Fid Q and MC Midnight (Tanzania)

Charlie Ahearn hosts the star MC Fid Q and MC Midnight, both from Tanzania, when they stopped by the Clocktower recording studios in 2011. They share some fresh tracks complete with Swahili rhymes, extraordinary African singers, and live freestyles both in-session and from a Brooklyn backyard party. Fid Q drops a potent mix of music he loves and talks about the state of African hip hop. Tega sikio muziki mzuri sana.
