SCUMIE, a budding rap queen, has been meticulously creating a reputation for herself in South Africa’s thriving hip-hop scene over the past few years.
Following the 2021 release of her debut record 066 Vol. 2, SCUMIE rose swiftly through the ranks to collaborate with some of her most well-known contemporaries, most notably on the song “Give Me Ya Luv” with Blxckie. In 2022, she came back with a collaborative initiative on Gangsters With Standards, collaborating with Moett. Outstanding songs like “SHOW SHOW” with Phantom Steez highlight SCUMIES’ lyrical prowess over trap-heavy rhythms, while “Outside” with Kenyan rapper Silverstone Barz heralds a hopeful alliance for women in rap on the continent.
With a sound that differs from her new-age rapping style to a sweet, calming voice, SCUMIES’ unique talent is positioning her as one of the most multifaceted artists of her time.
