Dope Saint Jude

BIOGRAPHY

Dope Saint Jude is the patron of South Africa’s diverse hip hop scene. An artist actively pushing the frontiers of inventiveness in South African hip hop, she crafts songs with an unpretentious Cape Town swagger.

Saint Jude, an activist and aspiring scholar, infuses her rhymes with appealing, brilliant wordplay that both criticizes and showcases power structures.

A queer lady who shakes things up in South Africa with dramatic music creation, poetry, and performance, as well as her bold, life-affirming outlook, has earned her international fame and seen her play in Europe, the United States, and Africa.

Dope Saint Jude’s distinct approach appeals to listeners who are interested in the nexus of hip hop, queerness, feminism, and badassery.

A former drag king-turned-rap kingpin and producer, Dope Saint Jude’s moment to shine was encoded in the stars by her ancestors. At the tail-end of 2013, the Cape Town-born, queer-identifying woman of colour made her initial steps into music-making, releasing a slew of tunes that catapulted her into the spotlight.
