Put your best rap First to win R32 000 cash!


First Car Rental, one of South Africa’s leading car rental companies, is calling on all South Africans to unleash their inner hip-hop superstar by entering the company’s #FunFirstRap Sweet 16th Birthday Competition.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never rapped before; this competition is about having fun. Remember – there’s a First time for everything.

There is a R32 000 BIG CASH prize up for grabs – R16 000 to the ‘best rap video’ and a R16 000 lucky draw prize for challenging friends.

Historically, Rap is a type of popular music of US black origin in which words are recited rapidly and rhythmically over an instrumental backing or no backing at all.

For years, the debate has ensued about what exactly the difference is between rap music and hip hop music. Hip-hop artists sing in upbeat tones that tell people to get off their seats and dance to the music. Their message is more of a positive, brighter future type of ballad.

Rap, o­n the other hand, is more concerned with what is going o­n in popular culture. Current rap stars like Eminem, 50 Cent, and Lil’ Wayne frequently rap about issues.

Hip hop strives to push its listeners to look forward to a better tomorrow; rap music is all about “telling it like it is” in the here and now. Choose your style and let’s do this!
