Man We Love: Spoek Mathambo

Written By: MIM!Part "prince of township tech", part "suburban space invader", MC Spoek Mathambo merges electronica with hip hop to bring to light South Africa's past through his music. Take a look at his video for the song Mshnini Wam; the song is a story of a young revolutionary who becomes a corrupt fatcat after "the big victory" and was fittingly shot in inner-city Johannesburg.
