With 2017 kicking off on a high note, I’m about to countdown the Top 6 South African rappers expected to release projects this year. The list includes some hip hop acts which were expected to drop their albums last year but couldn’t due to various reasons. Now we count down the highly anticipated releases from SA’s finest. Peep the list below.
AKA was suppose to to drop his third studio album last year but the Supa Mega couldn’t beat the deadline. However on a recent Trace urban twitterview, Kiernan confirmed a new album dropping this year which will be a follow up to his 2014 released album Levels.
2. Cassper Nyovest
Last year the 428 to LA rapper gave us a sneak peak of the photo shoot of his upcoming album with Jonathan Mannion which is still in the works. Cass didn’t release any album last year but he did reveal the title of his upcoming album Thuto which will hopefully drop this year.
3. Riky Rick
Last year Rily Rick gave us the smash hit Sidlukotini which carried him throughout the year. Bridging the gap between music and fashion, Riky is also expected to release a follow up to Family Values which he released 2014. King Kotini also announced last year that he was dropping a mixtape but that never came to life.
The Skhanda Gawd is one artist expected to drop an album this year. It’s been two years ever since K.O has released a full length project. However, the Caracara hit marker has confirmed a new album dropping mid-year 2017. With Don Dada serving as the latest single taken off K.O’s upcoming album.
We’ve been waiting on a Maggie album for a long time now. Maggz was suppose to unleash his new album last year December but that never manifested due to undisputed reasons. But we’re hoping the Vaye hit marker will finally release his long awaited follow up album this year.
6. Kid X
Kid X is one rapper whose been pushing back the release of his debut album Thank Da King countless times. The album was originally expected to land sometime last year but the 88 king has been pushing it back. However, Kid X recently dropped Laundry Day Fresh which is the latest single off the album so we’re hoping we’ll finally get his debut album this year.
