AKA, Khuli Chana & Tumi Molekane are the rappers, that have been announced as Vuzu Amp’s The Hustle judges.
The show which focuses on unearthing the next big rap star in South Africa, is set to bring something new and fresh to the rap game.
The rappers who are obviously excited about being part of this great show, had something to say.
Tumi, known from Tumi and the Volume, told V-Entertainment: “The shrinking of the world has made it very possible for various ways to get on. I think a show like The Hustle is a really legit way to get on as an MC or as an artist that’s trying to get on, trying to get your music out, trying to get your voice out.”
AKA who is up for a BET nomination had this to say: “I think it’s a great platform to unearth new talent. I was just having a conversation saying maybe 10 years ago it wouldn’t have been possible and it’s great that South African hip hop music is at a point where we can do shows like this.”
He also went on to say that the reason that he was attracted to the show is because he definitely can offer what he knows to the upcoming new artists.
Khuli Chana had this to say: “The game needs a show like this, the game needs the next rap star. The game needs a guy to push the envelope, the game now needs a guy who’s gonna compete at the highest level, world class, world class rapper. Yeah, we’re responsible for unearthing, finding that dude. That’s why I’m here.”
We can’t wait for when the show kicks off on the 14th of July on Vuzu Amp. The three judges are all accomplished in their own right, and we can’t wait to see the talent that they unearth.
