It is not everyday you come across a bond and appreciation so profound and special in the world of SA Hip Hop.
However, industry veteran, Reason is one OG who doesn’t shy away from stating the facts just the way he sees, feels or deems fit.
This is why he took his love and admiration for the younger Emcee to even deeper heights recently to celebrate his birthday as he walked down memory lane on how far he has come in the game, as well as predict even bigger things for his future on the circuit.
Reason wrote a glittering tribute alongside a photo of the duo:
“HAPPY GDAY @kidxsa !!! I MET YOU YEARS AGO WHEN U WERE STILL ANOTHER TALENTED LITTLE KID IN A RAP GROUP. THIS YEAR, I STAND NEXT TO YOU AS A MAN IN THE RAP GAME THAT INVENTED A STYLE SO AMAZING, YOU INFLUENCED YOUR IDOLS. ITS ONLY BEEN ABOUT 5 YEARS SINCE THEN, SO ONLY THE LORD KNOWS WHAT YOU’LL BE IN THE FUTURE. I WONDER ABOUT THIS EVERY SINGLE TIME I HEAR A NEW VERSE FROM YOU. AND AS THE ARTIST I’VE RECORDED THE MOST SONGS WITH THIS YEAR… YOU CAN COUNT HOW MANY TIMES IVE WONDERED ABOUT WHERE YOUR BRILLIANCE IS HEADED. I THANK GOD FOR YOUR LIFE BRO!!! YOU ARE A BLESSING IN DISGUISE. TO THIS WHOLE SHIT!!! I JUST CANT WAIT FOR THE GREAT REVEAL!!!!”
Such brotherhood and camaraderie isn’t one that’s often too common in a world of the call outs, beef, shades, jabs, shots and punches.
