Fidstyle Friday Week 24 with Stamina

The showcase of Tanzania’s new era in its Hip Hop music scene continues on FidStyle Friday! This week we have STAMINA, an up-and-coming MC reppin’ Morogoro — mji kasoro bahari.

A few seconds into the episode it becomes evident that this young MC has a unique stamina of Swahili and English wordplay. Between the boom and the bap of the beats he sews, locks and re-sews Swahili words and comes up with bars like  “kayumba kasumba iache mapema/ mwanayumba ameshayumba hadi chege hamtaki tena”.

When asked who are his major influences on his lyrical style, he mentions Fid Q as a frontline, as well as artists like Common, Red Man, and Master Ace. He opens up and talks distinctions between his style to that of commercial, ring-tone-like Hip Hop. He goes on and defends eloquently his lyrical style and professes not to dumb-down his lyrics for commercial reasons. I mean, there are enough Swahili Hip Hop fans out-there with stamina to his kind of lyricism.

Look out for his album coming out in November 2012. Enjoy the episode after the jump!
