As you know, the best attended hip hop show in the country is happening this Friday (27 April) at Bree and Henry Nxumalo under the bridge in Newtown. Make sure to get your presold tickets from the Ritual Store for R50 or on the day (we advise that you do it prior since those lines can get pretty crazy) for R60. So far, the lineup includes:
HHP, AKA, Tuks, Zakwe, Pro, Zubz, Red Button, L-tido, Blaklez, Substance, Nveigh, Clu, Khanyi Mavi, Federation, Siya Shezi, Neo Beatz, 3rd Wave, Optical Illusion, J-Bux, Hymphatic Thabz, Robo, Hisham, MThlati, Morale, Kwesta, Articulate Artist, Substance, Dotcom, Reason, J Stash, SCF, Youngsta, Adisa Baba, Endzi, Ill Skillz, Gini Grindith, Township Frequency, Spaza shop Boyz
At R60 for all those artists, this is bound to be one of the most epic events of the year. The organisers are hinting that there is an additional surprise act that they may or may not be releasing prior to the event. Hmmm… Who do yall think it could be?
