It’s been a Dope Week, right? While being Dope (Nation), hip-hop did all these things that you may have missed.
Fifi Cooper vs Ambitiouz Entertainment
Close to a year after announcing her departure from her label, The Motsako First Lady found herself in a precarious quagmire.
All through the week headlines ran about Fifi Cooper’s court battle against Ambitiouz Entertainment — her former label. The biggest thing that came out of that drama was that Fifi Cooper could no longer perform any songs she made under the label. And we all voiced our feels.
We have seen the injustice caused on Fifi Cooper by Ambitious Entertainment which is politically associated with the corrupt North West Premier, Supra Mahumapelo. We have contacted Fifi with the willingness to help her fight back against the corrupt & exploitative record company!

The Economic Freedom Fighters’ boss, Julius Malema, jumped (via Twitter) into the fray and promised a ‘weak’ Fifi Cooper justice through the courts…
We are always on the side of the weak and the dejected. Wipe your tears African Girl, very soon you will sing your beautiful songs again. Proper legal team is assembled to help #FifiCooper against the powerful. #JusticeForFifiCooper pic.twitter.com/uMiRMOZpHs

…because the owner of Ambitiousz’ owner also happens to be Supra Mahumapelo‘s younger brother.
For the third year in a row, Cassper Nyovest is attempting history. Abuti Fillup is making a play at the biggest stage in SA with his #FillUpFNBStadium campaign.
He claimed ‘bankruptcy’ and being broke after this undertaking, but we hope his friends Oskido, Black Coffee and Riky Rick don’t fail him now. That means Cassper Nyovest got ripped for nothing! #JustBuyATicketBroer
Jay-Z , the CEO of Hip-Hop, led the nominations this year with 8 out of 4:44. Kendrick Lamar also showed up among other nominees. And, for the umpteenth time, Lady Smith Black Mambazo was nominated for the Best World Music award, also. Paul Simon could not comment on this.
