Buffalo Souljah Drops the Star-Studded Zim Dancehall EP, ‘Born Again’

South African-based Zimbabwean dancehall artist Buffalo Souljah's EP is here.

South African-based Zimbabwean dancehall artist Buffalo Souljah has been on the grind. In recent years, he's worked with the likes of Nyla (Brick and Lace), AKA, and DJ Waxxy, among others.

The prolific artist has now released his solo EP, Born Again, and it’s a total jump.

His production choices straddle dancehall, hip-hop and pop, while the project's tied together by Buffalo Souljah's consistent vocals.

The 11-track EP features the cream of the crop of South African hip-hop—the likes of Ab Crazy, Yung Swiss, Frank Casino, Nadia Nakai and Gemini Major. His Zimbabwean countryman, the king of Zim dancehall, Winky D and Zambia’s DJ Cosmo also make an appearance.

Be it over fast-paced dancehall drum patterns or heavy 808 drums and bass lines, Buffalo Souljah consistently impresses with his auto-tuned vocals, and his guests give the project variety.

Most of the production on Born Again is handled by gTbeats, Louis M Songz, Glo, Ghost and, of course, Gemini Major.

The EP features Buffalo Souljah and Winky D’s video single “Rugare,” which you can watch above.
