On a slow news Friday, something to add to your watch list for the weekend...

Here's a look at the hip-hop in Tanzania, in a short documentary (30 minutes) titled Hali Halisi (a Swahili expression meaning “the real situation”), which portrays rap as an alternative medium in Tanzania. 

In the short film, rappers and experts give their views on the emerging hip hop scenes of Dar es Salaam and the island of Zanzibar, and their thoughts on the importance of rap as a medium for communication and an instrument of change. 

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