Tshepang Ramoba [BLK JKS] x Notorious B.I.G. 'Brooklyn vs. Soweto (Kwaito Mashup)'

Stream BLK JKS drummer Tshepang Ramoba's kwaito remix of Notorious B.I.G.


BLK JKS drummer Tshepang Ramoba, who recently produced a few synth-heavy tracks for SA singer/designer Moonchild, recently sent us this kwaito mashup of Notorious B.I.G. (who would've turned 42 yesterday). Under his RAMBO production moniker, Tshepang blends Biggie's "Juicy" with a "first generation kwaito song [released near] the end of apartheid" from Vibe Lezinto. The resulting "Brooklyn vs. Soweto (Kwaito Mashup)" revisits the classic track through a distinctly Gauteng lens. Stream Tshepang aka RAMBO's remix of Biggie below and check out our Africa In Your Earbuds mix from BLK JKS  for more.
