    "New York, New York, big city of dreams…"

    Hip Hop became a true global Culture, with a lot of cities worldwide, being typical for certain regional styles or mentioned as Hip Hop-capitals for some reasons. Anyway - throughout all these important cities on this earth, New York is something special and always will stay special to the history and culture of Hip Hop.

    A lot of MCs being from New York, produced and recorded Songs about their city or borough.

    I just wanted to feature a few songs and put a Playlist on Spotify together with HipHop Songs about New York…

    Enjoy and feel free to share!

    hiphopfightsback:

    L’Orange - Alone (ft. Blu)

    This remarkable hip-hop gem came out last year in November, and somehow managed to remain under my radar until just recently; therefore, I’ve officially added it to my list of “The Best 60 Hip-Hop Songs of 2012" at #8. Alone is the best song off of L’Orange’s mostly instrumental album The Mad Writer. The elegant samples found throughout this song are ingeniously utilized, and fit Blu’s mellow flow to a cue. Blu’s lyrical game is also straight poetry. It’s some of his best writing ever, which is saying a lot given he’s unarguably one of the best lyricists in the game.

    "I do belong in my skin, then again it’s just flesh. I’m 29, I can’t wait to see my daughter make a mess."

    —————————————————————————

    My Song Rating: 9.8 out of 10

    What does Hip Hop in Zambia sounds like?

    Good question… until a few weeks ago i just knew about Zambia, that it is somewhere in the south of the African continent and that the capital is the city of Lusaka. I had the opportunity to get to know an extraordinary radio host from Zambia, Atience from HOT 877 FM, who told me a bit about Zambian Hip Hop and so i became curious about Zambian Hip Hop. After I already learned something about Tanzanian Bongo Flavour, a few years ago in my own Hip Hop Radioshow Hip Hop Culture, i wanted to dig a bit deeper…

    So i checked the Internet and found this 2013 published list of Top 10 Hip Hop Emcees/Crews ("ZAMBIA’S 10 HOTTEST EMCEES FOR 2013 SO FAR" by Zed Hip Hop Journal)… after listening to 2-3 artists and their music, not always understanding what they are rapping about - since they mixeenglish with different Zambian languages, depending on where they come from, i got that idea, to use this list and post then chosen songs of those crews/emcess, that are mentioned in that list…

    So - let`s start…

    Number 10 on the list, but the first one to be presented is Klappa Heiz

    Klappa Heiz featuring Chef 187 - Ntoloma

    … next is Jay Rox aka Roxa… and I really like this one - having a real cool vibe and a great visual too!

    Jay Rox featuring Ikko Ace - Kazizi

    … let`s move on - from a fresh underground track to a more commercial approach by an emcee called Rec Rymer. Seems like Auto-Tune is still BIG in Zambia…

    Rec Rymer & Chulu Ackres - Moved On

    … I have to admit, i don`t like Auto-Tune too much, but Rec Rymer has definitely some rhyiming skills. Anyway, let`s get back to some harder styles, explicit lyrics and a great visual. The next artist is called Bobby East…

    Bobby East - Stopilla Sunzu

    … music of the next artist is not so easy to find, since he has a very “general” name for an emcee, called The Lyricist. Now google that! Anyway, i checked the above mentioned Top 10-List, where they mention a special song called “Namayo”, featuring a female singer called Maureen Lupo Lilanda. It turns out to be a really beautiful song with a female singer having a strong voice. There is no video - but the song appears on the Soundcloud-Site of Maureen Lilanda.



    … next one i was not sure about it`s really him, mentioned in that Top 10-List. The name of the MC is Kai and is member of a crew called Juggernaut. Well - i found a few songs of him and if i wouldn`t know better, i would say he is from the US! Anyway - no videos - but a Artist-Facebook page and a profile on Reverbnation. I chose a really cool song called “So easy”, having a fresh and catchy vibe…



    The next artist called Stevo is said to be a very aggressive MC. So - let`s check for something aggressive…

    Stevo - Nilipamutunda

    While looking for the above mentioned videos and artists i noticed, that the next artist was mentioned quite often: Chef 187. So i was curious to listen to some of his music and - WOW - there is this track, almost just in zambian language called Bemba (i beg your pardon if it is not!)… Breat Beat! Grat Voice! And even though i don`t understand him, i feel him having a great flow! By the way - he is number 3 on our Top 10-List!

    Chef 187 featuring Brasco - Sitiliti Music

    Let`s move on to an artist who knows about hip hop history. This MC is called Holstar and presents on “Past, Present and Future” a little insight in his Hip Hop-education on a real nice and fresh Boombap-Beat. Really cool.

    Holstar - Past, Present and Future

    …and here we are - featuring Number 1 of the Top 10-List of Zambian Hip Hop artists of 2013. It`s Mag 44 - said to be able to rap in rap in 3 of the most spoken language: English, Bemba and Nyanja and combining his lyrics with bible verses…

    Mag44 Ft. Pompi & Kenny Roc - Vichani

    Hope you liked this little journey into the world of Zambian Hip Hop… Guess i will dig even deeper and surely present some more of certain artists here on my blog.

    Share if you like it. Thank you!
