I first discovered and “blogged” this song 3 years ago. What seems like way-back-then, hip-hop coming out of Africa was gaining a lot of press and turning a lot of attention to Africa’s interpretation of hip-hop. Being a life time listener of the genre, I always find it fascinating listening to global interpretations of the American art. “Rise Up (feat. Amon China, E.J. Von Lyrik)” appears on the Cape Of Good Dope compilation put out on Africa Dope records, a South African record label. Red Lion’s interpretation of hip-hop is much more UK then USA, yet fans who appreciate all well executed hip-hop songs will not be disappointed.
