Balkan Bump – Aymo (Feat. Talib Kweli)

Self-described as an ethnomusicologist, Balkan Bump has put out “Aymo,” an incredible fusion of hip-hop, house, and non-western instrumentation. As you might guess from his name, the single features a Balkan horn and string section that Talib Kweli raps over with ceaseless swagger and passion. Combine all that with some expert production value, and you’ve got something worth holding onto.
