Download Burkinabe rapper Art Melody's wobbling-bass attack "Yam Sabaab."


Burkinabé rapper Art Melody has been an in-office favorite since he dropped the incredible, found-footage video for “L’eben Est Dans Le Noir” and his collabartion project Waga 3000. In "Yamb Sabaab," Art Melody once again collaborates with "L'eben" beatsmith Redrum to create a wobbling-bass attack about life in Ouagadougou:
