The 6th Annual South African Hip Hop Awards 2017 will be taking place on the 13th of December at the Lyric Theatre in Gold Reef City.

Nominees were announced earlier this year with Casper Nyovest leading the pack of nominations.

These awards aim to give recognition to the cream of the crop in hip hop genre.

Now in its sixth year, this year’s event promises yet another stellar line up of performances at the main event.

Founder of the SA Hip Hop awards Osmic Menoe says they look at the criteria of the body of work one has put in for the last 12 months.
