Asheru - Building A Bridge To Africa With Hip-Hop
Tuesday, December 17, 2013

If you take a look at Asheru’s discography you might think he’s a bit of an insomniac. The Unspoken Heard member released Sleepless In D.C. in 2006, quickly following it with Sleepless in Japan. Now, seven years, two Boondocks mixtapes, and an EP later, he’s back to being up late again with Sleepless In Soweto.

This time around Asheru is tackling a topic that’s especially close to his heart, as he looks to use hip-hop to show the world the unique bonds between African-Americans and Africans. I caught up with Asheru to find out more about the project, including what led to his first visit to Africa, and what he’s learned during his numerous extended stays there. Asheru also discussed which influences of African hip-hop he hopes rubs off on American hip-hop, and his experience opening for Kanye West.
