After their win in HYPE’s Newcomers Delight section, Corner Joint Fam is still on the grind to break through the tough chains of the game. The group which consists of Siyabonga “CIA” Mquqo, Segopotso “SLK” Moabi, Lehlogonolo “LJ Lattrel” Moagi and Phemelo “SP” Sekgabi came together early 2012 to work on their first ever collaborative project, in the form of a mixtape titled Smash N Grab a street tape which helped their presence in the PTA rap scene.
Corner Joint Fam has a varied team of individuals with skill that compliments each other. They provide fresh music. “Our sound reaches and resonates with people from all the local townships and we try to keep a versatile approach with each project we work on.”
SP is the kasi Motswako, fun, light hearted MC while multilingual Xhosa rapper CIA has the ability to flip languages and flows easily. SLK is the new school, catch phrase, slick line rapper while LJ is the most versatile with his ability to tackle social issues and kick punch lines on a banging beat.
“Look out for our music video for our yet-to-be-released single called “Motswako” which is just about done. “Also as from 24 March we’re bringing back ‘Corner Joint Mondays’ where we drop new music every Monday. Our blog is also about to launch. All the info will be on there. We plan to make this year better than the last”
