We all know this voice. Few artists have shaped Hip Hop in the last 20 years like New York native Jay-Z. South Africa DJ genius DJ Papercutt has created an amazing Audio Documentary Remix Project called ‘Jay-Z – The African Way‘. He remixed famous Jay-Z tracks with songs of great African artists like Miriam Makeba, Fela Kuti, Hugh Masekela, etc.
DJ Papercutt has this to say: “In this first installment the majority of it has a South African sound because I’m from South Africa myself, and as this is the first installment of the series I would like my people at home to vibe to it and grasp the concept. The African Way is an ongoing series, so later on I will put together Nas: The African Way and then Kanye West: The African Way.” We can’t wait for the upcoming series products.
