L'tido has taken to social media to let Mzansi know that SA rap legend Amu doesn't get enough credit for paving the way for hip-hop.
The Act Crazy hitmaker forced his way into the music scene when Kwaito was still dominant on radio and TV.
In 2010, Amu released his second album titled The Principal, through his independent record label. That project earned him the Best Rap Album at the South African Music Awards.
The star was signed by Ghetto Ruff in 2003 and he dropped his debut album titled The Rap, Life, and Drama.
L'tido, who has been in the rap game for a minute now, believes that Amu is one of the most underrated rappers in Mzansi.
"Amu doesn’t get enough credit for paving the way for local hip hop… Give that man his f*cken flowers. Why we always gotta wait till someone dies before we show appreciation???"
The We Rolling hitmaker's fans seemed to agree with him.
"This is true. I remember this one time in those hip-hop talk shows back in the day they were talking about how Kanye changed the game with samples and I thought to myself ‘Have you not heard of Amu?' "
"I like Amu a lot and I still listen and buy his music too."
