The Hustle Is Back!
The biggest hip hop show on TV is back, and the battle to join the ranks of hip hop royalty will be bigger and badder than ever when The Hustle season two, proudly brought to you by KFC, premieres in April. VUZU AMP is bringing back industry royalty in Khuli Chana, AKA, Stogie T, and joining this noble ensemble is Siyabonga ‘Scoop’ Ngwekazi, as show presenter.
This season the judges have raised the bar and are taking no prisoners when it comes to producing the goods. Expect harsher, more candid feedback, within a contemporary war of hip hop genres: trap, boom bap, motswako, and trap gqom. This season’s winner walks off with R 250 000 cash prize; an Opel Corsa Sport, a record deal with Vth Season, and a PR contract with African Star Communications, in being crowned the prince or princess of the hip hop world.
Sphumelele Sibeko, M-Net’s Head of Reality for Local Entertainment Channels expressed her enthusiasm at the show’s return, “The Hustle is without a doubt the biggest hip hop talent search in the country – it’s not only significant for the superstars it creates, but more importantly, for the local entertainment industry as a whole. The hip hop world has seen an all-out stylistic revolution in the last few years, and that will come through very strongly in a more intense, more competitive new season.”
Produced by Callback Dreams, The Hustle season two will premiere on Monday, 17 April, simulcast on VUZU AMP and VUZU at 19:30.
