Audio: Tanzanian Hip-Hop From Zig Zag Crew


Awesome Tapes From Africa digs up a stellar bongo flava (aka Tanzanian hip-hop) cassette with Bongo Msoto. Zig Zag Crew spit Swahili bars over raw minimalist beats reminiscent of early '90s East Coast production — think RZA. Pretty sure that's not the same Tuff Gong label as Marley's. Stream the title-track below and download the entire tape over at ATFA.
