AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #36: OLD MONEY - 'NO DEATH'

Download Bedstuy beatmakers Old Money's mixtape of "occult" African music.


Old Money is the joint moniker of Bedstuy, BK beatmakers/MCs Scheme and Andre Oswald, a pair that take cross-continental sonic cues from favelas, townships & projects and  filter them through their unique Afro-Caribbean lens.

For Africa In Your Earbuds #36: "No Death" Old Money present an outstanding 51-minute mix enwrapped in ancient and modern African spiritual systems that lie outside of mainstream religion — practices onlookers might tag as devil's worship or the occult. The mix is a journey through black/African worship, which Old Money cryptically describe:

Death is an illusion.

Death is an illusion.

Death is an illusion.

Death is an illusion.

No Death.

Wizkid Spoils Fans By Dropping the Music Video For 'No Stress'

Oh, you thought he was done for the day?

All in a day's work! Nigerian superstar Wizkid is climbing his way further and further up the charts (and our lists of favourites) by releasing visuals to accompany track "No Stress," off of his freshly released album Made In Lagos.

It's hard not to move to the track on its own, and now we have a plethora of beautiful African women to virtually jam out with. The release of the second single off the high anticipated MIL album comes as Wizkid toyed with fans by simply tweeting "No Stress."

So far, the album has amassed over a million streams in under 24 hours on Boomplay. The 14-track album features music heavy weights including Burna Boy, Skepta, Damian Marley, H.E.R., Ella Mai and Terri.

The album was originally meant to drop two weeks ago, but with the political and social terror occurring presently in his home country Nigeria, Wizkid chose to delay it.

Watch the music video for "No Stress" by Wizkid below.
