#HYPEFreshman2017 Re-Cap – Champ

Coming from a small town like Mthatha or PMB , where it’s rare for any artist to be on any of the major media platforms or even being based in Durban where we only see one or two rap artists shine roughly every 5 years. Being on the Hype freshman edition & gracing the cover has not only afforded me more opportunities but it has given my people some hope. Hope that nothing is impossible. Among-st everything I also got invited to the Annual KZN music Imbizo where I was a speaker in the Hip Hop panel that consisted of Osmic, Benza , DJ Lab(Gagasi fm) & artist from Kenya if I’m not mistaken. It’s really been a good look & I feel more responsible to take things farther , lift my city & the brand of music/message that I bring to the table. S/O to you for believing & unearthing fresh talent. All the best to this year’s freshman, stay true to yourself , pave your own lane , create a fan base that’s unique & closer to your true self” – Champ
