K'naan's new joint

I met K'naan and his manager Sol at the UN-Habitat Hip Hop Summit in South Africa. Good guys doing good work. Check their new joint, out today. I'm listening to it on Lala, but pick it up anywhere you can. This is a great example, imho, of how to do hip hop in your own way, bringing in influences from different places, but maintaining quality. All too often, heads doing hip hop in different places bring in funky stuff, but lose the quality. Keep the quality, bring the tight rhymes, the dope beats, and people will pay you to keep performing and recording.

Knaan's record is pretty fresh, and that LaLa player is nice too.

Check out our remix of Knaan's "ABCs" -->
