It's only cool if no one's heard of it.

African Hip-Hop?

Postby vand00r » Mon Oct 18, 2010 12:55 am UTC

I just watched Blood Diamond yesterday, and I really liked the music that the militia plays when they go to plunder, rape, and kill. I think the genre would be best described as African Hip-Hop/Rap: can anyone recommend any artists that make this kind of music?

BBC Soundsystem might fit the bill. The excellent and sadly defunct Ben Loxo Du Taccu blog also recommends Das Premiero. I've not watched the movie, though, so for all I know they could be playing MOP.
