Music is a universal language, not discriminating colour or creed, nor holding any prejudice. Without music, many of us would live more boring, less enriching lives. And, we happen to feel the same way about King Pie. If life was a blank A4 piece of paper – music would be the colouring pastels, and a Pie from King Pie would be the flavour.
Because South Africa has a massive Hip-Hop following, we’ve decided to share some of our music passion with all you Pie Lovers out there. Whether you’re jamming in the club, closing your eyes to your headphones or playing some beats in the comfort of your home – any album, artist or song can be perfectly accompanied by one of King Pie’s Mnandi-licious pies.
Here’s why we believe the following artists’ music to be as Mnandi-licious as a meal from King Pie.
The Mafikeng-born artist is an innovative musician, always looking for ways to grow and prosper, as an artist. Unlike others who have tried and failed, Cassper has found a formula that works for him, and both of his albums have gone platinum. Business seems to be booming for this South African Hip-Hop favourite.
Ever since Emtee released his debut single entitled “Roll Up”, in 2015, his career has sky-rocketed and the Ambitiouz Entertainment endorsed star has never looked back. Predominantly influenced by Trap music, Emtee specialises in hit making and has found his niche in creating catchy melodies and gimmicks over Trap beats.
The former Cashtime artist is as authentic as they come. Kid X’s idiosyncratic style of music is influenced by the sounds of Kwaito. With the perfect combination of Hip-Hop and Kwaito – KiD X delivers a sound that is uniquely him, and authentically raps in both English and vernacular.
Born Nsikayesizwe David Ngcobo, better known by his stage name, Nasty C, this artist is undoubtedly one of the hottest newcomers in the game. Ever since the young king made his debut on DJ Switch’s 2015 Hit, The Way It Go, he hasn’t taken a breather and doesn’t plan to – as we’ve all heard in his single, Hell Naw.
If there’s a rapper who’s been consistent with his craft, it’s Khuli Chana. The Motswako originator, is a Hip-Hop pioneer creating his own, original style of Hip-Hop. This artist is one who has stayed true to his craft – never attempting to conform.
So, next time you’re listening to one of these artists, and many other brilliant South African artists, whom we would gladly mention if space and time were of no consequence, step into one of our King Pie stores, and complement your beats with a Mnandi-licious pie.
