Maggz is one of the most talented hip hop stars in SA and has been serving fans his music for years now, unfortunately the rapper feels as though his work or rather contribution is being overlooked. In a current interview on Massiv Metro he said that fans don’t seem to appreciate or receive his work the way he expects hence the feel of irrelevance. He also expressed how stressful it can be to be in the hip hop world.
“Hip-hop sometimes can be stressful, you feel like you wanna quit and the fact that I’m still here after all these years and I didn’t quit….sometimes I’d release an album and things didn’t go my way. I guess fate was throwing me some other cards…it also shows my love for the game.”
Speaking on his life in hip-hop, Maggz went on to add that he felt that him not ‘gassing’ himself up might be a problem with his fans.
“Artists come and go in this era. I’ve maybe come to terms with the fact that hip-hop is ego based, it’s very macho and all that stuff, so I guess if you’re like a modest person sometimes people overlook you, maybe that’s been my problem, I’m not all over gassing myself. I’m a very confident person, but I’m not an arrogant person, maybe sometimes that impedes the way people look at me.”
Maggz went on to share that it doesn’t feel good for him to be overlooked in the industry, especially with all he’s contributed to the hip-hop community
“To be honest, it’s not a great feeling to be overlooked, especially when you know what you’ve done for the game, what you’re capable of…I always have this thing of, sometimes you have closet fans…these people will never show you love in public but they’ll show you love privately…”
