Hip Hop From Around The World: Kafa Beanz

For those of you who have never heard of Kafa Beanz they are a ethio-hip hop group based in the DMV, Their sound consists of some old school Ethiopian jazz mixed with some modern day hip-hop very reminiscent of 90’s rap groups or for those of you who don’t about that (real hip-hop) lol. The group consists of female MC B-Sheba, Grammy nominated singer Wayna, rapper Gabriel Teodros, and rapper BurntFace. I first discovered them when I was online one night searching for a female Ethiopian rapper, because I knew there had to be others besides Lola Monroe out there. I came across a video of B-Sheba and was blown away! I mean real talk this girl has major talent and is better than many of the new female rappers that are in the game right now it’s just sad that she is not getting the same recognition. Anyways as I continued to research her I learned that her along with two other Ethiopian rappers and one other Ethiopian singer teamed up to create what is now known as Kafa Beanz. Honestly I am proud to see fellow Ethiopian-Americans out there trying something new and making a name for themselves Im very excited to see where this goes. Kafa Beanz debut The Kafa Beanz: Andromeda: The Chronicles of Blackopia Vol. 1 can be bought/downloaded on AddisTunes.com
here also below are two of there videos, on the first vid peep B-sheba spittin the truth! the second video is by Gabriel Teodros and the song has a very powerful message. oh and if you where wondering who that beautiful woman was in his video it was none other than the rap queen herself B-Sheba. 🙂
