Grandpa Government- Fimbo ya Tatu

I just got this record today and with them releasing the video today simultaneously, it’s only fair I show case it while it’s still hot. When Dan sent me this record I knew what to expect from the track. Here is an excerpt of what I said before about Grandpa records, their sound, music and artists.

They’ve been on the grind by building their fan base by releasing various records and doing various shows and concerts across East Africa. In the process, they’ve also found and perfected their own sound and lane.

Fimbo ya Tatu features Wavinya , KenRazy , Visita , Lil Sliq , Renee , Wyre , Dufla Diligon , Sosuun , Chief Moses , U.B , Sauti Sol and although some of the artists just are on the chorus, them appearing on the video is a big testament to how 254 artists collabo and how they should be rocking together for the future.

Grandpa Records got another hit here

Brand New: Lobo, UB & Kenrazy – Fuata Ndoto yako

Ive had this song for a while but due to my hectic schedule lately I have been unable to update the site – hopefully my team has managed updates as much as they could. That said, I got this track from a guy called Lobo, UB and Kenrazy. Its an interesting track – Ive heard of UB back in the day from Ukoo Fulani and that whole Mau Mau Camp and of course Kenrazy has been hitting the local scene since his Tichi hit. Maybe someone can shed some light on who LOBO is.

I kinda like this track, its not a club banger – but its definitely a car banger and something you can listen to on a lose friday on your way to the club. I threw in the instrumental and accapella for the DJs to go crazy with it. Enjoy the track,..

Brand New: Kenrazy feat Kizob – Kicheche

Honestly when DJ Kelz sent me this track from the Jomino camp I was like aight aight here comes some interesting collabo between Razy and Bongo artist Kizob. I really didn’t think much about the track itself I was more interested in who Kizob is… It seems Tanzania is churning out a new artist every month, so to me this collabo sits on the fence simply because I don’t know who Kizob is, but that’s not an excuse.

I think the track is not balanced – am not sure who is carrying the beat better Kenrazy or Kizob, overall I cant see this track living outside this blog. I will be surprised if this song has blown up or if it will blow up to be compared to Tichi standards. Kicheche is a lose lose chile – its Tanzanian slang that has sipped its way into Sheng and ive heard a few people talking about Kicheche here and there. That said though my personal opinion is that this track is still wanting – missing something. I am also concerned about Jomino – the beats sound too similar, the fruits not falling so far from the tree with these signature beats. Can Jomino reinvent himself? Can something different come out of that kitchen? I dont know but i find the whole beat mapping thing too similar in all Jomino tracks.

Either way enjoy the track here:

Brand New: Kenrazy, DNA, Kaya – Mziki (GetMziki Exclusive***)

When Danny dropped this track on my laps today, I wanted to sit on it and wait for a little while, but jama!!! the more I listen to this song am amazed at the different talents in Kenya. This track definitely sounds JOMINO-ish (actually very Banjuka reloaded ish). You cant mistake the production style, but needless to say the hook, the flow, the collaboration and the delivery is off the chains.

I am definitely hooked on to DNA’s voice, that cat should have been a radio presenter – deep voiced MC in Kanye “East” Shades, his image has been up to par and he seems to maintain his artist credibility at all times. To me if you are an artists you need to be in character at all times in order to maintain your image – and those white shades were at some point synonymous with DNA (Mr. Banjuka). KenRazy for me still has a lot to do to prove himself as an artists, I drew close similarities between him and JuaCali after Tichi – but consistency has been an issue… Kaya is an artist I am not familiar with but I am hoping with time I will get fairly acquainted with his music.

We have a lot more music ready for December since we want to push all 2008 material out the door before the end of the year. We also will do a countdown for the hottest songs and artists of 2008. But for now enjoy this song – its on FIRE… Play it a few more times..

Usikatsie NGOMAAAAA!!

Kenrazy – Tichi

KENRAZY-2

Kenrazy an upcoming Kenyan sensation released this hit track afew months ago. Critics compared him to JuaCali because his flow sounded and felt the same, however after a few spins you eventually realize that the two artists are totally different. On an interview with Jua Cali one day about being compared to Kenrazy, Jua Cali told me, he is not worried about the similarities, he thinks consistency is what defines an artists. Jua Cali may have been right, we will see how long Kenrazy stays on the charts considering his (Rudia Track) is not as big as this one – Ti Chi…
