[S01E05] Street Rap Battle | Cape Town Taxi Rank | Lyle Styles vs Jamie Palm

Last updated on: October 19th, 2018 at 02:01 pm

We bring you another installment of Own The Block as Lyle Styles makes his OTB debut representing Steenberg, takes on Jamie Palm (current Grand Parade OTB champion) from Woodstock at the Cape Town taxi rank located on the deck directly above the train station, the central hub for most commuters traveling in and out of the CBD.

Minibus taxis are a source of pride to most South Africans and they can be 90% cheaper than metered taxis. They also run everywhere and operate at all hours, but they have a terrible safety record as the South African Institute of Race Relations has measured that you are 3 times more likely to die in a minibus taxi accident than in a car, in general we do not recommend using minibus taxis as they are often problematic and hazardous on the road.

BUT that didn’t stop Own The Block from hosting a rap battle right there!
