from last year but just discovered Ukrainian rapper Alina Pash who raps over dance grooves that incorporate Ukrainian folk music, both the tracks she has released so far are fantastic

Sarkodie is Ghana’s biggest rapper, but I find his singles very hit or miss these days. This new one is banging though, thanks in no small part to Akan, Ghana’s best new rapper:

Sarkodie ft. Akan • All Die Be Die

(Akan’s Onipa Akoma album, released in 2017, is extremely good btw. It was #4 on my 2018 ballot, although I somehow never stanned for it.)
