wale and k'naan: the um rickan dream

wale's new mixtape 'back to the feature' was all over the interwebs this weekend. one track jumped off that album and smacked me upside the head: his collaboration with k'naan on 'Um Ricka'.

the track features amadou and miriam and samples fela kuti, and the lyrical flow from both artists is tight and flawless.

hiphop griots spinning yarns of the african experience in the west.
