We've teamed up with Converse Rubber Tracks to create Player Xchange, a new video series curated by Okayplayer and Okayafrica in which we'll be linking up African artists from around the continent with emerging American acts to write and record an original song.  First up on the series is "Big Promise," a collaboration track between Nigerian pop crooner Bez — whom you might recall from his hit "That Stupid Song" — and Brooklyn-bred rapper/producer Sene. Watch a behind-the-scenes video chronicling the creation of the song and stream/download the track. produced by Basement Batman, below.
