SA rappers are not pushing the boundaries of collaborations enough. There are no daring, eye-raising hype when it comes to pairing musicians up for a feature; at least not in this country anyway.
“My first album had no famous guest appearances, the outcome… I’m crowned the best lyricist,” – Nasir Jones said this in 2001 talking about “Stillmatic”. Fast-forward to 2012 SA hip-hop – albums are promised and delivered. As for collaborations however they are few and far between.
