Audio: Nneka x Black Thought “God Knows Why” + “Sleep” ft. Ms. Dynamite

Our brothers and sisters (mostly brothers) at Okayplayer posted these two new cuts from Nigerian-German soultress Nneka, featuring Black Thought (!) and North London's Ms. Dynamite. From Eddie "STATS" pen:

The new Nneka album we’ve been waiting for ever since she premiered “Soul is Heavy” is dropping imminently (Today in Europe and tomorrow stateside) and in case you forgot to be amped about it we have two more leaks to recharge the energy. The first–and most firmly in our OKP wheelhouse–is the slow but steady juggernaut “God Knows Why” featuring none other than Black Thought. Also not to be slept on, though, is the dreamier–but still tough–”Sleep” featuring Ms. Dynamite.

Stream both tracks below and grab Soul Is Heavy now.
