When news broke that South Africa's lyricist, Stogie T was going to appear on one of the planet's biggest hip hop radio shows, Sway In The Morning, almost every hip hop head stood up in great anticipation.
Listening to Stogie spitting sizzling bars this morning confirmed what many of us had come to know about this award-winning hip hop genius; he has bars for days.
One can't help but wonder why it took Stogie, real name Tumi Molekane, this long to secure an interview spot on this glorious international radio show. However, we are proud that it happened at this point in his life.
Got the opportunity to go on @realsway Universe to represent for my culture, my country, my fallen comrades that BUILT this genre in South Africa and most of all for the future stars that will continue to fly our flag high long after we are gone. This moment is not lost on me. Hip Hop has given me my friends, politics, career and family. I can only hope to give back to what has given me so much. Some of the most prominent rappers I started rapping with have transitioned to the afterlife and others to another life. I hope you're proud. Check the interview out LINK IN BIO.
