Fire in Freetown by K’Naan : “Like fire in Freetown, I’m fueled by your gold mine*“
Simple melodies, easy beats and beautiful lyrics. K’Naan is one of our generation’s greats. His rhymes are simple yet oh so complex. They convey the struggle of living in Somalia during the conflict while simultaneously showing the strong, beautiful spirit of Somalis, and issues surrounding humans in general. If you enjoy this, be sure to listen to Fatima, and In the Beginning.
* mine sounds like mind for a little play on words
