According to Priddy Ugly Toxic fans are causing a rift among artists. The fantastic that has characterised hip hop for the past ten years has brought delight to its listeners, but the culture has also given rise to never-ending feuds amongst artists who take different sides in their criticisms.

Priddy Ugly adds that the fans are equally to blame for the rivalries that have ruined the game because of all the competition that comes with hip-hop culture. He claimed on his Twitter feed that toxic behaviour among musicians exists and is occasionally encouraged by followers.

He added that “Artists can be toxic, but one day we’re going to have to discuss how toxic the “fan” bases can be, they often do to create divide and conflict between artists creating problems that the respective artists don’t or didn’t actually have with each other,

Based on the responses to his post, some of his followers weren’t persuaded by his viewpoint.

“You as an artist do start-up conflict first, then the fan base follows the atmosphere. Or were you just playing when you were busy dissing other artists that never had any problems with you?” Read the tweet.


In a subsequent Tweet, he urged people not to everything they read online and said that even if musicians pick fights with one another, they still hang out and enjoy themselves.

“Myself, Tyson & Touchline were in a collective conversation, bantering about bars, lyricism & “shots fired” laughing & dabbing one another last night. Don’t let the internet mislead you,” wrote Priddy Ugly.

Earlier this week Bontle Modiselle is over the moon as her hubby, Priddy Ugly recently bagged an award, the prestigious Lyricist of the year at the recently held SA Hip-Hop Awards.

Priddy Ugly went on a challenge to encourage hip hop stars to rap with his “are’ rappeng bafwethu” (literally, “let’s rap men”) slogan.

His efforts have paid off, as evidenced by the fact that he won the SA Hip Hop Awards’ prestigious Lyricist of the Year title.
