In recognition of the new wave, MTV Base, since last year, follows up their main Hottest SA MCs List with Hottest MCs New Wave.
As is always the case every year, the list was decided upon by a panel of insiders who are clued up on South African hip-hop.
This year’s panel members were: DJ Nikki Newlands, music curator Kabelo Makhudu, DJ Zan D, writer Misa Narrates, event MC and presenter Uncle Vinny and journalist Jade Kelly. The panel was hosted by MTV Base presenter and rapper Tshego Koke.
Below is the final list:
