Formed in 2011 and hailing form a small drug infested area, RandHustle is truly a group to
look out for.
Despite the drug and poverty pandemic, Sydenham (Durban, South Africa) has seen the rise
of stars that are on a mission to fight for change. RandHustle is a hip hop group that is
self-made and is made up of talented individuals that aim to use their art as a form of
expression and to both educate & entertain the public. Like any other youth, they are faced
with challenges on a daily basis, but it is their passion that keeps them holding on to the
pursuit of their dreams.
RandHustle was formed by,
Reno (Yanga Mazithi Diko),
General Ace (Mduduzi Hlophe)
CeeKay ThaDon (Thobelani Zungu).
Their main objective was to show their community that you should not fall victim to your
circumstances but instead you should rise through it all and strive for your dreams.
The group was later joined by,
Pulchritude Queen (Sibusisiwe Buthelezi),
CoddAzz (Mhlengi Ncobela) &,
Young B (Sboniso Madondo)
Although the group is just a year old, they have achieved way more than most hip hop
artists/crews that have been in the game for years. The crew has 2 music videos under their
name, an exclusive radio interview on Ukhozi fm and shows at many exclusive events.
RandHustle also had an opportunity to perform alongside the likes of A.K.A.
Pulse Night Club
However, what this group find most rewarding is reaching out to the community. They have
performed for kids at birthday parties and are currently working on a major plan to uplift the
community using art as the main platform.
