Man, I love Tanzanian bongo flava genius Professor Jay. This tape from 2001—his first album—is so good it makes the one I previously posted seem almost dull now. This must be the most awesome African hip-hop I've heard since Baloji tore the roof off Joe's Pub that one time. Thanks to Peter in Berlin for this.

Awesome Tapes from Africa DJ set this Friday at Zebulon in Williamsburg with DJ Brad Loving, 10-4, FREE.
