Chief Boima Readies New Album for Dutty Artz

Chief Boima's initial splash on Dutty Artz came in the form of African by the Bay, a 2009 remix EP of mainstream rap tunes, including one from Bay Area heavyweights The Jacka and Andre Nickatina. Since then, he's relocated from Oakland to the Big Apple, and will be unveiling his newest release, fittingly titled African in New York, on February 21. There won't be any remixes of Nas or Jay-Z on his latest effort, but it will feature a refix of Cajmere's classic "Percolator" and a collaboration with NYC tropical-bass mainstay Uproot Andy. Take a look at the artwork and tracklisting below, and head here to check out Chief Boima's rework of "Without Money No Family" by Sierra Leonean blind thumb piano player Sorie Kondi, with whom he will be playing at SXSW.
