Planet Earth aka ‘The Street Representer’ was born and raised in the Cape Town township of Gugulethu. His sound is best described as rugged sample-based street hip hop in the classic boom bap tradition.
Planet Earth started out with Chronic Clan back in 1997. Their aim was to create a blueprint for the South African independent music scene. In 2003 Planet Earth started his own label, Earthbeats Entertainment, and released a mixtape called Defenders of the Earth Vol.1.
Since then Planet Earth has produced music for Driemanskap, Ill Skills, Archetypes, Rattex, Fifth Floor, TOP, Macho, Metabolism, DAT, Equilibrium, Korianda, Dangatye, Eavesdrop and Whosane (NYC). His work has appeared on Igqabhukil’ Inyongo (Driemanskap), Bread and Butter (Rattex), The Skills That Pay the Bills (Ill Skills), Battle of Guguletu Vol 1 (various), Another Day Another Rhyme (Ill Skills), Harambe Dope Sessions. Pavement Specials Vol. 1 (various), Third World Hustles (Archetypes), Perigo Minas Vol. 2 (Landmynz) and Attention to Detail (Fifth Floor).
Planet Earth is passionate about developing a proudly South African hip hop industry. When not producing music, Planet Earth holds workshops for Cape Town’s underprivileged youth. By transferring his musical and technical know how, he hopes to give inspiration and steer at-risk youth away from gangsterism and drugs.
