Kwesi Arthur's New Video For 'One Stone' Will Jump Start Your Week

"I think it's time to remind people where we came from."

Ghana's Kwesi Arthur comes through with the bars in his latest music video for "One Stone."

The new single and clip sees the buzzing rapper tackling an ominous beat produced by Yung D3mz as he drops some fiery lines, dubbing himself the "modern day Kwame Nkrumah" and shouting out Ghanaian rappers that have paved the way for him like Sarkodie.

"I think it's time to remind people where we came from," Kwesi Arthur wrote on his Instagram page about the new song.

The new music video for "One Stone" toggles between black-and-white scenes of the rapper's newspaper headline clippings and shots of him rapping inside a bus.

"Africa has so much to offer," Kwesi Arthur told OkayAfrica in a recent interview. "So I think the world should be ready... and we'll bring the world to Africa. That's one thing... we always keep creating new things. At one point there was Azonto and that came to shaku shaku. Africa keeps recreating stuff and that's not going to end. We'll always keep creating."

Kwesi Arthur is set to drop a new EP soon this year. Watch the new clip for "One Stone" below.
