Royce Da 5’9 samples Ayub Ogada’s “Koth Biro” in new single feat. T.I, Sy Ari Da Kid, CyHi The Prynce & White Gold. Watch “Black Savage” video

“Black Savage” is the latest single by Detroit lyricist Royce Da 5’9″. Featuring Sy Ari Da Kid, T.I, CyHi The Prynce and White Gold, the song marks Royce’s debut as a beat maker/producer/arranger. Interestingly, the late Kenyan nyatiti maestro Ayub Ogada‘s classic hit “Koth Biro” is heavily used as a sample, with its spellbinding ‘hah haye aye‘ refrain chorally looped throughout the track.

“Black Savage” is one of the tracks picked as part of Jay-Z and NFL’s ‘Inspire Change Initiative’ .
