South African hip-hop talent XXC Legacy is setting local airways alight with the release of her first extended play album titled ‘End of Days’, introducing exciting collaborations with some of music’s hottest names including Moozlie, BigStar Johnson, Stilo Magolide, Jay Jody and more.
Born Courtney Thandiswa Mthethwa, 23-year-old singer, rapper, and musician XXC Legacy heralds from Johannesburg, and first hit stages at the tender age of just seven years with her rendition of Shakira’s “Hips don’t lie” at an open mic session hosted by Pabi Maloi. She completed her studies at the National School of the Arts where she studied music theory, and honed her skills with the piano and clarinet. After working for a few years as an independent artist, she finally signed a record deal with cutting-edge label Paradise Sound System in 2020.
Brimming with catchy hooks, rich beats, and her trademark smooth, quick-spoken rap style, her new album blends hip-hop and rap, while seamlessly fusing 90s sound influences with modern electronic touches.
