Bas actually raps raps in this song, and I absolutely love it!

Bas is undeniably one of the most talented rappers in the game. Unfortunately, not enough people are aware of this fact because he doesn’t frequently release major projects (His last album, Milky Way, dropped in 2018). The good news is this: Bas is currently gearing up for the release of a new album titled We Only Talk About Real S*** When We’re F****d Up (What a fantastic title, by the way). Just yesterday, he treated us to a new single from the album titled “Khartoum.”

Lately, Bas has been focused more on singing than rapping. One of his biggest singles this year, “Passport Bros,” featured him and Cole singing like dudes on vacation who just finished throwing back Mojitos. However, in “Khartoum,” we hear serious bars from the New York native. In the song, which is driven by a soothing Afrobeat beat and features infectious vocals from Afrobeat star Adekunle Gold, Bas delivers hard-hitting raps that discuss global issues and his family’s challenging times. Personally, I appreciate the traditional song structure and the passion displayed by both artists.

Give “Khartoum” a shot below.
