It’s been a while since South Africa has produced a well-balanced hip hop group to carry on the legacy left by some of the popular rap crews – Skwatta Kamp and Teargas, to name a few.
However, the ridiculous hunger for success witnessed from the new and emerging local group, RawKRX, has impressed local as well as international hip hop fans.
Made up of three artists (Kaysolid, RemèOdd and RealX) with unimaginable talents, RawKRX’s combination of musical skills could be heard on their latest hot single, Balance.
At the brink of releasing their debut EP titled New.Wav, the talented trio – who are signed by one of South Africa and Africa’s leading publishing companies, Sheer Publishing – speaks to its generation and their music has a demanding effect on their listeners.
What sets them apart is their unquestionable dedication of the do-it yourself system; more interestingly, they have developed their own sound and hip hop style.
Described as ambitious, honest and passionate, RawKRX have grasped the intensity and pressure that comes with it. Judging by the hype on social media and having attracted international followers, it is safe to publicly admit that RawKRX is surely the group to look out for throughout this year.
