We’ve covered K’Naan since 2005, and I’m glad to see that not only has he grown into a capable MC, but his buzz has cemented top artist in 2009. Hot off the heels of his album Troubadour, the Somali/Canadian MC teams up with producer J Period to drop The Messengers, a concept album that pays tribute to “The Messengers” in music, starting with Femi Kuti, Bob Marley, and Bob Dylan. The full Messengers release will drop on September 22nd.
I’m loving the concept of this project, and I wish these two well.
