Last night (13 December 2017) SA Hip Hop gathered at Lyric Theater at Gold Reef City in Johannesburg to celebrate another spectacular year in local Hip Hop at the #SAHHA2017. The night was nothing short of amazing but also had it’s fair share of controversy (If you were there you know what we’re talking about?).

But what has to be the most exciting news of the night, your favourite events company (Kool Out) came home with 2 awards taking the King Of Gauteng & DJ Speedsta winning DJ Of The Year for the 2nd year running.

The Kool Out team would like to thank the SA Hip Hop Awards committee for putting on a great ceremony & to all our KOOL fans & supporters thank you for the love you guys have constantly showed us over the years.
