Zim Hip Hop

List of Top Zimbabwean Rappers

Known locally and regionally as Zim Hip Hop music, Zimbabwean rappers of southern Africa have constructed, a medium size, but growing rap scene of Zimbabwean hip hop music. With connections and possibly inspiration from the larger market of hip hop in South Africa, Zimbabwean rap music is among Africa’s top rising hip hop scenes.

One of Africa’s most beautiful countries, from the urban landscape of Bulawayo and Harare to the Zimbabwean countryside, Zimbabwe has a lot to offer to the outside world. One thing is the various native and indigenous sounds and instruments, as well the more popular genres of music like Sungura.

While every country of Africa has its own distinct culture of music, Zimbabwe also has a large favoritism towards commercialized and urban music, like Afropop, Dancehall, also known as Zimdancehall, and of course Zim Hip Hop music. Among Zimbabwe’s urban music scene is a slew of Zimbabwean rappers, some view as national stars, while others are up and coming Zim hip hop artists.

These top Zim hip hop artists include the leading lady Kikky Badass with her strong approach and unbreakable rhymes, alongside Zimbabwean rappers like the vibrant and melodic Takura, the sporadic styles of Voltz JT, and Holy Ten who has the ability to connect with fans on any level. Altogether with the leading Zimbabwean hip hop artists, is a handful other rappers that are not only making an impact within Zimbabwean music, but have also crossed over into other markets, like South Africa, the U.K., and other southern African countries. While Afrobeats has stolen the show, African hip hop music is on a rise, and Zimbabwe is at the forefront.
