A few years back I went to an Alkoholics concert in London and had my world turned out by a Nigerian rapper, who jumped up on stage talking about pride in where you're from, big bootied girls, and cars with big rims. I couldn't help myself from chuckling at the braggadocios display, but from that day I was hooked, instilled with a pride that I still carry. The rapper was JJC, and he was my introduction to African Rap. Today Nigeria has a booming industry, African Rap (and more) has gone global, and JJC is back with a pan African pride tune that would make Marcus Garvey proud.
Shout out to... Hey Vamanos... is that Brixton?
