South African hip hop was hit hard with heavy news when Malawian musician, Gemini Major, announced that he would be leaving Family Tree.

The rapper revealed that he would be leaving the label with plans of starting his own shop when he said:
“It has been a great journey with special memories made and I’m thankful of all the opportunities, but now it’s time to focus on other things and grow as an artist and brand,”
Considering that people in the industry have nothing but good things to say about the rapper, and that today, it’s more possible than ever for an independent artist to succeed, we think it’s a well-considered move.
Seriously though, how many rappers have moved labels this year?!
