This is something for those who are still getting familiar with Afrobeats (which is technically Afropop). Remember Drake linked up with Skepta and Wizkid for that Ojuelegba joint that helped spike the popularity of said genre. On another note Detroit based emcee/producer Chisom redefines the hit track Soke by dancehall/afropop sensation Burna Boy. A laid back smooth cut that sees the emcee spitting in English and Igbo alongside Burna Boy’s Yoruba tinged verse.
Something different fro a change mind you. Hit the play button and get with the program.
Fresh off the release of his debut EP The Jordan Year, and the RESPECT Mag premiere and Chuck D cosign of lead single “Africa Get Money”, Detroit-based rapper/producer Chisom is back to usher in Spring ’16. This time, he delivers a suave remix to “Soke” by Nigerian Dancehall star Burna Boy. On the “Soke” Remix, 23-year-old Chisom and Burna Boy trade bars in three languages, as Chisom puts his unique spin on the hit record, switching effortlessly between rapping and singing in Igbo and English (complementing Burna Boy’s Yoruba). This is truly international Hip Hop at its finest.
