Continuing with the series... another short documentary (30 minutes) courtesy of AfricanHipHop.com in celebration of its 15th year online; and as part of that celebration, the site will be sharing even more short works like this that take a look at hip-hop within the African continent.

Hali Halisi (a Swahili expression meaning “the real situation”) portrays rap as an alternative medium in Tanzania.

The film centers around the most popular emcees at the time, including Mr II (Sugu), Deplowmatz, Gangwe Mobb, GWM, X Plastaz and Bantu Pound.
