Hi Simpra. Thanks for your comment. We don't have any connections in the hip hop industry. But it's great that you'd like to pursue hip hop and perfect your skill. Continue to write rhymes and practice rapping and you'll get better and better at it good luck.

I finished my matric in 2017 with a diploma ,I'm in search of a learnership and really need a job while studying, I don't like it when I'm doing nothing especially sitting doing nothing at home,I sometimes feel like a failure because of me procrastinating while other people out there are hunting for learnerships,I know I've got potential buh I think I'm underestimating my potential
