Hip Hop iz Slovenije

While I am unapologetically in the school of thought that (save a few choice MC Solaar tracks) the only good rappers are American, I didn't want that opinion to stand in the way of me giving props to a young creative brother in our all-too-tiny community of African people in Slovenia. I had the chance to see a brief performance by Murat & Jose at the very wonderful opening of Kolovrateater in Ljubljana on Friday night, and I gotta give them props for doing an earnest job of things.


In case you're wondering, Jose's father comes from the country of Burundi (don't be ashamed I had to recheck where it was on the map too).

Here's one of their videos for their track "Postan ti sam".

they are really cool, i saw them in september when there was a free concert in LJ with siddharta and gorillaz sound system, my fav song was the one they sang with siddharta 'od ljudi za ljudi'.

I absolutely love Murat&Jose. I think they make good music and their lyrics actually SAY something. Glad you like them, Camille.
