The end of the last and the beginning of this year in links

It’s a new year again and I am back from the holiday. My holiday was great by the way – thanks for asking – but now I am back starting the new year properly. Before I do that there’s been a lot of linkworthy stuff online while I’ve been away, so let me put it up here.

First off, Mystro’s annual UK Rap Up never disappoints me. In all honesty, in the end of the year besides the one Charlie Brooker does, I only look forward to Mystro’s end of the year review.

If I am being honest I am not too excited about this next video – not a huge fan of guns and such – but I do like the song. A lot. It’s from that Logic and Last Resort album I’ve been going on about recently.

Nice free download by Agent of Change aka DJ Mutiny Get Your Hands off Africa. The song samples some Fela Kuti and features Marcel Cartier, Akala and Nana D on the vocals.

Cape Town’s Driemanskap is gearing up for their next album Hlala Nam and today I read from the Twitter that there will be even one more video before the release of that from the previous one. I am looking forward to all of that, but here’s a free download by the crew member Ma-B.
Lastly, if you don’t know The Quaranteam, you better familiarise  yourself with this free EP.
