Video: Burkina Faso Rap Crew Waga 3000

Watch a video for Burkina Faso rappers Waga 3000's anti-violence track "Voir Sombrer Ses Files."


We've been keeping close tabs on Art Melody — who recently dropped the solid "Yamb Sabaab" — and Joey le Soldat, a Burkinabé rap duo who collaborate together under the Waga 3000 moniker. Their latest single "Voir Sombrer Ses Files" is a reverberating-bass hard hitter, produced by DJ Form, which doubles as a "plea for peace in Africa to prevent violence such as military mutiny that shook Burkina Faso in 2011." Find the track on Waga 3000's self-titled album from last year released by Akwaaba/Tentacule Records and watch the video for "Voir Sombrer Ses Files" below.
