5 new Belgian hip-hop bangers to start the weekend: MVNSI, Yung Mavu & more
Every week we make a selection of Belgian hip-hop bangers that somehow caught our attention. Keep sending us new tracks or EP releases via firstname.lastname@example.org, and maybe your name will be on the list next Friday. The news just hit our mailbox that Woodie Smalls is coming through with a new album on March 20th, and to get in the mood we have some other new Belgian hip-hop bangers for y'all. Let's go!

MVNSI - SQUAD
MVNSI is back with a new music video and track to start off a new year in his career. And what a track! The beat is dark and the lyrics are catchy enough to sing along after the second listen and a music video that screams drillers. We knew this guy was on his way to make it to the top, but we did not expect this.
YUNG MAVU FT. CHUKI BEATS - J. LO
Remember the holy combination of Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta in Pulp Fiction? Mavu and Chuki are the exact same type of golden combo: made for each other. And then there's Yunobi, who turns this bromance in the manly Destiny's Child. Should we say anything more about this track? Don't think so.
MEYY - SUN
We're not going to lie, after her last song our whole team has been patiently waiting for more. MEYY's vibe is like an addiction, and we obviously can't get enough of it. If only the weather would turn out sunnier so that we could vibe to these songs as supposed to, that would be great.
DARRELL COLE - MAD LIVIN'
Yeah, after watching this music video we are for real ready for summer vibes. Darrell, one of the kings of Antwerp, is big enough in the Belgian hip-hop scene to not have to introduce him anymore. We love how he subtitled this music video in French, trying to get to the other side of our small ass country.
LARBII - NO SHIT
Larbii was unknown to us, and maybe to you too. The guy is from Limburg and we do not often get mails from Limburg-based rappers in our inbox. Thank god we did this time because we like this! Lyrically, some could learn from this upcoming rapper.

Ik ga vrijwilligerswerk doen in Afrika en ik neem mee: mijn smartphone en mijn selfiestick.Elk jaar reizen er tienduizenden vrijwilligers af naar Afrika. Ze helpen er in weeshuizen, bouwen mee een school op of geven Engelse les. Deze bezoeken kunnen goed bedoeld zijn, maar de lokale bevolking help je er niet altijd mee vooruit. Daarbovenop kunnen je altruïstische motieven ook in vraag worden gesteld wanneer je op sociale media te veel foto’s post van dit vrijwilligerswerk.
