Afrobeats Hip-Hop

Hip-hop and Afrobeats have always been best friends. There’s something about how the energy and vibrance of hip-hop complements the luster and shine Afrobeats has to offer. With their versatility and readiness to collaborate, Afrobeats artists can easily hop on multiple sounds and hip-hop has proven to be a fan favourite. Artists aren’t oblivious to the magic that happens when the two genres come together on a record and they’ve consistently delivered exciting tracks in that light. Whether an Afrobeats singer tag teams with a hip-hop artist on their record or adds a verse to an already existing hip-hop track, the chemistry is always immaculate.
