The talented young MC and producer Sipho the Gift was featured as the Apple Music New Artist Spotlight in February this year and has appeared in Complex magazine and Pigeon & Plane’s list of upcoming rappers to watch from outside America.
Today Apple Music has released his new single “Hold Up“
Sipho the Gift’s talent is supreme. He is a bold lyricist whose wizardry has led to two outstanding projects. 2015’s Coming of Age documents an autobiographical tale of a young boy growing into a man, while 2017’s Kintsugi finds the man learning how to reconcile his past mistakes with a desire to become a better person.
He has worked with others across the globe, including US rappers like Well$, Deniro Ferrar and King Mez. In 2017, he earned a nomination from the UK’s Urban Music Awards for Best Hip-Hop Act.
