Get to Know: Congolese Leoniss‘ Fiery ‘Bango Nde Tembe’

SOUNDS LIKE:

Eminem that other time when he owned Jay Z on Renegade.

THE LOW-DOWN:

Congolese rapper Leoniss launched his EP Bilembo last month. It’s the second track of the project largely produced by Cameroonian beatmaker A.N.G

THE VERDICT:

On par with rappers’ rappers like Youssoupha, Danny Dan, and Akhenaton, and in an era where being lyrical isn’t all that popular, Leoniss’ Bango Nde Tembe boldly steps away from the expected. He balances being cerebral with being relatable; he’s socially engaging without preaching, and he has up his sleeve a heathy dose of subliminal bars aimed ready at any rapper willing to challenge his completely deserved title of king of Congolese Hip-hop.
