7 new Belgian hip-hop tracks to start the weekend: Blu Samu, Bryan Mg & more
Every week, we select five new 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. It has been two weeks since the last Belgian hip-hop article as we announced our nominees for the Red Bull Elektropedia Awards last Friday. But here we are again, straight outta snooze mode with new bangers for the weekend. Let's go!

BRYAN MG FT FRENNA - MY BEBE
Ghent-based rapper Bryan MG is going international with his new track 'My Bébé'. Together with Dutch rapper Frenna, he made this catchy hit which has been stuck in our head since it came out. He also sneak-peeked that he might be featured on 101Barz real soon. Big man things!
BLU SAMU - GFM
Brussels-based Blu Samu, who won our Red Bull Elektropedia Chase award last year, dropped the first music video of her upcoming album which releases next week. The aesthetically pleasing video perfectly matches the track, and we can’t get over how heavy she is grinding!
LOSABES - SERVICE
LoSabeS is a rather unknown name in the scene. One of his first solo singles released last week, on which he raps with a very raw Flemish accent. He already made two other songs in the past 5 years, but it has been quiet for a while and we're glad he's on a roll again. Belgian hip-hop worth discovering!
ZIO IO - KETTING
Zio Io is the new alter ego of rapper Ikke, who is known for being part of 'Onze Zaak' collective from Genk. He, Chaz & Djalu are also part of 'Goeie Jongens', another hip-hop collective from the east of the country. With 'Ketting' he dropped his second solo track, sharing knowledge on heavily melodic beats. Zio Io as we know him.
VINCI FT JAY MNG - 15K
Leuven based rapper Vinci released his first EP 'Baksteen' and now dropped the music video for '15K'. Next to Vinci, we hear Jay MNG, who was a finalist of De Nieuwe Lichting in 2017. With '15K', Vinci proved yet again that he is ready to become one of Belgians big rappers.
CEDJE - FENOMEEN
Cedje has been on this list once, and he deserved this second mention. The trapper from Mechelen dropped the music video for 'Fenomeen', another new single after the release of his album a few weeks back. The guy seems unstoppable, and we are curious how he’ll end 2019!
ZWANGERE GUY - NIEMAND
No introduction needed. Brussels artist Zwangere Guy blessed the whole country with the announcement of his new album 'Brutaal'. And while we wait until December 6, he already gave us a new music video for the track 'Niemand'. We’ll be right back, after repeating this song for the upcoming 24 hours.
