NEW BATTLE: THE DEADMAN vs. CHILLA JONES | @SCRAMBLES4MONEY #TalkIsCheap2


In two weeks, in a first of its kind on African soil, SCRAMBLES4MONEY is gonna be changing the game again. One of the main battles for the night will be PAVA GUNZ vs. THE DEADMAN.

Now, anyone who has been following the SCRAMBLES4MONEY league knows that even though a lot of lesser MCs have been calling him out, PAVA is still a dominant force in the league.

Some of y'all might not know who The Deadman is though, so here's one of his battles from KOTD BLACKOUT 4. As you can see, nigga is good, but question is, is he good enough to leave the motherland on his feet?

Catch PAVA GUNZ vs. THE DEADMAN on the 26th of April 2014, Zen Nightclub, Maboneng precinct.

Its SCRAMBLES baby!


NAS TO PERFORM IN SOUTH AFRICA IN JUNE 2014


The deets are still sketchy at this point but from what we've managed to find out on them internets, Esco is gonna be performing at a concert in Johazardoursburg on Saturday the 7th of June 2014. 

After bringing Drake and Kanye West, i am glad that Castlelite is finally bringing a dope rapper through!

Other details are not released yet but a little birdie tells me that DJ ID (REASON's Manager and DJ) is gonna be one of the opening acts, hopefully that means REASON will also be performing. 

NAS being a rapper of such revered stature i hope Castlelite doesnt fuck with us and that the rest of the opening acts will also be worthy...
