A renowned hip hop artist and politically conscious activist, Smockey always keeps a sharp eye on what’s happening in Burkina Faso. On his latest album, “Pre’volution”, once again he finds himself in the midst of political tensions and military conflicts that plague his country.

Despite its laid back atmosphere, the lead single, “On Passe À L’attaque”, bears the mark of these turbulent times, demonstrating the profound connection between music and the most pressing issues in the lives of ordinary people.

You can stream “Pre’volution” on Spotify.
