz’ this is Hip Hop Maaan! Hip Hop fans, lovers, critics, Likers and all you that are about the culture, its that time of the year again to gather, celebrate and commemorate some of South Africa’s hardest working artists, MCs and influencers in the game. Word. Nominations are in and we hope you have started your stan appreciations through voting.
The South African Hip Hop Awards, currently in its 6th year running has been recognising those in the local scene making an impact with bars, through the media and various hip-hop support. The 13th of December will see the second-time host and comedian Nina Hastie lead us into a heated, always contested but ceremonious night with the theme this year as “Hip Hop Politics”. Comrades, we are in for debatable cyphers and punch lines. Amandla!
SABC 1 has taken on the responsibility of hype man as the new TV broadcast partner, an addition spreading the reach of the awards to millions of South Africans, but also aligning the awards to SABC 1’s proposition of being more than TV but youth culture.
Accolades will be given to active members of the industry. Winners receive a statue that is called the Pyramid. The show will boast a number of appearances, live performances and tributes by today’s leading musicians.
