Few individuals have contributed to the rise of a new generation of Rwandan rap music artists as much as Ish Kevin has. After pioneering the scene with his Trappish Music label, the rapper continues to assert himself as a leading force in a rapidly evolving urban culture. Say what you may, but Ish Kevin deserves a listen at least from time to time.

This week, we invite you to listen to his latest offering: a ten-track album entitled "BST" (meaning, perhaps, "Blood, Sweat, and Tears").

You can find it on Apple Music and Spotify.
