I was reading this Guardian article (http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/nov/06/reclusive-french-rap-duo-shun-record-deal-shoot-to-top-itunes-chart) and was wondering if you all had some non-English rap favourites as well. Could be any language I guess. Or is everybody here from either the UK or the US?

Some of my recent favourites, all Dutch:

Now, I wonder is it my Dutch bias, or is this stuff just really good? Note, I never really liked Dutch rap that much but 2015 has seen such amazing tunes, as posted above. Wish I could see some stuff from other European countries but i'm not that deep into non-English rap apart from the stuff being made in my heimat.

Really like that.

That vocal melody and harmony that appears at 0.23, 0.27 and throughout really reminds me of something. Maybe an afrobeats or dancehall thing or something nuumish (garage or funky)? Ring any bells, anyone?

this is so good, thanks for sharing. is afro trap a widely used label now? had only heard the mhd bits, but is there a wider scene emerging under this banner? or has already emerged?

I'm not sure, I think MHD started it but there's a lot of stuff on youtube under the afro trap hashtag. Check out some more Y DU V btw, they are quite nice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLMrLf3zyvE.

There's something about being in a shop, specially a shop for young people, like top shop, that can make everything sound amazing. It adds complexity by layering in profound capitalist alienation and the consciousness of ageing and dying over otherwise textureless, vacuous digital pop

When I asked the shop assistant what the song was called that's word for word what he said to me.

It's a very sensuous melancholy. Like that feeling you get sometimes when you need to do a big shit and you're holding on to it.

do yourself a favor + watch the whole thing (or skip to where the music starts about a minute in)

catchy af self-aware Urdu political rap, plus Pakistani Nate Dogg on the chorus
