QoQ/5 On It… Ghana

5-on-ghanaGhana: 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!
