Check out the EP from Liberian MC Ko-Bena
Listening to his music there seems to be allot of influences beyond hip hop.
You can hear some sounds similar to Calypso, EDM, and of course hiphop
Its far from your typical NY beats and rhymes.
Ko-Bena is the African Dream. He is originally from Liberia. Back-home, he knew only about Tupac and Biggie. He grew up listening to the late Lucky Dube. He fled his country doing a civil war when he was young. He came to the states in 1998. His love for rap started when he heard Nas Stillmatic Album.
