Albanians took to hip hop early -- by the mid-1990s, the scene was established, and it shows no sign of petering out. Albanian here refers to the language -- the performers could well come from Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro, or from Albanian-speaking expat communities in Europe or the U.S.
I found this album in a small town on the road to Prizren. "Shqip" is the Albanian word for Albanian, and the double-headed eagle appears on the Albanian flag. Here's the album, encoded into .mp3 format.*Enjoy!**
