Ghana: The first of the R&D QoQ/5 On It mini-mixtapes!
What is QoQ? Acronym for Quality over Quantity.
With everything the cousins R&D try to get done in our lives, coming up with full length mixtapes regularly can be a bit much. So the “QoQ/5 On It” series is going to bring you a mini-mixtape every week, with 5 tracks each time.
As you know our track selection for mixtapes can be pretty random, as long as we’re digging it, we’re sharing it! So expect oldies, classics, varied genres & styles & exclusives when we can! Basically music you will hopefully enjoy!
So since we rep to the fullest, our first offering in the series is Ghana. 5 tracks from 5 of some the hottest artists on the local music scene. Watch out for these 5 in 2009 – BIG THINGS!
Irene Logan, now a solo artist, is looking to make her mark on African R&B. She features Asem on her smash single “Run Away“. She is signed to Lynx & with a stellar team behind her, expect greatness!
Sarkodie, with a new album released hot off the press this Easter weekend gone, is a lyrical force to contend with! His song “Borga” features J-Town on the hook, it is a solid offering from is consistent debut LP “Makye”. The album also features Sway DaSafo, R2Bees, Jayso & many more.
Ayigbe Edem, a “country man” after my own heart, with his confident flow & great swagger, is asking “where the ladies at?” on “Nyornuviade“. Anyone who knows ladies knows pairing with Kwabena Kwabena can only be a good thing!
Macho Rapper, the self proclaimed “only Macho Rapper in West Africa”. Macho Rapper is an underground artist I want to shed light on, his music is fun & I love the whole Macho thing – LOL! On “Twi Pop” a yet to be released underground hit featuring Castro the Destroyer & Wanlov the Kubolor. Heavyweight co-signs for this unsigned artist!
Sonni Ballie, has been away for a minute – now he’s back! This time without Slim Buster, but solo with “When You’re Gone“. A track on heavy rotation on my iPod! Samini better come correct or make way for the new king of GH Reggae!
