Video: Spoek Mathambo, "Mshini Wam"



When Spoek tweeted this morning asking about whether his silk shirt game was better than Nelson Mandela's, we thought to ourselves, "Whoa, this one's a tough one." Not for nothing, Spoek's freshness is beyond words—or if you'd like to borrow one from his hometown of Soweto, he is pure AYOBA! The video begins in a barbershop because all fresh dudes know you ain't fly without the proper haircut and then it just continues to get iller. Spoek isn't just on point sartorially, the political undertones of this song have much meaning. Any one of the kids dancing in the video could have a child soldier counterpart with his own Mshini Wam. So get fresh, get lite and stay aware, Spoek is here to blow your minds. Mshini Wam the LP drops September 13th on BBE.
