Hi, I'm Sy Savage(real name Lenin Sihle Rampeng) and I'm a rapper, musician and songwriter. Born on the 28th of September 1996 in Worcester, Western Cape where I grew up and lived most my life. I grew up in a house filled with music cassettes and CD's and that's where my love for music began. From Kwaito, to Gospel(though I didn't listen to it that much), to afro pop, to South African Jazz and Hip Hop. Started writing my own music at the age of 9 and I've been at it ever since. Started recording at the age of 13 and released my first track under the crew "Intellectual Techniques" but due to the passing of my mother, my passion for music hit its lowest till the point where I decided to take a long break from music(but continued writing). Moved to East London, Eastern Cape at the age of 13/14, moved back to Worcester at the age of 16/17 where my love for music was revived. Started recording again and released my first solo single "Lyrical Psycho" which got me recognition as a musician in my town and amongst my peers. Released a few more tracks that got me a bit of following from all over South Africa. In 2015 I released a single titled "Untitled" which grew my fan-base even further and as many say was my breakthrough into the underground music scene. In 2016 I relocated to Johannesburg, Gauteng as a way to push my music as a career and I'm still grinding to make that dream a reality. So as I partake ona journey to get my music heard, I got one question for you. CAN I COUNT ON YOUR SUPPORT??? www.soundcloud.com/SySavage6852 www.facebook.com/SySavage6852 www.twitter.com/@Sy_Savage For bookings/Enquiries: sysavage6852@gmail.com / 0798085987 ‪#‎TheSavageTeam‬ ‪#‎KINGSAVAGE‬

As the Hiphop culture continues to give birth to new talent, few up and comers have the capabilities and delivery that BigMeat possesses. Drawing comparison to artist such as Drake ,Jayz ,Nas ,J-cole,and The Game it’s easy to understand why a buzz has been created. BigMeat (Sunny Malaza) was born in Mpumalanga on the 06 August 1990 in a small township called Elukwatini. He was raised by a single mother with his two older sisters and brothers. “I grew up listen to hip hop at a young age and funny thing is no one in my family really followed hiphop or undesrstood it” said Bigmeat. Growing up as the youngest child that loved rap music created a challenge for him because he had no guidance or someone he can rely on for a second opinion. In 2009 BigMeat (Sunny Malaza) started writing real bars and participating in cyphers around his neighbourhood, which was the only thing that kept him motivated and gave him a challenge The following year he met a friend, they started a band but it was not a success because they had to part ways after matriculating. 2011 he then moved to Johannesburg and continued with his writing while he had a side job that paid his bills, that same year he decided to work on his first project called ‘Invisible in jozi ‘.One of his favourite songs he wrote was called “Alupheli” which was also not a success in the market as he had no management and marketing resources A couple of years later he started working on his second project(Mixtape) called ‘1192’ with a band called Kluster Network Group .He was still not signed under any label but he worked under Kluster as an individual artist, he had his up’s and downs but that did not put him down in anyway . The rapper still delivers and intends to bring more to the table and as for his plans for the future, he believes that he will be the best writer they’ll ever be…….

I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN AN ALL-BLACK SURBURB CALLED KWAMAGXAKI (K.M.G.) IN PORT ELIZABETH. GRADE ONE TO GRADE TWO I DID AT SIVUYISENI SECONDARY SCHOOL IN K.M.G FROM 1991-93, REPEATED GRADE THREE AT ALPHA PRIMARY SCHOOL IN GELVINDALE ALSO IN PORT ELIZABETH(93-94). FROM GRADE 4 TO MATRIC I WENT TO VICTORIA PARK GREY PRIMARY SCHOOL AND VICTORIA PARK HIGH SCHOOL BOTH SITUATED IN THE WALMER SUBURB (95-2003). IN 2004 I STUDIED JOURNALISM AT VARSITY COLLEGE, I DROOPED OUT IN 2007. I STARTED RAPPING AT THE AGE OF SIXTEEN AND AT THE AGE OF NINETEEN I RECORDED FOR THE FIRST TIME AND STARTED PERFORMING AROUND PE WITH A HIGH SCHOOL FRIEND; PHUMEZO XHOZWA a.k.a. MONSTAR DOE; WE CALLED OURSELVES TWO MEN JIVE. IN 2008 I STARTED MAKING BEATS, AT THE SAME TIME I WAS INVOLVED IN A RADIO TALK SHOW FOR YOUTH CALLED SWEET POISON FOR A LOCAL COMMUNITY RADIO STATION CALLED KQUBELA FM; THE SHOW BASICALLY FOCUSED ON THE YOUTH AND SEX. THE FOLLOWING YEAR I LANDED A ROLE IN RADIO DRAMA; CALLED AZANG’DLALE FOR UMHLOBO WENENE FM. THE PRODUCTION WAS WRITTEN BY THE SAME FRIEND I CONCEPTUALISED SWEETPOISON WITH; Bongani Singcu. BONGANI AND I WENT TO FORM A HIP-HOP CREW AND WE CALLED IT K.M.G KHRONIK AFTER FINDING A THIRD MEMBER; KHANYISO MDA a.k.a. DADAMAN. WE REALESED A TAPE THAT TOOK US TO ALL LOCAL HIP-HOP SESSIONS AROUND PE AND EVEN GRAHAMNSTOWN. IN 2010 BONGANI WENT TO JOHANNESBURG, SO DADAMAN AND I WERE LEFT TO MAKE BEATS AND RECORD FREESTYLE JUST TO KEEP THE FIRE BURNING. LATER THAT YEAR WE WERE INVITED TO SEVERAL SESSIONS, BUT THE ONE THAT STOOD OUT WAS WHEN POWER OF THOUGHT AND SAFARI (JOBURG BASED RAPPERS) WERE TOURING PE. SO WE JOINED THE TOUR UNTIL WE HEARD OF THESE NEW SESSIONS THAT WERE GOING DOWN EVERY THURSDAY AT CLUB CALLED DNE. THE SESSIONS WERE CALLED BRING IT TO THE CYPHER WHICH WERE HOSTED BY THE LATE-GREAT BOZACK NGOMANE, DURING THESE SESSION DADAMAN AND I STARTED ANOTHER RAP CREW CALLED CAN OF WORMZ (C.O.W.) WITH A NEW THIRD MEMBER; LONWABO BUDAZA a.k.a BRAIN MATTER. WE SOMEHOW ATTENDED THE CYPHER SO MUCH WE STARTED HOSTING AND DJING, THE CLUB OWNER (DAVID MAGAWON) LIKED OUR STEEZ SO MUCH THAT HE STARTED INVITING US TO DUBSTEP AND DRUM N BASS PARTIES THE CLUB HOSTED DURING THE WEEKEND. THE BRING IT TO THE CYPHER SESSIONS WERE THE LONGEST RUNNING SESSIONS IN THE HIP-HOP HISTRY OF PE. IN THAT DURATION WE AS CAN OF WORMZ REALESED THE GREATEST CONCEPTUALISED HIP-HOP ALBUMS SINCE GROUNDWORX IN MY OPINION; ‘NARCOTIC TOPIX’ ( FOR FREE DOWNLOAD GO TO www.soundcloud.com/sangoma-metal ) IN 2012 I BECAME A FATHER, SO NOW THINGS NEEDED TO CHANGE, I WENT TO JOHANNESBURG AND WITH MY CURRENT BUSINESS PARTNER; EVL JON; STARTED A TRASH AND THRIFT BUSINESS. WHICH WAS SOLEY BASED ON THE FACT THAT HE IS ONE THE BEST VISUAL ARTISTS IN JOHANEBURG AND TRASH IS HIS PRIZED MEDIUM. AND I HAVE BEEN THRIFTING SINCE 2010, BY THE TIME I GOT JOBURG I HAD A LOT OF SECOND HAND CLOTHES SO I STARTED THE THRIFT BUSINESS. IN OCTOBER 2012 I WENT BACK HOME TO SEE MORE OF MY SON, WHEN I GOT BACK TO PE THE BRING IT TO THE CYPHER WERE STILL GOING DOWN. BY MID 2013 I BECAME AN OFFICIAL RESIDENTIAL DJ AT DNE (THE CLUB THAT HOSTED THE SESSIONS)AFTER OPENING UP FOR SIBOT AT ONE OF THE FAMOUS REDBULL CLUB NIGHTS TOURS. SINCE THEN I HAVE BEEN PERFECTING MY CRAFT OF MAKING BEATS, TO THE POINT THAT I HAVE DEVELOPED A SOUND I CALL SANGOMA METAL, I HEAD THE MUSIC DIVISION CALLED F.E.A.L.L U.S.B (Feel Extraordinary Amongst Lost Losers Universal Satanic Bus) F.E.A.L.L U.S.B. MUSIC DIVISION IS UNDER/PART OF ANIMAL ROBOT THUG (A.R.T.) A PRODUCTION COMPANY THAT’S PROMOTES AND PRODUCES ART AND ARTISTS. IT’S HEADED BY EVL JON AND I, WE MAKE COMICS, MUSIC VIDEOS ALL CREATIVE ENDEVOURS PERTAINING TO VISUAL, AUDIO AND LIFE ARTS.
