Boomkat Product Review:
Straight outta Eastern Congo, Will’Stone aka the “Lion of Goma” delivers dread heavy rap on Slikback & Nyege Nyege Tapes’ Hakuna Kulala label
Hailing from the Eastern Congo city of Goma, Will’Stone’s barking, stentorian style has come to define the sound of his city’s war torn youth. On ‘Mbv5’ he’s joined by Kampala-based Congolese MC, Le Bon to spray fire over a crushingly heavy groove built from drop forge drums and sweltering, even panicked patina of field recordings, and in a way that wouldn’t sound outta place on JPEGMAFIA’s ‘Veteran’. Cutthroat, hardcore business.
Not to be missed!
