@reece_youngking Pulls Out Of The @SA_HipHopAwards

By @SeptemberEleven on 11/19/2022 in News

A-Reece has pulled out of the South African Hip Hop Awards, according to a statement released by the SAHHAs just after midnight. 

The statement didn’t state what Reece’s reasons were for pulling out. But this isn’t the first time Reece was unhappy about the SAHHAs; in his verse on FLVME’s ‘Whole New Lane’ five years ago, he didn’t hold back about his dissatisfaction with the awards:

“On papers, they just wrote a column

Talking bout how we done got the whole nation divided

From fuck niggas who run the SAHHA's

Yeah we submitted its obvious

Why you think I got a problem?

These niggas started this

Still on the charts like I dropped in the morning”

Reece was up for Lyricist of the Year and Mixtape of the Year, and it’s highly likely he felt snubbed in other categories. 

See the full list of nominees for this year’s SAHHAs here.     


Update:

It appears that both A-Reece and Jay Jody hadn't submitted to the SAHHAs this year. In a statement released by Revenge Club Records, the label stated they "wish to formally decline all nominations" they received.
