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

Instagram

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.

The Economic Freedom Fighters’ boss, Julius Malema, jumped (via Twitter) into the fray and promised a ‘weak’ Fifi Cooper justice through the courts…

…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.

After mentioning it on The Breakfast Club in the USA, Cassper Nyovest is trying to fill Soccer City to capacity on Saturday 2 December.

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

Grammys

In a year that was ‘meh’ for hip-hop, the Grammys, put their nominations out for the 2018 edition of the awards. And, accordingly, all the best rap albums of 2017 were nominated (all but one).

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.
