30 days of Tanzanian hip hop: Day 1

30 days of Tanzanian hip hop: Day 1 – Hip hop super producer Duke. One of the hardest working heads in TZ hip hop. He’s got his own distribution company and is a major part of Tamaduni Muzik and the weekly Hip Hop Kilinge (cypher) in Dar es Salaam at the New Msasani Club. It was hard to get him to agree to step in front of the camera, and even harder to fit into his schedule. But his love of vinyl & different types of music set him apart from most.
