5 Reasons Why @earlxsweat "Earl Sweatshirt" Should Come To South Africa

If you know Earl Sweatshirt you prolly know his real name x is Thebe Kgositsile. That means he's South African by birth and one of our local rappers doing his thing with Odd Future. Yeah he's one of us and here are top 5 reasons why Thebe should come home.

5 reasons why @earlxsweat

1.He tweeted it. With the recent racist drama happening in America one may wonder if was just a tweet or something he's thinking. Either way Thebe needs to come home. It would be interesting for him to witness the growth of local hip hop and get his take on it. Imagine a Thebe (Earl Sweatshirt) collab with one of our local rapers. That would be just awesome to hear.

2.Tour Announcement He just announced his 4 month tour date schedule. Mind you its a pretty impressive tour schedule that sees him touring the major states in the US whilst going ape in the UK and Australia. Could he possibly just come to South Africa? Come on Thebe come home mjita

5 Reasons Why @earlxsweat

3.Thebe's pops is legendary poet uBaba Keorapetse Kgositsile. Whats known about uBaba Keorapetse Kgositsile is that he was or is an adviser to South Africa’s arts minister. But to you Onlifers he's the father of a kid who is spear heading a generation of free youth in America who do what they want when they want.

4.He left in 1994
There's a significance when you talk the year 1994 in the context of South Africa. Its the year our democracy was born and the year Thebe left. It would be cool for him to see what has changed and how our local music industry is flourishing now. Come on Thebe come home bro.

5.Its our mandate as SlikourOnLife to bring all exclusive content on urban youth in South Africa. I reckon Thebe could learn a thing or two about the culture here in Mzansi and realise that it could make him a bigger artist than he already is. Call me crazy but I think there is some dope stuff he could do here. Thebe if you reading this you know what to do.
