OWN THE BLOCK is back! This week we taking it to the grimy streets of Wynberg in Cape Town, right on the taxi rank is where the battle will go down. Wynberg is home to the outspoken Cape Town-born rapper, Youngsta. Youngsta aka YoungstaCPT is well-known for his harsh and factual lyrical capabilities which have earned him immense street credit, but on the contrast have also resulted in him not being recognised in the mainstream however, times are changing and the rapper is undoubtedly one of the realest MC’s in the SA Hip Hop industry. As Wynberg taxi rank is the chosen location, who better to have HOST the rap battle than the boy himself, YoungstaCPT.
The taxi rank attracted a solid crowd amongst others, taxi drivers, “gaatjies” and street vendors, who all gathered to see the young emcees – Equinox from Plumstead, take on Storm CPT from Steenberg (both of which happens to be their first rap battle) all for the love of hip hop.
