Old Money – “Swahili and Dough”

old-money-fire-in-the-dark

It’s crazy to think that Old Money will be releasing their debut mixtape soon; I’ve been fans of this NY duo for five years now, and have seen them incorporate dance elements into the music as they’ve grown. Their debut, Fire In The Dark, is set to be released on May 28, and if “Swahili and Dough” is any indicator, they’ve found a perfect pocket for their dance beats and fly rhymes. You have to love how tribal this beat (which was originally Lamin Fofana’s “Brokedown City”) gets, building on UK Funky into the sounds of kwaito.
