K’naan — The Dusty Foot Philosopher

I don’t know if I have heard of K’naan a while back but after expe­ri­enc­ing a glimpse of ABC’s fea­tur­ing Chubb Rock dur­ing an ABDC break I was hooked. I don’t want to spend too much time talk­ing about the expe­ri­ence, as its best to leave you to have a go at it.

I’d say to quickly cop his lat­est album, Trou­ba­dour, and have a lis­ten. It’s guar­an­teed not to dis­ap­point your ears, your mind and your heart.

But if you’d like to hear a bit of what the man is all about, here’s a 120-second short of K’naan through the Friends We Love documentary.

Somali MC & musi­cian K’naan shares his views on lan­guage as not only a tool for com­mu­ni­ca­tion but also as a cul­tural car­rier and its influ­ence in the way we view our­selves and our sur­round­ing environment.

Mean­while, here are some of the songs I’m dig­ging from his lat­est album:

Last but not least, here’s one that shows his prowess to share his expe­ri­ence with the World, Kicked & Pushed.

I hope you learn some­thing, and if you’d like to know more, you may fol­low him on Twit­ter @thedustyfoot.

PS. Cop his lat­est album Trou­ba­dour via Amazon.com.
