- Scoop Makhathini is trending on social media for sharing his thoughts about the hip-hop game
- He said that certain artists should take a break from making music because they have nothing new to say
- Mzansi social media users had mixed reactions about his opinion and weighed in with their comments
Scoop Makhathini says that AKA, Cassper and Kwesta should go a year without releasing anything. The media personality was speaking in a video clip shared on Twitter. The footage has resulted in Scoop's name trending on the social media platform.
"I feel that there are a lot of new guys who we are not playing who are making much better music."
The media personality said that the old faces had nothing new to say, and no new way of saying what they wanted to say.
Social media users weighed in on his opinion with differing thoughts. Twitter user MagentsHola said:
"Scoop is talking out of his booty."
"Cassper was on Amapiano and Kwaito for a while, that was his break. The guy has a lot to say, he's gonna be father. Mufasa give us bangers bro..."
"J.COLE warned us about gate keepers in hip-hop the "would you take a break please rapper" crew. That is absurd, let the people decide by buy 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."
"There's room for everyone, nobody needs to take a break and give anybody a chance. Music is universal, everyone enjoys different type of music and it serves many different purposes."
"His favourite rapper is AKA and he is disappointed with the garbage AKA has been dropping. Kwesta and Cass was just dragged just so it wouldn't sound like he is dragging AKA. We see him."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported on South African hip-hop artists who have been putting in the work despite the uncertainty brought on by the year 2020.
