Audio: Stream Chief Boima’s Liberian Hipco & Gbema Album

A couple weeks ago we hinted at past Africa In Your Earbuds contributor Chief Boima‘s mixtape teaser for Lone Stars Vol. 1: Hipco & Gbema — a compilation, and the first international release, of current Liberian sounds. As Boima explains: “Hipco is hip-hop sung in colloquial Liberian-street English. Gbema is a generic term given to electronically-produced traditional music.” Today marks the official release of Lone Stars via Akwaaba Music, you can stream the album in its entirety below and purchase at Bandcamp or iTunes.
