Mumhanzi Media and DJ Quincy have decided to make a collective effort to create collection of mixes for Zim Hip Hop fans, in the form of Mumhanzi Mix. This was one of the grassroots means by which Zim Hip Hop was distributed in its infancy.
The mixes of that time where put onto CDs or placed on website. The downturn of this method was primarily due to unreliable internet connections. The country’s internet is slightly better now. There has never been a better time to be making Hip Hop in Zimbabwe than right now.
With all the negative connotations and criticism that the genre constantly faces, it is easy to ignore the incredible feats that it is also achieving. Mumhanzi Media is well known for its engagements in Zim Hip Hop, hence its collaboration with one of the hottest DJs in the capital, DJ Quincy is set bring fireworks.
