To nurture musical talent, Rapper Slikour launched a compilation album – SlikourOnLife Incubator – which gave 12 undiscovered artists the springboard to launch their musical careers.
The album which will be launched today sees Slikour using his knowledge and relationships to give 12 young hip-hop artists from cities across South Africa access to the resources necessary to jumpstart their musical journeys.
“The Incubator album takes SlikourOnLife to the next level. We’ve selected the very best hip-hop songs submitted to SlikourOnLife and compiled them into an album, and I’m taking everything I would do for myself and handing it over to these artists,” said Slikour.
Drawn from the four corners of South Africa, the artists range in age from 19 to 27 and represent the future of musical culture, said Slikour.
“Whenever I hear great talent I always ask myself ‘what if these kids need that one chance that got me to where I am today?’. I live by the theory that we all have a CSI responsibility, and I have the relationships and resources to bring media, industry, and artists together. It’s my responsibility to utilise them.
“These 12 kids have a talent, and I’m plugging them into an environment that will allow them to walk the path that I’ve walked,” he said.
