Video: D'Banj Featuring Snoop Dogg 'Mr. Endowed Remix'

Watch the music video for D'Banj's "Mr. Endowed Remix" featuring Snoop Dogg.

Nigerian rapper D'Banj recently released the "Mr. Endowed" remix featuring Snoop Dogg, in what has to be one of the most high-profile collaborations between a domestically-based African rapper and an American rapper. The track is produced by Don Jazzy, owner of Mo' Hits Records, who is now rumored to be working on a collaboration with Kanye West, and potentially Jay-Z and Beyonce as well. The "Mr. Endowed" remix is a relatively predictable song about money (and other indulgences) with a catchy uptempo, afro-style beat that is sure to be a hit in the clubs. Regardless of how you feel about the song, this is without question a major step up in exposure for hip-hop from the continent.
