- A troll tried to shade Da L.E.S for not contributing enough to the Mzansi hip-hop scene
- Da L.E.S' fans defended him from the naysayer and told her that the rapper is one of the pioneers of SA hip-hop
Da L.E.S trended on social after a troll tried to shade his contribution to the Mzansi hip-hop scene. Mzansi tweeps defended the rapper from the naysayer who tried to drag him for not doing anything for the South African genre of sounds.
The hater took to Twitter on Tuesday, 10 November and asked Mzansi what impact the musician has had on shaping the ever-growing Mzansi hip-hop scene. The troll @i_iamkhanyi asked:
"Let's be honest, what did Da L.E.S give us?!?"
Tweeps flooded @i_iamkhanyi's comment section to defend the North God. They were indeed honest with their answers as she had asked. They told her a lot of good things that Da L.E.S has done to change the game.
Some tweeps mentioned that L.E.S made Ama Kip Kip T-shirts and All White Parties fashionable. Some peeps shared some of the big songs that the Tippy Toes hitmaker has dropped. Check out some of the comments from Da L.E.S fans below:
"He legit made us go wild over Ama Kip Kip T-shirts. Da L.E.S is one of the curators of SA hip hop."
"First of all Da L.E.S is one of the people that laid a foundation for SA hip hop, he is one of the way makers and he is also one of the first to associate clothing with music in the rap game through Ama Kip Kip... Ama Kip Kip was once the biggest T-shirt brand in this country."
"That man invented ALL WHITE."
"Nah, don’t do that to L.E.S. He’s one of the most important figures in the South African music industry, not just hip hop. His contribution to SA pop culture is crazy, he was the bridge for SA to Africa, brought swag to the industry and a lot of international awareness to the scene."
"Jozi? We On Fire? Tippy Toes? All in an era when hip-hop in South Africa was for the outliers?? Respect the North God!"
