FOKN Bois be Sexin Islamic Girls

 

My homie Nana-Kofi over at our affiliate¬†ASPECKS told me about M3nsa a long time ago, they hooked up some t-shirts for his last solo album. M3nsa’s collobarative effort with Wanlov the Kubolor (love these monikers) has been aptly titled the Fokn Bois’. For those of you familiar with Pidgin, the lyrics will hit home, for those of you who struggle with your acoustic diversity, peep these lyrics off the track:

WOKE UP EARLY IN THE A.M
MEGAPHONE CHANTING
WOT R DEY SAYIN?
IS HE PRAYIN OR PLAYIN?
ME DIER AM GOIN NOT STAYIN

SAW YOR BOTTOS IN THE AIR
COULDN’T HELP IT
SO WE STARED

Yes, they are in the shock the shit out of you (if you are Nigerian or Muslim especially) business. That’s why I’m lining up what has to be my most anticpated interview yet for ZIF, I may have to have my translator stand by, but I will assuredly explore these guys more, as you should as well.

Blackstar, the soccer squad, not the group, but it is a song by rappers.

ZIF featured artist¬†M.anifest dropped this video off in my inbox. The 8-bit look of the video is paralleled with a¬†familiar¬†theme from the African emcee, that being Ghana. This track will be featured on Producer/DJ¬†Richy Pitch‘s upcoming LP,¬†“Ye¬†Fre¬†Mi¬†Richy¬†Pitch”. The album will be released on famed record label¬†BBE. Richy¬†Pitch spent a good chunk of the last 2 years in Ghana and assembled an all-star all-Ghanaian cast for this LP (June Release). The album will feature some of Ghana‚Äôs finest contemporary music stars such as: Reggie¬†Rockstone,¬†Samini, M.anifest,¬†M3NSA,¬†Wanlov¬†the¬†Kubolor,¬†Yasmeen, Sena, AB, DJ Black and¬†Kwesi¬†Dankwa.¬†Richy¬†Pitch first made his name back in 1996 as resident DJ at the legendary London Hip Hop club night Scratch. He has recorded and produced music in the US with heralded emcees such as J-Live, El da Sensei, Mr Complex,¬†Asheru¬†and¬†Apani¬†B where he recorded his critically acclaimed Live at Home LP on the New York label¬†Sevenheads.

Is it just me, or are cats from Ghana taking over hip hop right now?
