“I’m super excited about the launch of the monthly African Edition of Rap Life Radio with Ebro on Apple Music. This is a phenomenal way to kick off 2022! It’s going to be magical! I’ve watched South African hip-hop grow from its infancy to a really commercial space here and it’s been a beautiful journey to witness. Watching it from a continental perspective has also been really exciting, African hip-hop is really taking up space! I’m excited about the likes of Blxckie, KashCPT and LucasRaps,” says LootLove.
