World hip-hop band, Gibrilville is challenging and attempting to change the misconceptions about the large continent in their track “Streets of Africa” featuring Dead Prez’ M1.
The track starts off with a few stereotypes like how they need an M16 to travel the streets but soon the band’s lead rhymer switches it up and talks about big mansions, water fountains and indoor swimming pools — all things that can also be found throughout the massive continent.
According to a press release from Gibilville, their debut album, The Foreigner JJC Deluxe, chronicles “the story of a young African artist that redefines the modern day griot experience by fusing African-American Hip-hop and promoting Africa through his music.”
Although the track, “Streets of Africa” could have been executed better (rhymes are often lackluster and quality isn’t great, it’s overall a solid track and the video is pretty tight which makes their 17-track debut album, The Foreigner JJC Deluxe, worth checking out.
