Fela Kuti x Milkcrate Tees

Bmore gutter producer Aaron Lacrate remixes Fela Kuti and designs a new Fela-inspired tee

Fela Kuti meets Bmore gutter in this collaboration t-shirt between the afrobeat legend and Milkcrate Athletics. Never one to back down against oppressive powers and authorities, Fela cheekily dubbed the Nigerian government and ruling class V.I.P.s, not very important persons, but "Vagabonds In Power." Renowned Bmore producer Aaron Lacrate channels Fela's rebel attitude in a "Sorrow, Tears, & Blood" remix and this gritty tee design. Stream Aaron Lacrate's remix of Fela below and buy the t-shirt at Milkcrate.

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
