Video: K’NAAN – Somalia

Off Troubador, due out January 13.

And because somebody is gonna ask:

WHO IS K’NAAN?

Somalia.

The name alone conjures up images of unbridled destruction, merciless warlords and ruthless terror. A place where nobody–children, the elderly, religious figures–is safe from the atrocities of war, and where the idea of “childhood,” where 8-year olds handle AK-47s like toys, exists in chronological terms alone. When Forbes magazine recently unveiled their “Most Dangerous Destinations,” Somalia, above Iraq and Afghanistan, topped the list. But it’s also “The Nation of Poets,” where a poem can both inspire peace and end wars. Where every weekend, regardless of the climate, one can find a play or concert at a local theatre.

Growing up, it was both of these Somalias that informed musician/emcee K’NAAN Warsame, whose sophomore album Troubadour will be released in January 2009. The grandson of Haji Mohamed, one of Somalia’s most famous poets, and nephew of famed Somali singer Magool, the emcee is creating his own musical path through reggae, funk, pop, soul and, above all, hip-hop. Recorded primarily in Kingston, Jamaica where K’NAAN was granted unprecedented access by his friends Stephen and Damian Marley to their father Bob Marley’s original home studio at 56 Hope Road and the legendary Tuff Gong studios Troubadour is a hip-hop album like no other. K’NAAN successfully blends samples and live instrumentation for a sound that’s both rooted in traditional African melodies and the classic hip-hop tradition.

    Wow @ that Jim interview.

    That nigga is a sleaze bag. Max sold you his publishing for his FREEDOM from the system. How can you hold that against him? How could ANY Black man do that to another that’s supposed to be cut from the same cloth?

    I never liked dude, but his grimeyness has exceeded an all-time low. Of course, smh @ Flex:

    Jim: *rant* *rave* *blah blah blah*

    Flex: Oh my God!

    Jim: *tangents*

    Flex: Oh my God!

    Jim: *frustration* *complaining* *babbling*

    Flex: OH MY GOD!

    anyone who thinks ghost is the goat needs hiphop 101, who ever thinks lord finesse is crazy with the punchlines obviously never heard a redman or big L album. Even banks is cementing his name with the goats

    ^^

    Yo, ATCQ is the dumbest smart cat with a keyboard.

    No disrespect.

    And saying someone else needs hiphop101, then in the same breath denying Finesse’s punchline prowess is ridiculous, stupid, asinine, etc.

    No disrespect.

    =============================

    Im not dissing finesse, im just saying if i had to choose between red and finesse i’d choose red more times than not. I dont agree with the whole “the guy who invented the style is the best”

    Okay, overstood lol

    But there will always be a reason to say
    Kane > Jay

    G Rap > Pun

    Even if its hard to grasp the concept of it being the truth

  16. D. Billz Says:

    Speakin’ of style, Lupe gave B.I.G. a run for his money on that De La “Ooh” sample.

    I was blastin’ it last spring in my old whip near campus and rap nerds were rollin’ up askin’ who it was.

  17. D. Billz Says:

    Thank goodness for stans.

    The Lupe song I’m referring to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVXJ70jtKKE

    Tell me that’s not Chris Wallace.

  18. pockets Says:

    ^ I swear… dude musta sat next to the tape deck and rewinded them shits over and over. When I first heard it in the homie’s crib, we were talkin’ about J*DaVey and what not (they came out around the same time as Lupe). That “Ooh” freestyle started playin’ on his laptop. I had the “oh shit” expression on my face.

    ^lol… yeah, they’re a pop group. Brook = the dude; producer. Jack = the chick; performer. I used to have a jones for shorty. But she’s crazy. Los Angeles crazy.

    Madd people are running around with their style too. And it’s fucked up because the label won’t push ’em. But right now would be the perfect time. They have the MIA/Santogold/Gwen sound. Label fail.
