Own The Block bringing real Hip Hop back


The Own The Block (OTB) battle rappers who will officially be competing in the Own The Block rap battle league were announced this past weekend on Saturday 12th August 2017 to a widespread audience in Cape Town at The Loft included the city’s most respected and up and coming artists.

Own The Block was started by childhood friends, Tyler The Instigator and YoungstaCPT to provide a platform for rappers to showcase their skills and lyrical abilities to the rest of South Africa and the world. The brand is recognised as leaders in South African battle rap and is the only street rap battle league in the country. Rap battles take place on street corners and at numerous well-known locations around Cape Town and takes the viewers to a new setting for every rap battle which is then broadcasted as episodes on the #OwnTheBlock YouTube channel and the crowd decides the winner.

So when they ask, “what happened to rap?” It is now safe to say, Own The Block has brought real hip hop back and has positioned themselves as an entertainment company and will feature the elite battle rappers in every city! With the main focus on rap battles OTB will offer two main services which include rap battles and live performances. The OTB rappers that made the final selection are Imie Vanie Delft, Mykey, Jamie Palm, Sir Kir, The Kulture, Infinite Line, Mafatsheng, KTH King and Raykin J.
