Almost a year in the making, here is The Sequel, the second mixtape created entirely by members of the Africanhiphop.com forums. The first collection, called ‘Africanhiphop: the Naija chapter’ (2007) gained a lot of interest worldwide (read up here and download here).
Like its predecessor, this new volume was initiated in the discussion forums and most communication happened right there (this thread). It took a while for all contributions to be sent in, but the result is stunning. The Sequel shows the power of the joined forces of the online African hip hop community and it’s a good example of music production and distribution in the modern age.
Overseen by MHP, The Sequel features beats by five different producers and vocals by emcees from all over the continent.
Download the mixtape here (zip file, 69 MB). You can also preview/stream the individual tracks here (Reverbnation).

Love it.. hope to be on the next mission.
African Hip hop is really all i can listen to right now.. and this is a rocker..
January 28, 2010 (15:58)
This was a very crazy mixtape.All track were straight fire.My fav tracks were EYE FOR AN EYE by Synik…a very dope song by a very dope lyricist.i heard other songs of his and the guys flames burn no doubt,so mcs be on the lookout for this kid.And the second song is the MADLY created PLACES IVE BEEN by non other than Da Naymliss(yes thats the way he spells the name cos ive met him in person).I think NAIJA should watch out for this kid cos hes no doubt a step ahead especially wit his wordplays and flexibility.
February 4, 2010 (14:08)
