Furthermore, conscious hip hop needs a major boost into the forefront of the world stage. This is what has fueled the initiative, creating a platform that showcases phenomenal hip hop artists with a message,” she continued.

It is easy to write or comment about the negative aspects of hip-hop music because controversy and infamy has proven to be a hot seller in this society. But, hip-hop artists who rap positively or about political, social or economic empowerment receive scant attention, ESAT plans to change this.

The Explore South Africa Tour will also assist conscious hip hop artists, fans and brands to enter into the South African market with the hopes of networking, sharing their love for the genre as well as learning the in and outs of the music business via the Future of Music Global Industry Panel of Experts.

US and South Africa Hip Hop Artists unite on the Explore South Africa Tour

“I became a hip-hop singer not for success or my own glory, but to be “The voice of the voiceless, Hip-hop in Africa needs to grow, we are the journalists for the people.” Hip hop Artist Moussa Lo, aka Waterflow

Has rap faded away from the lyrical concept of hip hop?

I can recall when themes of conscious rap ran rampant in hip hop music. Lyricists at their best, mixing their rhymes to topics on religion, aversion to violence, African American culture and advancement, the economy, or simple depictions of life in the projects/ghetto that reveal the struggle of ordinary people. Grandmaster Flash's "The Message" was an early and hugely influential political and conscious hip hop track, decrying the poverty, violence, and dead-end lives of the black youth of the time.

In 2011 most conscious hip hop artists have not attained the same level of commercial success as mainstream hip-hop, though there are some notable exceptions to this.

The Explore South Africa tour (ESAT) is a mass conscious music movement helping to not necessarily push out other forms of hip hop, but to allow conscious music artists their fare share in the mainstream marketplace.

Hip hop artists on the roster plan on bringing a message of hope, peace and harmony to the masses through the Explore South Africa tour (ESAT). “We can overcome the ever-growing trend towards negativity in Hip Hop and hold steadfast to positive beliefs and ideals while maintaining great success and influence,” a spokesperson for ESAT said.

Style: Rap, Hip Hop

The new wave West Coast Rapper brings geeked-up fire  to the streets of Compton. “It’s kinda real now..it’s got me shaking my head…the world’s gone crazy…they want control of our minds though, but I got something for em..they aint gettin mines though,” croons Ralphion on his hit single “Shaking My Head“…and can you blame him?! “Luckily, his skills and charisma are also intact. “Shaking My Head’” is an unadulterated exercise in pure flow with Ralphion scattering boasts and liquid west coast rap vowels over  an old school, alternately tinkling and snarling beat. A beat that even our grand parents can appreciate. It appears there is still hope for west coast rap and it’s name is Ralphion. Listen to “Shaking My Head” now.
