There are not nearly enough female rappers bringing the heat on the continent, so we’re quick to get excited when an African femcee drops some fire.
Enter: Nadia Nakai
The self-styled South African rap queen starts 2015 on a strong note with Saka Wena, a dope Ice Prince-assisted track produced by 66 Beats. Two potent verses, with the Chocolate City star going hard in-between, a catchy hook and an eclectic instrumental make for a jam. Nadia Nakai’s debut album arrives later this year and Ice Prince’s Trash Can EP is out now.
