It Thursday & time for a trip down memory lane.
Cashless Society were seen as one of SA’s best Hip Hop crews around at the time. Offering a more underground sound then the popular Skwatta Kamp, Cashless had the country in ore of their raw lyrics & hard hitting beats.
Formed in 1999 and originally consisting of Snazz D (Julian Du Plessis), Draztik (Dave Balsher), X-Amount (Kwezi Ngcakani), Black Intellect (Jerry Kai Lewis), Fat Free (Salim Mosidinyane) & DJ IQ (who left the crew, when he moved back to Queens, NY), the group made later acquisitions of other like minded MC’s Criminal (Alfred Chirwa), Tizeye (Tyrone Phillips) & Gemini (Thabiso Mofokeng) (the later is also a member of the Groundworks Crew), to form the group well known as Cashless Society.
Hottentot Hop (Bantu 1,2) was the groups 1st single off their 2003 release “African Raw Material Vol. 1” although the crew was highly praised for their album “African Raw Material” which went on to become a SA Hip Hop classic it was their only release & the group would later break up, eliminating any chance of a vol.2.
The video was shot in Botswana on a salt pan, with the San people & directed by Andrew Wessels.
