Johannesburg, South Africa – Known for hosting the biggest marquee at the Vodacom Durban July last year, Miller has upped the ante and will feature international hiphop frontman rapper 2 Chainz this year. Gearing up to be a showdown to remember, Miller also announced today the renaming of the Miller Marquee to Miller BOOMTOWN.
Atlanta rapper, 2 Chainz is no stranger to the business and has paid his dues to get to the top of the game. Having built a huge rep in the hiphop industry over the years, he has been featured on every top selling album this past year alone, earning a place in hip hop’s royal fraternity. In addition to Miller bringing South Africa the hottest headliner, they will also host a long list of SA’s finest artists and DJs on the same stage. (to be announced at a later date).
Over the years the marquee has gained the reputation as thee place to be for the game changers of the SA entertainment industry. Cleverly positioned on the outer area of the track with all its colourful elements and activations, various lounges and many bars, the marquee has been compared to a mini town within the Vodacom Durban July. The legendary Miller Marquee has been aptly renamed as Miller BOOMTOWN this year and will be supported by powerhouse media partner 5FM.
“After 4 years Miller has built quiet a reputation at the Vodacom Durban July, so we needed to take it up a notch again in 2013. Adding hip-hop sensation 2 Chainz to BOOMTOWN’s already steaming hot local line-up just made sense to the brand. He is a firm favorite right now with the urban youth” says Carmen Hobbs the Miller Genuine Draft Marketing Manager, and added “MGD promised to ‘bring it’ and we do our best to ensure that always deliver. This year we give you Miller BOOMTOWN.”

"I'm a hustler, I'll do any job that pays me I'll work at McDonalds if I have to, as long as I can support myself! Flippin Raps n flippin Big Macs," says Cash Sog.
Don't get it twisted this is NOT an introduction, Courage Ambition Strength Hustle AKA Cash Sog - has been on his grind for a minute and like Nas - life is good. The Soweto born and Mthatha bred MC's career flood gates - opened in 2006 with the album called The Pyramid.
"First professional album was in 2006 with The Pyramid, my big break. Did my first no1 radio hit on national radio, first video, first photo-shoot, professional recording session, endorsement, paying live show etc...basically the Pyramid album broke my vaginal walls hehehe #pause," says Cash Sog.
The microphone called out his name when he first heard Snoop Lion's Doggystyle album and Tupac's All Eyes on Me, he's locked in the lab with his brother from another mother the Channel O Music Awards Winner, Buffalo Souljah. The two heavy weights have been working on Kush (Off Real Niggas Only) and Izandla Phezulu (Off Crackboys Vol3 and Buffalo Souljahs Movement album), also dropped a single called Catch Belle.
I ask him if his parents had any career in mind for him, Cash smiles and says, "I'm sure they did lol. RIP to them, I hope to make them proud looking' down on me from heaven one day thinking' "This motherfucker ballin like a bitch outchea."
Besides music, he has love for tattoos, art, gym and his family.
So, what's next? "Next is COD "Cash On Delivery" dropping' soon, matter fact go to www.reverbnation.com/cashmyafrica and listen to my 1st single "Kaizer Chiefs, I'm also getting' into TV, and yeah catch me at ur nearest Virgin Active," says Cash Sog.
