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.
