Weekend Burners: Best Tracks of the Week

Hear and stream the best African hip-hop and music tracks that came out this week.


We realize our site cycles through an, at times, overwhelming number of videos, tracks, remixes and mixtapes from a deluge of African/diaspora artists that not everyone is familiar with — in fact, we've gotten a large amount of reader feedback stating so. With Weekend Burners we aim to address that by highlighting our choices of the best music content that made it on the blog throughout the week. Get 'em below straight from the Okayafrica bunker:
