It is Monday once again & your favorite Monday musical feature is back a week early to help fill the void that only the finest in African Hip-Hop can occupy. I also understand our Nigerian readers might be experiencing a stronger weekend hangover than normal after the AFCON celebrations last night so I have thrown in something for you too.
Teeklef – The One
Our first entry for this week is from Nigerian born Teeklef who is currently studying at the University of Indianapolis. Check out the video for The One off his mixtape No Beat Is Safe
D.I.S. Guise – Mr. Bambe
In keeping with our Naija theme, I would like to present one the best & original African Hip-Hop videos I have seen in recent history. Even more impressive is the fact that D.I.S. Guise is the only actor in his video for Mr. Bambe . Well him & a bear, I can’t explain, just watch.
E.L. – You Dey Mad/You Dey Craze & All This For You
If I could predict the future I would have prepared an all Nigerian post this week but alas, being a mere mortal has robbed me of my potential greatness once more. For our next post we go to Ghana (the team I had backed to win it all this year). E.L. has dropped 2 new singles in the past 2 weeks; You Dey Mad/You Dey Craze & All This For You , the latter release coming out just in time to be added to your Valentine’s Day playlists
Shugamakx – Get Down (Remix) Featuring Kwesta, JR, Pro & Smashis
Our last entry for this edition comes in courtesy of Shugamakx & his remix to Get Down. This time around he enlists the verbal services of Kwesta, JR, Pro & Smashis to produce a monster hit. I can’t decide who had the hottest verse, but the leopard print definitely stole the show in the video. Leopard print FTW !!
