Sydney-based hip hop artist Sampa The Great has announced a new mixtape and shared the release's soulful second track 'Bye River.'
The 13-track 'BIRDS AND THE BEE9' is out November 10 on Big Dada and also features 'Rhymes To The East,' released earlier this month.
Kwes Darko, Sensible J (REMI) and Alejandro 'JJ' Abapo (Silent Jay) are among the producers that collaborated with Sampa on the tape, which spans spiritually-minded gospel and chants, through neo-soul and hip hop.
