Colby’s pick: Adam Tensta – “Bangin on the System” January 30, 2008

In the spirit on shedding light on some of the more slept-on acts of the hip-hop world, BOJ traveled all the way to Sweden (not really) to bring you something special that may sound familiar to Texas heads. That screwed up hook we’re used to has made its way to Stockholm and to the studio of Adam Tensta, who raps in English but has his MySpace page in Swedish (don’t ask me). “Bangin on the System,” the first single from his album released last November It’s a Tensta Thing, has a street vibe that hits home in the States, even if we don’t realize Tensta is a Swedish project filled with immigrants (had to do some research for that nugget). As for the rest of the album, it may not be as recognizable for Yanks as the lead single (case in point”My Cool”), but is still a solid listen for those looking to expand their Hip-Hop horizons beyond the pond.
