WorldStarHipHop, arguably the most visited rap video website in the US, recently featured The Very Best's new music video for "Yoshua Alikuti" (above), where it's gotten over 60k views [edit: now 100k]. WSHH caught Johan and Esau's riff on the Weezy staple tune, titling their post "African Version of Lil Wayne's A Milli!"

Warning explicit language.
