Stuck on the repeat button…Alright folks, find an abandoned, dimly lit, neo-post apocalyptic garage, get your routine right and put the track on ‘Replay‘.
Off his debut EP Renaissance, Cameroonian electronic DJ/Producer Skriim releases the official video for Replay.
Sticking to his M.O of staying remotely hidden, the young and experimental artist keeps us guessing…
Everyone’s a little responsible for the current state of affairs…
Visually interpreting their latest single, East African super band & export; Sauti Sol shares the video for Tujiangalie feating Nyanshinski, addressing a host of current issues plaguing their beloved Kenya.
The video is a collage of various key images depicting these struggles and doubles up as a lyric video with the lyrics fitted into each frame almost seamlessly.
Debut album under 100 Crowns-an imprint label of Chocolate City Music, “Bad Boy Blaq” is the final lap of the LAMB August albums but the beginning of the hip-hop conversation for the new wave in Nigeria.First introduced to most with his feature on M.I Abaga’s Rendezvous in ‘Slow’, and then with his cover of Icon, Blaqbonez has carefully waited for the right time to share this body of work and you couldn’t be prepared for this.
With a pleasing balance of groove, depth and bars, executively produced by M.I Abaga, the 10 tracked album only features Terry Apalla, Oxlade, Loose Kaynon & A-Q and is a keeper on your favourites section.
A little comic relief…not without a key message!
South African rap duo; TLT under RapLyf & working with Wayward visuals have used the simple things to tell a tale of love & safety, particularly focused on violence against women. Embodied in their nostalgic remake of a South African house classic in ‘Sweety‘.
Ever think about death?
As we’ve come to expect, Yung Swiss delivers another captivating watch in his new single ‘Die Yung‘.
Edited by the Mayo Nigga himself Yung Swiss– who has time and time again proven his skills are way beyond the bars and killer hooks, the visuals follow very closely in the shadows of his previous single Psychedelia with the feel of the dark, dingy but sexy feel.
The ones that got away…
