Long time hiphop head/soulrap reader/bowling extraordinaire Trev brings this great song from K’naan, a soulrap favorite out of Somalia, Africa.
“Where rocket-propelled grenades are fired around you on a daily … a guy bragging on TV talking about how gangster he is?” K’Naan says. “For us, it’s more a source of entertainment. It’s more like a comedy or something we watch. Say, ‘Oh wow, that’s kind of cute of American gangsters.’ But it isn’t hardcore, it isn’t that bad. Let’s get things in perspective, you know?”
K’naan’s new cd drops the 24th entitled Troubadour. Be absolutely sure not to miss this.
