Last month Christian Tiger School announced that they had signed with New York City's iconic Tommy Boy Entertainment and they'll be releasing their debut album at their new label home in June. Chrome Tapes, which the Cape Town-based duo previously teased as a limited edition cassette back in 2014, sees South African producers Luc Vermeer and Sebastian Zanasi integrating techno, house and experimental sounds to their L.A. beat scene-influenced hip-hop beats. In April the guys shared the first single off the release with "Chorisolo," a thumping 6-minute burst of uptempo percussion, glittery effects and a minimal vocal loop. A stunning, canine-starring clip for the track came soon after. Now, Christian Tiger School have dropped the second of their Chrome Tapes singles. Listen to the woozy 8-minute "Cinderella Rocafella" below.

Bobi Wine's Release Detailed in Latest Episode of 'The Messenger'

Trauma is the topic on the podcast's latest episode: "The Ballot or The Bullet."

The latest episode of The Messenger is something to behold.

Created by Sudanese-American rapper Bas, The Messenger throws the spotlight on the thunderous circumstances many African countries face, with a close focus on Ugandan politician Bobi Wine.

In his most recent traumatic experience, Wine and his wife Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi were released from a nearly two-week military house arrest following the ruling of a Ugandan court. Keeping up with current events and circumstances that Wine finds himself in, the latest episode of the podcast recounts the traumatic events that led to Wine's very public abuse and eventual house arrest.

Upon his release, Wine spoke with The Messenger and had this to say, "I want to remind the world that we went in this election knowing how corrupt the staff of the electoral commission is. We saw this through the campaign and the world saw how much was oppressed, how biased and one sided the electoral commission was, and how much it was in the full grip of General Museveni. And therefore we are going to test every legal test, we shall take every legal test. We shall take every legal step. And indeed we shall take every moral and morally proactive, nonviolent, but legal and peaceful step to see that we liberate ourselves. The struggle has not ended. It is just beginning."
