Pan African Rap: Dopeboy DMG, Pa Salieu & Skillibeng

Also including new music from Mura Masa, Ciggy Blacc, BackRoad Gee, Chino Kidd, MR LG and Ril Vin.

Each week Pan African Music scours the digital vaults for the latest and greatest rap from across the African continent and its diaspora. Drill, trap, grime, Afropop, amapiano, coupé-décalé, electro mahragan… all these sub-genres and interpretations make an appearance, attesting to hip-hop’s power to unite the world with indomitable flows and creative melodies. Rap is now the world’s music, and our pan-African selection is only scratching the surface. If it’s here, it means we think it bumps, and would be confident sharing it with hip-hop heads everywhere. We encourage you to do the same.

This week’s Pan African Rap roundup features a suggestive banger, Dopeboy’s entangled in an ominous business, Ciggy Blacc’s reinterpretation of the Haïtian Kompa, BackRoad Gee’s adlibs and a synchronised dancing session supervised by promising Tanzanian artist Chino Kidd.

Follow and share our Pan African Rap playlist on Spotify and Deezer for the entire selection.

Mura Masa
“blessing me” feat. Pa Salieu and Skillibeng

United-Kingdom, May 25th, 2022

Guernsey-born producer Mura Masa has unveiled “Blessing me”, a track from his upcoming album demon time, featuring dancehall rap mainstay Skillibeng along with British-Gambian rapper Pa Salieu. Together, they produced this sensual banger accompanied by an evocative matrix-like visual.

Dopeboy DMG

Senegal, May 27th, 2022

Rising Senegalese talent Dopeboy DMG dropped a new single entitled “Dërëm”. In the clip, the driller oversees a mysterious uranium-looking drug business surrounded by his ominous followers with glowing red eyes.

Ciggy Blacc

United-States, May 20th, 2022

Ciggy Blacc gives a new interpretation of the Haitian genre “Kompa” which gives its name to the single. The distinctive synthesized tune gives the tempo but the American rapper manages to keep the pace, without taking time to catch his breath, surrounded by his pumped crew in a car junkyard.

BackRoad Gee
“Under Attack”

United-Kingdom, May 19th, 2022

BackRoad Gee returns in “Under Attack”, an unhinged single punctuated by the Londonese East End rapper’s ad libs which compliment the dark unsettling instrumental reminiscent of slavic folk tunes. The clip itself also gives much to comment upon: it is full of flashing visual and interesting choreography in warehouse settings.

Chino Kidd
“Sina Msosi” feat. Ril Vin and MR lG

Tanzania, May 7th, 2022

Up-and-coming Tanzanian artist Chino Kidd teams up with fellow Tanzanian rapper Ril Vin for a polished synchronised dancing session in “SINA MSOSI” produced by Mr Lg. This debut single seems to have been specifically designed for dancefloors.
