Awesome Tapes From Africa: Juma Nature

So here's some Tanzanian bongo flava from the early aughties, the debut recording from Juma Nature. If you're into African rap, this is a pretty epic tape. Why do I love old school rap from Africa so much? Things have developed across the continent such that these tapes make me feel like I'm listening to Masta Ace or Rakim, kinda out-dated-sounding but so undeniably groundbreaking and jammin. - download at Awesome Tapes From Africa-blog

On Le Guess Who? (Thursday 25 November) Awesome Tapes From Africa blogger/dj Brian Shimkovitz will do a DJ-set, without LPs, CDs or iPod, but with a suitcase full of amazing cassettes.
