AziBambo Hip Hop group has announced the release date for 'Archives' album falls on 31 January, 2023.
'Archives' is AZibambo's debut album since the group was formed in 2012.
The album also follows the release of three lead singles titled 'They Don't Wanna Stay', '20 Forever' featuring the legendary Hip Hop group, The Nameless and 'Money'.
"The first two tracks were about introducing ourselves and declaring our space in Hip Hop industry. Our new track 'Money' tackles issues everyone can resonate with. We are talking about money because we all need money for our daily survival.
"The song has been receiving an overwhelming response and it's safe to say 'Money' is our final nail on the coffin until the album drops," said Rappa Young O, member of AZibambo.
All the songs have been done in Chichewa on hardcore Hip Hop beats produced by Strxxt Knawledge and Sage Poet while recording and mixing was done by Nefter.
The album, which is now done, features 13 tracks including an Intro.
AziBambo Rap/Hip Hop group comprises Blaq Gestapol, Rappa Young O and Nematrix.
Commenting on the group name, another member, Nematrix says, "AziBambo in English its fathers. We are fathers in Hip Hop and even on personal individual level.
"Our role is to provide parenting to Hip Hop artists in Malawi as custodians of the genre."
In his remarks, third member, Blaq Gestapol says, "AziBambo is here to stay. People can tell from how we have planned our comeback. We have been working hard releasing single after single and now the album is done."
The group started when Rappa Young O featured the three members in his 2012 album 'Street Poet' in a song called 'Hip Hop Renovation'.
