#nowPlaying COLORS by Tobe Nwigwe

(this post was originally written in September of 2018, but was stuck in draft mode, so when I found it, I decided y'all needed it in ya lives...)
The new danger in my headphones right now is that dude Tobe Nwigwe ("WEE gway"), a young dude who shows that hip hop is in good hands...

COLOR is the latest of Nwigwe's weekly #GetTwistedSundays video series.  If cats all over the country aren't buzzing about this cat, they need to be.

My first exposure to this spiritually and lyrically gifted Nigerian emcee was from my dude Samal posting the video for HEATROCK on Facebook.  

I was about as weirded out by Nwigwe's presentation as I was mesmerized by it.  While his sound initially felt like a lotta cats I can't stand, his conscious, stereotype-defying rhymes jumped at me and rang my rap nerd bell right away.

EDIT- As I am posting this in September 2020, Tobe 'nem got a virtual show coming up. You should totally go.

Have great day!

Samax Amen is a professional Content Developer, Illustrator and Cartoonist. He is the artist of many great comics you never heard of like Herman Heed, Champion of Children, The Brother and The World As You Know It. He even writes and draws his own comics, like Dare: The Adventures of Darius Davidson, Spontaneous, and Manchild when he gets around to it. Because making comics is hard and stuff, he started GhettoManga as a blog in 2006 and as a print magazine in 2008.
