Photographs by David J

Noone reps CPT harder than Youngsta. We can no longer say the homie is on the comeup. Now a household name, the honcho of the YGeneration crew, Youngsta like it or not, is a force to be reckoned with. Below is an extract from an interview he did with Humans of South Africa. His comments of the Mother City vs Jsec…

In one of your songs Hella you talk about uniting the cities as in Johannesburg and Cape Town…..

The thing about Johannesburg and Cape Town is that Jhb has the industry and Cape Town has the art. If you look at how the hip hop scene in jhb was built, it was built by Capetonians- POC and Ready D, they took it from Cape Town, Mitchell’s Plain to Johannesburg. They build the first hip hop label, the first successful label, that was in the early nineties. I was born.
