Dex Kwasi – “Poke Out”

Los Angeles-based rapper Dex Kwasi (from Oklahoma City/Ghana) describes his music as a combination of hip-hop, afrobeat, trap, UK/South African house, and live instrumentation, but “Poke” out is pretty much straight hip-hop with the kind of loop that will have you humming that melody for the rest of the day after one listen. It’s the kind of loop that sounds like it belongs in an early 2000s underground track, but Dex flips it into something a little more fit for a party with some trap hi-hats and potent verses that rely more on style and charisma than content.

Hear more from Dex on Soundcloud, and look out for his confidently titled album, Album of the Year in 2014.
