X-Plastaz are probably the best-known name on the Tanzanian hip-hop scene, and occasional visitors to Europe. The group consists of 3 grown-up MCs, two young rappers and a Maasai singer. X-Plastaz show that the rural culture of the Maasai people can be meaningful on a far wider level.

Their debut, self-recorded album "Maasai Hip-Hop" was released in August 2004 in Germany.
