Youngsta CPT Explains Why He Feel Hip Hop Still Live In Capetown. In Cape Town’s hip-hop circles, it’s commonly believed that the city’s most popular rappers owe a lot of their success to the Cape Flats atmosphere. A lot of good rappers have emerged at the Cape flats, and there is a sense of belief that the Cape flats contributed massively to the popularity of the hip hop culture in South Africa.
During an interview on Slikour Onlife, Slikour made a revelation mentioning that hip hop in South Africa started in Capetown. Reminiscing the days of DJ Ready D and Emile YX, Slikour was in agreement that these are the true pioneers of hip hop. “Like you already mentioned, these are the people who started hip hop in this country, they really started hip hop.”
Youngsta CPT was really amused with Slikour admitting that Hip hop started in Capetown. “Is South Africa ready to have that talk?” he asked hilariously. Slikour went on to mention that it would be interesting to have a conversation of South African Hip hop as a whole. “Can we really have like a conversation of South African hip hop as a package and we saw these guys and it really started in Capetown,” he said.
Youngsta CPT was in agreement that the hip hop culture started in Cape. He mentioned that despite the Amapiano movement being dominance in Johannesburg and Pretoria, Hip hop is still alive in the Cape.
‘Its so crazy because now that the piano movement is so big in Joburg and PTA now I also feel like hip hop still lives in Capetown.” “The reason I said that is because the B-boys are still active, the Djs are still active the graph artists are still active and the MCs are still doing it you know.”
Youngsta CPT further explained why the hip hop culture in Capetown has not been diluted by the Amapiano movement making it clear that the people in Cape are still loyal to the hip hop game and they understand the culture. “In order for us to still participate the knowledge of why we are doing it and the reasons of why we are still in love with this culture is still very strong its prominent,” he explained.
