A pioneering fixture in hip hop for the past fifteen years, rap royalty Priddy Ugly is set to take the Marabi Club stage in Johannesburg on Friday 17 May 2024 for a performance of epic proportions.

This celebration comes off the back of the release of the anticipated album DUST in January 2024 – the third instalment of a genre-defining trilogy that has spawned modern day classics including ‘Soil’, ‘1632’, ‘Mosha’ and Song of the Year candidate ‘Ntja’ka’.

In a heartfelt statement in December 2023, the thirty-three year-old vet expressed his gratitude saying, “I am incredibly grateful for the support and love I’ve received throughout my career. DUST is my way of saying thank you and bidding farewell to this chapter of my life. I hope it resonates with my fans and leaves a lasting impact.”

The critically acclaimed album featuring guest appearances including MashBeatz, Maglera Doe Boy, Blxckie, Thato Saul and K.Keed has since topped multiple charts, and also incited Hip hop Album of the Year discussions among peers, music authorities and media since its release.
