Australian-Zimbabwean Rapper Tkay Maidza's 'Switch Tape'

Watch Australian-Zimbabwean 18-year-old rapper Tkay Maidza's video for "U-hu" & Bok Bok-produced "Finish Them."


Australian-based, Zimbabwean-born 18-year-old Tkay Maidza jumped on the scene earlier this year with the bubbly "U-Huh," a track that blends her agile raps with an addictive, electronic chorus that could fit on any current pop radio hit. Her style's been justly compared by several outlets to Azealia Banks (minus the drama) — her recent "Finish Them" collaboration with South London producer Bok Bok does carry a similar "212" punch to it. Maidza's just dropped her 18-track debut Switch Tape mixtape which continues her UK club explorations. Stream Switch Tape now via The Fader (full tracklist underneath) and check out the mixtape inclusions "U-Huh" & "Finish Them" below.
