“When I FORCED my way into this industry, I had to do it amongst some of the greatest names SA has ever seen. This is Hip Hop, not crèche … nobody “gets” a f*ck*ng “chance”.” AKA.
“I feel like should go a year without releasing music and just chill. A part of me will always gravitate towards what they have to say because I know their story,” said Scoop.
Scoop said that he feels like there’s a lot of new artists that we might not be playing that are making much better music, especially the guys that have been in the industry for close to a decade now.
Scoop said he feels like a lot of the old dudes in the game they have nothing new to say and they have no new ways of saying what they want to say.
Scoop emphasized that he feels like a lot of ignored artists have something better to offer than the veterans in the game.
As much as this how Scoop feels, he also acknowledged that he knows it”s hard for the legends not to make that music.
Cassper Nyovest grabbed the bull by its horns and said that what Scoop was saying does not apply to him.
“This doesn’t apply to me at all. Firstly, my last album was 2 years ago. My music never ever sounds the same. I am always in the streets hence I catch on to the next SOUND before anyone does whether ke piano or drill. Lastly, my next album drops Sep 11th & it’s fucking amazing,” responded Cassper Nyovest.
“Scoop. The newer guys are fighting this fight and killing shit without anyone taking a so-called break. Don’t shit on their grind just to be seen as a rep for their wave. They don’t need you to steal flowers for them. That’s stealing credit from them. Nobody moving bro. It’s love,” responded Kwesta.
Kwesta said that he was not even trying to protect his sh!t from opinions – be it good or bad.
“I ain’t even tryina protect my shit from opinions – good or bad. Sometimes you don’t want “the usual” I get that. It’s been 4 years since DaKAR II with snacks in between and yeah, tastes may change but every chef gotta fight for his knives,” wrote Kwesta.
“J.COLE warned us about gatekeepers in hip-hop the “would you take a break please rapper” crew. That is absurd, let the people decide by buying or not buying the music. We’re all entitled to our opinions, but some opinions are not sincere and have no premise. My 2 cents,” wrote Thembile Dlepu in responding to the video below:
