Despite the mixtape beats being part of the hip-hop culture, The Bee says the use of international beats by local rappers is killing creativity in Zimbabwe and killing producers who make beats in Zimbabwe.

The rapper/producer highlighted that there are a lot of locally high quality cheap produced beats but rappers prefer international free used beats. He says that they is need for the local musicians to develop their own flavour and mentioned that as long as this trend of using international beats continues to grow, an original sound in Zimbabwe hip-hop will not be achieved.
