Sizwe Dhlomo, MTV Base and the rest of the Roundtable hip hop panel completely shut down Twitter yesterday. As you'll recall, yesterday we previewed the MTV Base Round Table: SA's Hottest MC's 2014. We were excited to begin with, especially after seeing some of the high profile names on the panel. However, even we couldn't anticipate the sheer buzz that this show would generate both online and on the Twitter streets. Let's quickly recap everything we saw yesterday. 

Why the MTV Roundtable? 

Let's face it, it's been a great year for SA Hip Hop. We can't just have any old person deciding who's the top rapper in the game at the moment though, we need a panel of educated and unbiased hip hop lovers to thrash it out. MTV Base has put together an impressive panel, spearheaded by Sizwe Dhlomo whose task it was to find SA's top 10 rappers. 

How do they judge? 

The MTV Base Roundtable panel will be judging Mzansi rappers based on the following criteria:
