Future Classic: Ka “Off The Record”

I’m not sure I really got lyrics at first. When I started listening to hip hop, it was always the beat that caught my ear. The rapper, rhythmic and percussive, added something but never took centre stage. My moment of clarity...

Future Classic: Ian Kamau “One Day Soon”
