About a month ago, a friend of mine contacted me via twitter to tell me about an artist from Washington, D.C. known as Maimouna Youssef. Normally when people tweet or retweet music on my timeline I brush it off and keep it moving (I've had many bad experiences checking out random demos that were sub-par). In this particular instance I decided to follow the link since my man generally shares the same affinity for authentic Hip Hop music.
