AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #49: KOOL A.D. MIXTAPE 'CHANGOHOLICS'

Download our latest African hip-hop mixtape compiled by former Das Racist member Kool A.D. Stream Kool A.D's mixtape "Changoholics."


Victor Vazquez a.k.a. Kool A.D. is a constant presence in the leftmost hemisphere of the contemporary prankster brain. The former Das Racist rapper has been keeping busy in 2013, releasing two mixtapes 63 & 19, penning Joke Book with publisher Sorry House and even part-time modeling for our Okayplayer Store.

For our forty-ninth installment of Africa In Your Earbuds, Victor delivers CHANGOHOLICS — an experimental mixtape that cheekily blends Afro-Cuban sounds with a particular, now infamous, trap rap voice sample. Victor, who declined sending over a track list, best explains his mix:

Is it just a coincidence that Djimon Honsu played a bouncer on the pilot episode of Beverly Hills 90210? Or that the opening scene of Luther is just the last scene of Juice? Who is the better Illuminati rapper: Jay-Z or Jay Electronica? Why wasn't the sequel to Belly just Nas and T-Boz raising a kid in Africa? Would a remake of the Michael Douglas movie The Game, starring rapper The Game be a good or a bad idea? All of these questions about or relating to the African diaspora and more will be revealed in the this #NEW #EXCLUSIVE #RARE KOOL A.D. CHANGOHOLICS MIX.
