Stop All This Boogaloo Rudeboy!

Safi Abdullah – Afrika is Burning (from Rebel Soca 1989)

An anti-rudeboy, anti-disco, anti-freaking, anti-boogaloo earlier Soca track from this weird CD I found at the Harold Washington Library. It’s not very soca and not very interesting production wise, but the hook is “Africa is burning, and the black man here is doing the freak” and provides some contrast to all the fuckin songs pouring out of the Caribbean.

I’m definitely not anti-rudeboy though.
