Although Americans remain largely focused on our own shores, hip-hop talent is exploding internationally, with thousands of artists across the globe bringing their own local flavor to hip-hop’s always eclectic mix. Case in point: The Canz, a duo consisting of brothers Prominent and Foster who may be living in Georgia now, but whose roots are firmly planted in their native Ghana. That long musical journey from Africa has lead them to our pages for their DJBooth premiere with their new cut Fly Away, a celebratory jam that shines with soulful production from Crackking that’s a guaranteed head-nodder. Add in a quality mix of rap from The Canz and vocal work of RVZ (who sounds a little like John Legend on the chorus), and if you’ve got a track that should make quite the first impression on DJBooth readers. If you’re digging The Canz’ sound be sure to check their upcoming Mick Boogie affiliated mixtape The Slow Rise, due out on October 31.
