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.

Wizkid Spoils Fans By Dropping the Music Video For 'No Stress'

Oh, you thought he was done for the day?

All in a day's work! Nigerian superstar Wizkid is climbing his way further and further up the charts (and our lists of favourites) by releasing visuals to accompany track "No Stress," off of his freshly released album Made In Lagos.

It's hard not to move to the track on its own, and now we have a plethora of beautiful African women to virtually jam out with. The release of the second single off the high anticipated MIL album comes as Wizkid toyed with fans by simply tweeting "No Stress."

So far, the album has amassed over a million streams in under 24 hours on Boomplay. The 14-track album features music heavy weights including Burna Boy, Skepta, Damian Marley, H.E.R., Ella Mai and Terri.

The album was originally meant to drop two weeks ago, but with the political and social terror occurring presently in his home country Nigeria, Wizkid chose to delay it.

Watch the music video for "No Stress" by Wizkid below.
