Articulate Artists are an independent Hip-Hop group from South Africa which was formed in early 2009, and consists of 3 members; Power Of Thought (emcee/producer), SafarI (emcee/producer/engineer) and DJ Sizzor Hands. Articulate Artists released their debut album "The WorkHorse Programme" in April 2010... The album was extremely well received nationally and even received a 4 Star rating in HYPE Magazine (Articulate
Artists have featured in Hype Magazine on numerous occasions). Since the release of their debut project, Articulate Artists have been extremely busy with the self-marketing of their album, having performed at a number of Johannesburg's Hip-Hop shows/festivals such as Jozi Fest 2012, Back to the City 2011 & 2012, Mzansi Hip Hop Mega Fest, Splash Jam, 1808, Babylon, Hip Mofunk, Cool Runnings & AFMP Sundays, just to name a few. These underground lyricists have also shared stages with the likes of Proverb, HHP, Jack Parow, Die Antwoord, Ben Sharpa, Driemanskap, Ewok, Last Days Fam, Smurf, R-Senic & independent legends Copywrite (USA), Eligh and Scarub (USA) and Mac Lethal (USA).
Articulate Artists have also worked with local Dj's Niffty (DMC champion), CutKeylow and 2 x DMC champ The Cutt; so it is clear that these guys are purists of the art form. Articulate Artists have not only kept their feet in the sands locally but have also been expanding their skill's & talent across the seas, working with artists and producers such as Empne (Greece), Stihopathis (Greece), Echs Incongnito (Australia), Mr.Boomkat (Australia), Jimmi Riddlz (UK), & King Mike V (U.S.A).
Power Of Thought released his Solo Mixtape in 2012 entitled “Dope Joints for POT Heads Vol.1” Which received a 9/10 rating on Headpage.co.za. P.O.T and SafarI are also well known in the battle circuit, having battled some of S.A.s finest emcee's on various stages, leagues and street corners. Most notably, battle venues such as Battleground, Back to the City 2010, Scrambles4Money, and the Art OF War battle league.
Articulate Artists have also appeared twice on Sabc 1's Ziyakhipha and once on e-tv's Hip-Hop show "ShizNiz" and on Soweto tv's Just Music Hip-Hop. Articulate Artists pride themselves on creating original boom bap Hip-Hop which is rarely found these days...With lyrical skills which are highly content driven and extremely thought provoking, it's safe to say Articulate Artists do it for the Hip-Hop culture and represent the raw elements that real Hip-Hop heads thrive on.
