Audio: Natty 'Afrika'


Part-Lesotho, part-Italian dread donning reggae singer Natty is pretty much the ideal incarnation of a OkayafricaLargeUp offspring. "Afrika," a new joint from his upcoming Out of Fire mixtape, marries dub roots with (his current-hood) North London's dark electronic textures. Like the song title suggests, Natty's words circle around a desire for a physical/mental return to the continent. Stream and download "Afrika" below, plus read LargeUp 's past interview with Natty.
