Baloji - Kinshasa Hip Hop

Now for something a bit different, for a change. This is a hotly awaited release by Kinshasa-Brussels Hip Hop artist Baloji. He features some "catcheurs" from the Kinshasa slums. It's a kind of mixture of Mexican Dia de los muertos, modern wrestling and traditional Congolese secret societies.
