Chief Boima Shares 'Global Hyphy' Mixtape For Feel Up Radio

Global bass head Chief Boima recently dropped a new West-Coast hip-hop meets kwaito inspired mixtape 'Mustard With Pepe.'


Global bass head Chief Bomia recently dropped a new West-Coast hip-hop meets kwaito inspired mixtape Mustard With Pepe for Feel Up Radio Vol. 18. The Brazil-to-Brooklyn based explained his selections to Feel Up Records:

"So the idea behind the mix stems from a conversation that I had with my colleagues at Africa is a Country about how Southern and West Coast rap influence in US mainstream music has been able to allow kwaito influences to return to mainstream South African hip-hop. And I’ve noticed for a while that the current zeitgeist of DJ Mustard-inspired beats infecting the US mainstream has also touched a nerve globally. However, what sometimes goes unrecognized when talking about DJ Mustard’s sonic dominance, is the influence that the Bay Area’s hyphy movement had on his sound. And since global hyphy is kind of my thing, I thought I would mix some of my own experiments in the sound, with some current Mustard-influenced tracks from around the world (starting in Africa and moving to Latin America), to highlight how influential the Bay Area’s humble local hip-hop scene has actually become."

Be prepared to get down with Afrikan Boy, Too $hort, New Boyz, E-40, Plan B and more during this global hyphy pump-up mix. Chief Boima has a few Northeast dates set up starting with Feel Up Radio Sound Splash Party at the Dream Downtown later this month. Check out the rest of his dates and stream Chief Boima's Mustard With Pepe mixtape below.

It has been more than 30 years since the premiere of the beloved classic comedy Coming to America. Its highly anticipated sequel promises to be greater than its predecessor.

Both albums, which are currently available on all major streaming platforms, feature African music royalty Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga and Alpha P, who joined a select group of artists from around the continent to produce these tracklists.

Still blazing charts after the success of his debut album Old Romance, Tekno has a growing list of impressive collaborations with artists like Davido, Drake, Beyonce, to name a few. The singer does not have not one, but two of his hit songs featured; "Waka Waka" is featured on the official soundtrack and "Skeletun" on Rhythms of Zamunda.
