I could note how long I slept on K’Naan (||), his album Troubadour and the rest of his deep catalog. Then, I could speak on how he pretty much stole the entire show when I saw him at Rock The Bells as an opening act, amidst half of my favorite rappers. Following up by harping on how excited I got upon reading the details to the Somalian-turnt-Canuck’s new digital EP, The Messangers, and finding out he was not only doing an ode to one Bob, but another as well.
Or, I could just cut the bullshit and say, here’s one extremely talented musician doing tributes to a few others.
That sounds better.
