I’ve been an avid K’Naan fan for years now ever since I heard him spit on BBC 1xtra (DNA with DJ Edu). If anyone knows me, you will know one of my biggest anthems of the century or decade is K’Naans ABC. I don’t know how many of you listen to lyrics but truth be told if you listen to the lyrics of ABC you will realize the little sucker is some what of a genius with his rhymes.
Anyway the reason I mention K’Naan is because he is some what of a conscious rapper as far as am concerned. Since his inception he has been firm in talking about the civil war in Somali, refugees, failed missions by the UN and a list of other socially inspired content. When I look at the budding career of Emmanuel Jal (and I know this is a K-Force song) but am more inspired by Emmanuel Jal in that he is from Sudan on a similar K’Naan Mission. Emmanuel was a child soldier in Sudan and Ethiopia and currently is dedicating his life to saving/helping the suffering people of Sudan. He has a documentary and an album currently out talking about his life as a War child.
K-FORCE on the other hand is a groups with slightly similar struggles but not the same. K-FORCE is a hip-hop movement based in Nairobi Kenya, born in the heart of the biggest slums in the region – KIBERA. The group which mainly comprises 3 individuals collaborated with Nyaruach and Emmanuel to put this banger together.
I honestly haven’t heard a song that I can say “this song is FIYAAAH” in a long time. It appears as though many of the big artists are on a chill pill leaving a gap that many aspiring artists are taking lately. The number of emerging artists is increasing incredibly and I wouldn’t be surprised if in a few months/years we don’t mention Namless, Nonini or JuaCali (am not saying it will happen but I wouldn’t be surprised lol).
Either way give this a spin – You can join the K-Force Group no Facebook here: K-FORCE ON FAEBOOK
