The Top 10 Best Riky Rick Songs Of All Time (SA Hip Hop Legacy)

It has been nothing but sadness and shock since the news of legendary South African rapper Riky Rick’s death broke just a few hours ago, an amazing rapper and all-around musician and also a role model for many hip hop artists in South Africa today. The You And I coroner’s influence on the entire SA Hip Hop scene is definitely visible to the blind and audible to the deaf. Riky Rick used to roll with another legendary rapper Cassper Nyovest in which they worked on a lot of amazing songs together motivating each other to do better, that being said the top Mzansi rap god was definitely capable of delivering hits on hits every year on his own and we can boldly say Riky Rick has got a great discography with amazing projects to his name, body of works, singles and amazing collaborations with artist across the country and the continent. In respect to the recently deceased we the AfroHits editorial team have decided to share with you the legacy and genius of the man. May his soul rest in peace.

I loved the beat and vibe of this song back then, it has got that very cool rhythm with an amazing hook, the verses were a killer too. We miss you Riky.


In case you didn’t know yes, Riky was a jack of all trade, he sampled Amapiano too and he made a hit with Focalistic in 2020. This tune was what many needed during the lockdown period.

7. Riky Rick x Cassper Nyovest x Anatii – FUSEG

Good old days guys, good old days, when SA Hip Hop was still SA Hip Hop, if you know what I mean. Shoutout to Cassper, Anatii and the king of Kotini himself for blessing us with this record.

Like I said earlier Riky was a jack of all trades, so of course, he sampled Afrobeats and dancehall several times, this one is one of my favourites, he features Davido and Gemini Major.

Oh yes, we can’t believe this either Riky, we are sad to see you gone, it’s too early, this record wasn’t much of my favourite when it was released but it grew on me. It has been on my replay since.
