On the 1st of July 2017, we took a trip back to the home of the Hip Hop Cares Foundation, Limpopo Burgersfort for Hip Hop Cares VI which was hosted by Slabsta and Tshepang Gosebo Mokgari. We caught up with the Founder Dizz Kekana and he explained the importance of hip hop music and giving back to the community.
“Our charity foundation draws its power from hip hop and thats how important and relevant it is to culture. The capacity the artform has to bring people together. Hip hop cares VI #socool is about affirming the way of life that is hip hop.” – Dizz Kekana
The night was filled with performances by local talents, Fess, Immo Kid, Pearly Hooks, Turm, Ab Stun and many more.
In an effort to preserve hip hop culture, this event featured a top 8 Rap battle with a grand prize of R1000. The rap battle featured, Oz, Monster Saint, King Solomon, Classic, Krazy H and Junior. After rounds of heated battles Junior emerged the King of bars and flows winning 1st place.
You have to admire the foundations tireless efforts to consistently shine a light on Hip Hop and drawing positivity out of the contervisail culture.
