nonetheless i will mention some cats who are really hardcore with this.
top of list: P.O.C cause no matter who you is these cats put in work in term's of that real undiluted sound and pro-revolutionary stance for mad years.
Robo the Technician
Shorty Skillz (formerly of Township Frequency now his with Witchcraft)
Bravestar (formerly of Electronz)
and last but not least - Basemental Platform (BMP) - these cats been doing the rounds in the underworld for minute...
off cause there's been other cats or the are but mostly they finding their feet now and only time will tell in terms of their contribution to the game and how consistent cats are with their music, most importantly hip-hop music (we appreciate all genre's of music in their true form cause lets face it guys as much as we are south african and we love kwaitto we cant be making kwaitto into hip-hop or vice versa) (like brown bread that taste's like white bread - all good for innovation but it's not organic - the same way Ihashi Elimhlophe is not Hip-Hop and in certain instances using vernac does not make you kwaitto)
even the above mentioned cats (except for P.O.C) need to still put in mad work if they are truly to be recognised as legends cause the landscape of the culture has changed drastically and very few if any of the heads who caught up recently (which is most of the cats claiming hip-hop right now) have a strong grounding in the movement that came before the media-hype.
some other crews/mc's who are ill or have been (depending on when you jumped on the wagon - Database(a crew that Phatboy now known as Tumi used to be part of)
SOME of the cats from Assylum Trybe got style
Rainbow of "HeadzRock" got flava
Soulah System is coming up slowly
and a gang of catz i cant remember of the top of the dome that have been or are still coming through. the key is consistency - in hip-hop.
ital tings still agwaan iya

-Proverb (I'm realy surprised none of ya'll mentioned this cat!!!)
-The late Devious (wish he was stil alive,one of the best MC's I've heard)
-Tumi and the Volume
-Prophets of the City (P.O.C)
I doubt that there could ever be...a more wicked MC
'Cuz AIDs infested child molesters aren't sicker than me

You mentioned my crew Writers Block as well. We trying to make moves and show up in the J and other places so much planning needs to be done.
