For years, Siz n Scoop together with their revered show, The Full Clip, have laid a strong foundation in hip hop and a successful platform for upcoming artists who graced their studios to be a part of the hottest weekly hip hop show in all of Africa. Sadly the show took its final bow on 27 March…
The final show with Sizwe Dhlomo was truly epic, with more than 150 rappers from all over Gauteng as well as respected industry players showing up to bid farewell to one of best hip hop shows of all time. Unsigned rappers were very upset and emotional, with no other alternative radio show on the same level to debut their work any longer. At the last show Sizwe, without his partner in crime Scoop, came with his exercise book containing a number of songs he’d written before he moved up to JHB from KZN, surprising his fans with his lyrical skills as he got into character as Scatter Brain and blessed everyone with a dope live performance, murking it solid.
Siz had been the co-host of the show at YFM for 5 years and officially left due to internal programme changes at the station. It’s really sad to see the show bow out, as it was one of the biggest platforms that signed and unsigned local rappers had where they got mad exposure with no limit. As Sizwe used to say “If it’s hot, we play it”. The show discovered the likes of Kid X, Micky M, One Way, Axe Ray and Ginger TRILL…
Chatting with Sizwe he told HYPE that it had been a wonderful experience to work at YFM and help to get rappers signed, furthering their careers in the industry. “I thank everyone who was supporting the show and the love we were getting. Wishing all the best to you there my ninjas.” He said it was more than just doing a show; he was very happy to see some of the rappers going on to do TV or get playlisted on other radio stations and said he’d be happier if they went on to win awards like the SAMAs. Producer of the show, Khathu, promised to continue supporting upcoming rappers by including their tracks on his mixes, as he too is a DJ.
Salute to R-Senic, Devel-Gravetown, Raptile, Chippa M, Sbuda P, Enza, Maraza, Remedy, Scar, Eugene Singer, Bonafide, Psycho Lution, Lolo & K Dawg, Khashan, Sibu, Micky M,Thulani Khumalo, 4biden, One Way & BBB. Their performances were epic.
And as for the future of Siz, he’ll be joining another radio station soon… stay tuned.
