SA Hip Hop star Boity reacts after she was criticized for her “Mbuzi” freestyle which fans felt was disrespectful to AKA and Costa Titch.
Boity has been slaying freestyles, but the one she did over AKA’s “Mbuzi” beat has earned her criticism. In the freestyle, she raps, “First of all, R.I.P. to Supa Mega, who would’ve thought that a rapper of his stature will be taking a bullet through the head”
“And that sh*t came right after Riky Rick, and after that, we lost uCosta Titch. When y’all said hip-hop is dead, y’all used your tongues and spoke it into existence, damn.” Fans labeled it disrespectful to the late artists. Speaking to TimesLIVE, she defended her lyrics, saying,
“I didn’t lie in the song and I don’t think there was any form of disrespect. I just feel like people misunderstood what I said, but with regards to what I said didn’t lie,”
“We haven’t seen anything within the hip-hop space, and I was just stating facts, and I think that’s exactly what’s happening. I feel like there’s been a huge gap left open within South African hip hop and I am hoping that with my return I am filling that gap.”
