Heavy K Sets The Record Straight To Why He Rides On His Own Hype “Yall Better Respect My Name” – The Drum Boss Heavy K has been dominating the SA music scene and continues to do so without fail.
Although there was a time when Heavy K gave up on producing beats due to his mentor and idol told him he was no good at his music, that was of course before the fame. In the previous years, he would berg people to respect him and give him the platform he felt deserved.
Riding your own hype is there best thing ever! No one in these streets would say staff like Heavy-K used who & who to be relevant nha boy one man band literally..99% of my hits I produced them myself 100% with no help or association from any producer! that says alot about me.
In 2015 the star criticised songbird Bucie’s acceptance speech at the SA Music Awards for not acknowledging his contribution to her career, despite the award being for the Best Female Artist. Heavy K said that he eventually learnt he needed to respect himself and let his music do the talking.
