Baloji is one of Belgium’s most important rappers. He goes his own way, rather than blindly following trend. And that takes him to the crossing of rap, funk, electronic and the rumba Lingala, the soukous music of the Democratic Republic of Congo. This is where Baloji was born, and this is where his fast, new songs with their mixture of rock-rumba and futurist funk lead his audiences.
