African hip hop radio – Leap Day edition

The February edition of African hip hop radio was recorded on Leap Day (February 29), a date that occurs only once in every four years. To stay true to this Limited Edition theme, Amal, J4 and dj Threesixty have brought out some rarely heard tunes, both new and old.

From a new track by ex PNB member Leslyman (Dr Congo) to a fresh cut by Tanzania’s Soggy Doggy, the mysterious collabo by Gebaste Rhymes and a veteran South African hip hop producer, a new release by Snazz the Dictator (Cashless society, see pic above) and even a Senegalese hip hop track by Matador, produced by our own Dj Threesixty (Bamba Nazar) which saw the light of day without him knowing it was out.

The second hour of our monthly show on Red Light Radio is mostly uptempo tunes from Ghana, Nigeria and France. Not bad for a Leap Day right? Listen below or click the arrow to download this show to your computer.
