'Hiphop Digest' with Liberty Pfumvuti



From the streets of Mbare to the big surburbans, local hiphop is on the move. ScripMulla, Takura, Junior Brown, Tehn Diamond, Trae Yung among the hottest names in the game today but a word keeps popping in my mind. Hero, word widely described by many in their own fitting ways. I describe it in this case as King Pinn, One of Zim's greatest. He came straight from the core of hiphop. He had the skill, from the lyrics to the delivery itself. Like all the greats, King Pinn left for heaven early, but he left tracks like "I Salute You", a track dedicated to our war heroes. His music has been played on radio for the better part of a decade now since his untimely death. He never fades ... he is hiphop locally, internationally ... I salute you King.
Jnr Brown is one of the biggest names in the game today. The "Tongogara" hitmaker came from Mbare wanted it all in the game . Let's say a rapper who had a vision to be heard locally .... he's a household name in the game, location Zim. And he's still going, shook the industry last year with his album featuring songs like Amen, Tongogara, We Run This among many others.
The local industry keeps growing by the day and it has incorporated artists like YoungNash, Tatea the MC and Marcques formed the famous MMT with Mariachi dropping songs like Zvidhori, Takura whose songs Maobama, Mungandidii and Zino Irema took the industry by storm with ScripMulla's Christopher Columbus.
