Audio: The Lo Frequency "Think Of"


Brooklyn crew The Lo Frequency are hip-hop ambassadors of sorts, traveling the globe to collaborate with local artists and organize community workshops. Most recently, they've touched down in Lebanon to link up with Beirut MCs and traveled to Honduras to take part in the World Summit of African Descendants.

In "Think Of," the first leak off their upcoming The Export EP, the collective showcase their blend of live hip-hop instrumentation, soul vocals and Black Thought-influenced rhyming — prime ingredients for many more African (and international) collaborations to come. Stream and download the track below.
