At a staff party for an international NGO the other night, they hired a team of local rappers, including 13-year-old Lil'-D, representing Old Road, Monrovia.
Liberia Ledger is proud to give you Lil'-D's world internet premiere (we think), with the track "Ehn U C It"*. As the CD-R cover declares in ball-point pen, "This track is so hot." The song discusses such contemporary Liberian problems as having a 35-year-old student in the 8th grade, teachers demanding money for good grades, and getting jacked for your phone while you wait all day for a taxi.
Lil'-D keeps it real; at one point in the party, his mom called to tell him to come home. If you need to get ahold of him, maybe give him a record contract, Lil' D's cell number is +231 (0)6 519 762.
*in US English, 'ehn you see it' translates to something like "Know what I mean?"
