For the past few months, Obey You Collective: South Africa has investigated the country’s exciting street culture through a series of documentary-style videos, photography and conversational interviews with a few of the nation’s young, hardworking artists and tastemakers. The soundtrack to these videos was consistently homegrown, featuring beatsmiths, rappers and songwriters from all over South Africa. Since the series is over, we thought we’d round up the featured songs into one handy Soundcloud playlist—an inclusive but not exhaustive audio tour of their pocket of the world. There’s a ton of jams on here. Some are more overlooked than others, but they’re all good enough to warrant a little extra shine. Stream the entire playlist below and revisit all of the Obey You Collective: South Africa coverage right here.
