Mzansi Hip-Hop

The once-fledgling Mzansi hip-hop scene has exploded recently, with major stars like AKA, Cassper Nyovest and Nasty C taking the music far beyond the country's borders. Whether they’re built on hip-shaking rhythms, Afrobeats-infused beats or skittering trap drums, these are the hottest new tracks in South Africa's hip-hop arsenal. We regularly update this playlist—if you hear something you like, add it to your library.
