Alright, a lot of people are pissed right now. Like some people genuinely upset after seeing some of the artists who were named in our previous lists of the hottest MCs around Africa. Today the spotlight is on Uganda, a nation that is rich in hip hop and music culture.
MTV Base spoke to Gloria Haguma, a fashion and pop culture expert in Uganda who revealed that hip hop and rap are thriving in the country.
“Hip Hop is the most consistent genre in Uganda. The genre has been getting more appreciation and recognition from the consumers, which has been a great boost to the industry.The artists have gone from just doing music, to starting fashion brands, e.g, Rapaholix, Ziva Muntuuyo, I'm So UG... etc. building brands, to using their status to help their communities. Also, hip hop is the only genre that has an award show that is 100% dedicated to the genre.”
With that in mind, the competition was tough for this list but here is the list of the hottest MCs in Uganda. Disagree with us? Let’s hash it out on these Twitter streets.
