Video: Tumi and the Volume's "Asinamali"

Check out this brand new video from one of South Africa's premiere hip-hop bands, Tumi and the Volume. "Asinamali", the single off their latest and third album Pick A Dream - which was  nominated in the best rap album category at the South African Music Awards this year -  literally translates as 'I have no money' (side note: we feel your pain), and ponders the relationship between fame, money and all that comes with it. Shot in a day inside of a studio in Northern Johannesburg, we're really digging the retro threads and toys.


If you haven't heard the album yet (released last April), you can take a listen here.
