Ghana via UK MC Kobi Onyame took our Artist of the Week poll by a substantial margin. Looks like his fresh take on conscious hip-hop found its mark. Congratulations, Kobi!

The unsigned rapper debuted with the eclectic album Green Green Grasses last year. The self-released album, which features Emeli Sande and Sway, rose to 29 on the iTunes hip-hop chart. Not bad for an indie.

Read more about our reigning artiste here, and our Q&A with him. Marvel at his gifts in this mini-movie for his song “Heartbeat.”
