The collaborations by African artists with their American counterparts keep coming and we are not complaining! We are particularly excited about the collaborations (collabo) by Africa’s hip-hop artists. For so many reasons best left for a lengthier article/post, we feel there is a higher probability African artists, with collabos such as these, can make Africa’s music (African hip-hop) more mainstream in households across America. In any event, the latest collabo is that of Ladybrille’s Artist to Watch, D-Black! D-Black, who is always on his hustle, releases a couple of new tracks this week one of which is ‘Bang ’em Down’ featuring American rapper Jim Jones. Check on it and watch this space for his other new releases.[audio:https://ladybrille.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/D-Black-Jim-Jones-Bang-em-down.mp3|titles=D-Black & Jim Jones – Bang ’em down]
