Biniyam (GER/ETH/FIN)

German-Ethiopian Biniyam is one of the most interesting rappers in the local scene who are rhyming in English. Representing the modern sound of international hip hop with a relentless attitude, this young talent has been on the rise with his debut EP titled 1ne, which raised interest in Finland as well as abroad during the last couple of years. No wonder why. To make things even better, Biniyam just dropped his second EP, The Abyssinian, so you can expect to be enjoying his new material live at the Funky Elephant.
