T Man – Jump Up (From Ayiti Diasporap 4 Life vol 1 2008)
I’m not exactly helping out with the situation much, but I feel the least I can do is put up some Haitian tunes. That’s all that’s going to be posted here for a bit, and if you feel like contributing something, feel free to email me. Also, please show up to Dutty Artz Tropical Relief this Saturday if you happen to be near NYC.
First up we have a Hip-Hop track from a compilation my friend picked up for me when she was in Haiti last summer. I think you might be able to buy this somewhere, and it’s worth hearing. Not much out of the ordinary as far as Haitian Rap goes, which to me sometimes sounds like Southern States Hip-Hop with Kompa influenced beats.
