An amazing new hip hop video ‘Warning’ by local Port Elizabeth Hip Hop artist JBux, featuring stunning shots of the city, has just been released.
“Warning” is the first single off of Jbux’s first album titled “Since 1982”. The video was filmed in and around Port Elizabeth by Geoff Hookins and local photographer Ross Charnock.
Jbux started his hip hop career in 1996, at the young age of 14, and has grown to be one of South Africa’s favourite “emcees”(or rappers). He was recently voted in as one of the top 50 emcees in South Africa in Hype magazine.

He has also been featured on the world’s top hip hop radio show “The Wake Up Show” with Sway and King Tech.
In 2007 Jbux launched True Sight Music, in order to develop PE hip hop.
He has since released five albums for local musicians, Hishaam, Schaik, Epic the Scriptwriter, and others, all of which have received five star ratings in the Hype magazine.
