CashTime versus The Wrecking Crew debate has taken over social media, as mzansi compared the group, stating which made the most significant impact in the South African hip-hop industry.
CashTime consisted of these rappers: K.O, Moozlie, Ntukza, Zingah, Michamelo, KiD X, AB Crazy, Ma-E, and a few others.
While TWC members were A-Reece, Wordz, Ecco, B3nchMarQ, Flame, MashBeatz, 1000 Degreez, Tyga Bankz, Mellow, and Ex Global.
Zingah who presumably sparked the debate on Twitter, adamantly rates his ex-group over TWC.
See comments and reactions below:
“Surely y’all dont understand Impact … I personally loved TWC bcz of A-reece & Mashbeats…I saw rappers changing they rap style, swag.. bcoz of cashtime…. Pour some respect of Dust music…and also… TWC wasn’t gonna be known if it wasn’t for Reece & Mash,” a tweep wrote.

@Zingah_LOTJ I am enjoying this episode bro, I think y’all had impact in different ways. CashTime impacted the whole country, even people who don’t love HipHop were aware of CashTime. TCW impacted city kids more. pic.twitter.com/q6uuDaQRsz

You can’t compare TWC with CashTime during the dust era. It shouldn’t even be a debate/topic to even begin with.

They have this wild obsession with streaming as if that shit makes real money here in Southy… you guys sold physical copies , sold real merch & went touch the real people at packed shows .
Cashtime didn’t even have to drop 100 songs for that to happen.

I’m all for the TWC & Cashtime discourse on the tl, but Boyz ‘n Bucks is where I draw the line, don’t disrespect what those guys did and meant to the industry.
