Audio: Whosane's 'Pardon The Interruption (Africa Time)' Mixtape, Endorsed By Nas


Cape Town/BK rapper Whosane has been tapped by none other than Nasty Nas, via tweet, as one to watch for. On his recent Pardon The Interruption (Africa Time) mixtape, the Brooklyn-born transplant spits over a laundry list of U.S. hip-hop notables from the past year — there's Ye's "All of the Lights," Kreayshawn's polarizing "Gucci Gucci," and Chris Brown's hypnotic Diplo beat "Loot At Me Now."
