Mixtape: Go with the Flow – Afrobeat meets Hiphop

“Fela is the one African figure who’s story resonates with modern American hiphop culture.” As we celebrate the 85th birthday of Fela Kuti and the 50th anniversary of global hiphop culture, I wanted to show how perfectly the two match. Afrobeat and hiphop music, rap, consciousness… they just mesh as if they were meant to be together. Just imagine a breakdance cypher on one of these tracks. Check out the MC’s laying their rhymes on these tunes. It just flows!
