Crate digging in Shoreditchand came across this unicorn. No Sell Out by Malcolm X is actually a record by drummer Keith Leblanc who samples speeches by the civil rights icon. #dandano #malcolmx #nosellout #keithleblanc #sampling #hiphop #cratedigging #vinylcollection #coverart #albumcover #africanmusicclassics

Can only dream of being as wavy as Rex Omar was on this album cover. Burger Highlife legend and all star. This album opens with what is possibly his biggest song of all time, Abiba. What are your memories of Rex Omar?

Kyekyeku and Ghanalogue Highlife, live in concert at Alliance Française Accra. Accra was blessed to have Kyekyeku baptize Highlife fans with his ever growing catalogue of rich sounds. It was my first time seeing him perform since Sabolai radio 2014, and how he has grown!!! Really impressed with his commanding display blending showmanship and respect for the audience. His banding was also sounding terrific. You do not want to miss another performance from him. All images by @mansah_hakeem .

M.anifest ‎– Immigrant Chronicles: Coming To America (2011) via Singitdamnit Music. Hip hop.
.
.
.
Modern day classics. This second album from @manifestive was his introduction to the mainstream Ghana music scene with songs like Coming to America and Asa. His hard hitting lyricism and uncanny sense of wit gave the songs a refreshing familiarity. Listening back to it and comparing it to his follow up tapes, it seems M.anifest was still soul searching for his sound. These days his approach is much more measure. Still immigrant chronicles might be his best project yet due to its gritty and organic nature. Cover photography by Wale Agboola and design by Cody Tesnow.
