One of the best (and most overlooked) things to happen to hip-hop this decade is its cultural expansion onto international soil, most notably in Canada, the UK, New Zealand, and Sweden. Hailing from the Swedish capital city of Stockholm (close to previously-featured Booth favorite, Adam Tensta), Henok Achido has lit a fire under his cliché-titled new single, Fly Fresh. With the energy to power an Ikea plant and enough substance to make an entire batch of Swedish meatballs, Achido utilizes producer Filthy‘s synth-heavy production, in the hope of making Fly Fresh a crossover hit. Achido’s new album, Almaz Charming Child, is scheduled for an international release next year.
