The poet has some thoughts on what good hip-hop is, and it’s not the music AKA makes.

Poet Ntsiki Mazwai has again shared her disappointment with the content in some local hip-hop songs, saying the genre has “definitely been dumbed down”.

\n

Taking to Twitter, Mazwai said her 18-year-old brother had told her he did not listen to hip-hop because the lyrics were “dumb”, further lashing out at artists such as AKA, Cassper, among others, for using the hip-hop platform to say nothing.

\n

“Thanks AKA, Cassper, Riky Rick, Emtee for using the platform to say DOLOLO,” she said.

\n

However, some of her fans disagreed with the poet, saying her brother was just “too picky” and that there were some good hip-hop songs that made sense.

\n

“I think he prefers excellence to mediocrity ……when someone SPEAKS they SPEAK. It’s not a sometimes affair,” she responded.

\n

Those who saw her comment told her that it was her job as an older sister to introduce her brother to the “right hip hop with substance”.

Ntsiki has previously shared her thoughts on SA’s talent, saying some rappers were not talented but just confident, qualities she said fans failed to recognise.

\n

She also spoke about sampling, not really against it, but she said if a rapper felt the need to borrow another rapper’s lines then maybe they’re not a rapper, as “imitation is not art”.

\n

“In South Africa…..a LOT of the time CONFIDENCE gets called TALENT…….and this happens in the mainstream kakhulu,” she said.

\n

She then gave an example of AKA, who has sampled before, and said she did not know if she thought rap was his strength. “I think he is carried a lot by his confidence and boldness,” in response to a follower who said AKA made good music, despite his personality that some don’t seem to like.

\n

“I prefer Kwesta to both Cassper and AKA put together…….by faaaaaar! Kwesta can rap! hahahahahahahahaha,” Ntsiki tweeted.

\n

She then went on to accuse “this generation of rappers”, who she said brought cocaine to the South African stage. “We see you,” she wrote.
