Rappers who released their own apparels in 2016

2016 saw another great year for the South African hip hop industry from back to back hits, awards and sold out shows, we guess it's safe to say that some rappers will be ending off the year with some seriously swollen wallets.

What is also evident is the merchandise market that rappers have tapped into lately. It first started off with one or two rappers promoting their own branded merchandise but throughout the year we've seen more rappers sell their own apparel than they did their music.

Here is some branded merchandise from local rappers that saw many fans part with their hard earned cash to have a piece of their favourite rappers.

Riky Rick x Sidlukotini Killers Merch

He may be the South African Gucci Don but Riky Rick is also about pushing his own brand of merchandise. Sidlukotini Killers is already making a lot of noise within the industry and with his fans base.

If the artwork looks familiar to you it's because the design was inspired by 90's hip-hop label - Death Row.

We'd definitely buy this merch.

Maraza x Gwan Merch

Inspired by the success of his smash hit single Gwan' Maraza took the opportunity of riding the hype of his song by creating a number of Gwan t-shirts, jackets and caps which really look pretty dope!

Anatii x The Artiifact Merch

After the release of his critically acclaimed album, Artiifact Anatii not only gifted his fans with an Artiifact tour but also sold some really sick merchandise during the tour.

Kwesta x Dakar Merch

Kwesta also had a great response with regards to his merchandise. The design of his t-shirts are from his Dakar III album.

AKA x SuperMega Merch

AKA even created a pop-up store which sold out within minutes.

Ma-E x Ghanda Ghanda Merch

The Township Counsellor blessed us with the Ghanda Ghanda merch too.

K.O x Korruption Merch

Inspired from his latest single Korruption, K.O also had the Korruption t-shirts on deck but we're not sure if they were out for sale or just for the music video.

Cassper is also not holding back on the merchandise movement which has seen him sell his brand at any opportunity he gets, from selling it to students during O-week to selling it at all his latest shows.
