Kobi Onyame x Wanlov the Kubulor's Nkrumah-Sampling 'We Rise'

Download Kobi Onyame and FOKN Bois' Wanlove the Kubulor's head-nodding Ghanaian ode "We Rise."

In celebration of Ghana's 57th Independence Day, UK/Ghanaian rapper Kobi Onyame dusts off this track from the vaults featuring FOKN Bois spitter Wanlov the Kubulor, who comes in around the 2-minute mark with a verse that reminds us of why he's of the most inventive rhymers around. "We Rise" also features an intro that samples the famous independence speech made by Kwame Nkrumah. The track was originally recorded back in 2007 but never released.
