Slikour: I made hip-hop

Johannesburg - Prepare yourselves, world! Slikour could be on the verge of a comeback!

The former Skwatta Kamp member has always been outspoken about the state of hip-hop, and even started a website dedicated to the craft.

So it's safe to say that he is one, if not THE, authority on local hip-hop. But did you know that he actually made SA hip-hop?

"I didn't get into hip-hop, I made hip-hop," he says. "I was with the team that made hip-hop," Slikour told DJ Capital on CliffCentral this week.

Proclaiming himself as "the future", Slikour says he hasn't turned his back on recording new material, and instead has an album worth of material waiting to drop.

"I'm always writing... I got some guys that I like what they do musically so I might just drop a four-five track EP online," he reveals.  

Slikour says the motivation behind his work is to not be forgotten.

"No one wants to be seen as a 'used to'. I've created my own place in this space. I would rather have that because I am alive than always been seen as -and with all due respect - I don't want to be seen like HHP where people see them for the great things they have done. We were helping HHP at that time and I'm still helping people today," he says.
