Rapper Rouge has explained that it's extremely difficult to remain humble at all times as a hip hop artist as rap is essentially about bragging. The female emcee was responding to a fan who wanted to know if we could ever associate humbleness with hip hop culture.
Rouge said, "Humble does not exist in hip hop, if I'm being honest. Just the lyrics alone is us hyping ourselves all the time. If anything, supporters love the most cocky ones. The support can be so much more. It's not where it should be. #Senzenina (What should we do?)"

The tweep also wanted to know if Mzansi rappers are unified and give each other enough support. Rouge said there is so much more support that they could give each other as South African rappers.
Mzansi hip hop fans are getting ready for an epic period for the genre as three major artists are releasing their albums this month. A-Reece, Nasty C and Cassper Nyovest have all announced that they'll be releasing in August. It will be interesting to see which album fans deem the best, particularly since there is a bit of beef between the talented and iconic rival rappers.
