SA’s Hottest MCs of 2016 List Revealed


The full list of SA’s Hottest MCs of 2016 has officially been revealed.

MTV Base Roundtable: SA’s Hottest MCs 2016, a no-holds-barred top 10 countdown curated and compiled by MTV Base and SA Hip Hop industry giants was aired in two episodes.

The panel included by seasoned Hip Hop head, Proverb, with input and insights from veteran MC and producer Amu, UJFM 16BarsRELOADED’s host Spoken Priestess, DJ & producer DJ Capital, legendary rapper and label head Slikour, SA Hip Hop Awards’ supremo Rashid Kay.

Master lyricist Tumi was also on hand, sharing and explaining the 6 key criteria that the panelists weighed up: impact, lyrics, sales, buzz, style and other ‘intangibles’ that make them stand out from the crowd.


Comfortably seated at the number one spot was the musician who almost sold out a 40,000 arena Cassper Nyovest. This feat makes it twice in a roll.

Although it sounds more like a welcoming news fans of Cassper, many have asked why his biggest contender AKA took the 5th spot.

Other artists on the list include Ricky Rick, Fifi Cooper, Gigi Lamayne, A-Reece and others.
