Introducing Tembisile: A young rapper from Cape Town bringing new wave raps to the coastal city
When Hip Hop fans look for the freshest new acts with a modern sound, they often choose to focus solely on Gauteng as a region and not so much the Western Cape. And when they do focus on the Western Cape, they only limit their searches to Cape Town. It is no secret that Cape Town acts often struggle to successfully break into the greater South African Hip Hop entertainment industry, which is headquartered in Johannesburg. On the electronic music side of things, Cape Town tops all of the big metros in South Africa.
Young acts who are on the come up like J Molley, The Big Hash, KC The Plug, Champagne 69 and PatrickxxLee in Johannesburgs, are becoming crowd favourites in Gauteng and their strength of their names is extending well into other provinces in South Africa. Cape Town has it’s very own response to the new wave that is dominating South African Hip Hop headed by teens with ages ranging from 16 to 19. Cape Town based rapper, Tembisile, is a talent to look out for if you’re looking for innovative and progressive rap that depicts the current times. With a unique cadence and wordplay style, he packs enough heat to draw the listener in. Don’t sleep on this kid.
