Trackstar put me onto “Walkin’” a collaboration from J.Period and Nigerian born Nneka. The track recalls Native Tongues tribal production styles, but with an upgraded 21st century bass drum added to the proceedings. The verbal singing/scattin’ of Nneka gives the track an African authenticity, while Jay Electronica injects some Americanism into the proceedings with a dope guest verse of subtle self-promotion.
Snag the whole J.Period & Nneka Present The Madness project over @ www.JPeriod.com. Nneka’s Concrete Jungle hits stores stores February 2, 2010 on Yo Mama/Decon/Epic.
