Swahili song Cheza – X Plastaz (African rap)

October 27, 2008 by · 19 Comments 

No Bongo flava: strictly Tanzanian hip hop with Kiswahili and Maasai lyrics.

Latest video by Tanzanian rap group X Plastaz who toured the world with their trademark Maasai hip hop style. After the conscious rap song Nini dhambi, the new video Cheza (‘dance’) is about having a good time. It shows rare on-stage and behind-the-scenes footage from their tours in Europe (Brussels, Amsterdam, London), South America (Brazil: Rio and Salvador) and Gabon (Libreville at Gabao hip hop festival).

With raps by the late Faza Nelly and a beat made by Dutch producer Kid Sundance with a sound reminiscent of Slum Village or Jdilla / Jay Dee.

Edit: Marc Schapink, post production: Thomas Gesthuizen (J4) & Paul Kempe.
Song produced by Kid Sundance

NB this clip is slightly off sync, a youtube problem. I will try to upload another format that will cause less sync issues.

See www.xplastaz.com and www.myspace.com/xplastaz for more about X Plastaz.
