Ghanaian hip-hop duo FOKN Bois will drop their third studio album, 'FOKN Ode To Ghana,' this summer.

Ghanaian group FOKN Bois have announced the upcoming release of their third studio album, FOKN Ode to Ghana. The album is slated to come out on June 30.


Comprised of Wanlov the Kubolor and M3nsa, FOKN Bois have been making waves internationally for their satiric style, socio-political lyrics and cutting-edge flow.

According to the official press release, the album’s 21 tracks will continue FOKN Bois’ style of addressing “global, social, political, economic, racial and religious happenings.”

The group had released two previous albums before this month’s upcoming LP, their 2011 FOKN Dunaquest in Budapest EP and FOKN Wit Ewe, which came out in 2012.
