If you’re into Kenyan hip hop you probably heard last year’s BLNRB – Welcome to the Madhouse compilation, a cd resulting from an exchange program run by Nairobi’s Goethe Institute and released on German label OutHere records on which German producers and Kenyan vocalists come together.
The first single (even pressed on 12 inch) and one of the best tracks from the album was ‘Monkeyflip’, a collabo between Berlin based producer Modeselektor and veteran emcees Nazizi (Necessary Noize) and Abbas (ex K South). As the song was recorded in 2010 and released last year, the video comes a bit late but it’s been worth the wait – check out Abbas and Nazizi crushing the Nairobi cityscape!
The seven other music videos recorded as part of the project can be found here and here’s a sort of ‘Making of’ documentary (38 minutes):
