Award-winning rapper Emtee has been letting his music do all the talking as he continues to make strides. The rapper has been staying away from things that grab tabloid headlines and the results are showing.

In 2021, Emtee released his third studio album, "Logan'', which contains several radio hits such as "Wave" and "Long way" and "Brand New Day''. For the album, the hip hop star worked with his long-time producer Ruff. He also featured artists such as Flash IKumkani, J Smash, Moozlie and Lolli Native.

This past weekend, he shared the achievements of his album, with three of his songs certified gold. Emtee shared a picture of himself with his Gold plaques for the songs "Ithemba", "Long Way" and "Logan".

The hitmaker has been having a good year musically, he even received two nominations at this year’s 28th SA Music Awards in the Best Hip Hop Album and Artist of the Year category.

“Logan” was released under the rapper’s own label, Emtee Records, which he started after his exit from Ambitiouz Entertainment. Under the label, besides himself, Emtee has one signed artist Lolli Native.

In an interview with IOL Entertainment, Lolli Native opened up about working with Emtee. He revealed there were “huge doors” that have opened up for him being associated with Emtee – something he was grateful for.

“I couldn’t be more grateful for an opportunity to work at Emtee Records because my relationship with the (company) goes beyond business. I gained a second family and a whole lot of opportunities to elevate my career,” he said.
