Obama – the mixtape challenge!

ObamaFew politicians have been able to to inspire artistic creativity as much as Barack Obama – the songs out there are numerous and diverse so i though it would only be right to put out a mixtape challenge in honor but first of all lets look at the tunes out there – I am sure there are many songs we are missing but here is the list we have for now. feel free to add more

 

 

 

 

Kenya

Extra Golden – Obama (this one came out before he even ran for POTUS)
Tony Nyadundo – Obama!! (Not to be left behind he come out with 30 minutes song )

 

Africa

 

Other African countries have not been left behind though .

 

Blacka Rasta – Barack Obama!! This some crunk stuff from Ghana
Jojeba – Ready To Go – this is an artist from cameroon with a makossa tune.

 

Based on music alone u you would think Barack is from jamaica. My favorites tune
so far is Movados remix of the rock

 

Jamaica and Caribbean
-Movado – we need Barack (the rock rmx/mission riddim)
-Damian Marley – also check this out
– Cocoa Tea – Barack Obama (This is a big tune been killing parties here in the US for a minute)
-Might Sparrow – Barack the magnificient This calypso tune is probably the most thoughtful composition (if this guy had linked up with M.O.I he would have been a billionaire)

 

Then there is the reggaeton tunes.
-Don Omar – Como se Dice

 

Finally there is this song from japan – good nursery rhyme

 

USA:

 

-Nas – Black President
– Will. iam – Yes we Can [this was a huge Youtube phenomenon] and also this
– Ludacris – Obama is here – This caused a major controversy

DJ Mista Dru – Local Motives

Some 2008 Local Motive from DJ Mista Dru, his US tour is slated to be one of the few interesting Kenyan DJ tours. Most Kenyan DJs come to the US on tour and do the same thing thats being done over and over again. Meaning one event will have like 15 DJs so you never really get to enjoy the headlining act. Hell I cant remember when was the last time I saw a DJ from Kenya play for more than two hours.

So the Dru Tour is something we have been working on for a while and we hope that the experience will be worth all the hype – For now Enjoy some of his DJ Mixxes made specifically for GetMziki
