Gummy Soul artist Amerigo Gazaway put together two towering greats in this 8-track, 33 minute, blend of afrobeat rhythms and hip-hop gems. The Nashville-based producer handpicked dozens of samples from Fela Kuti's illustrious catalog and combined them with 8 acapellas that span over a decade of De La Soul classics.

Watch a found-footage preview clip for Fela Soul above, stream and download the album in its entirety below. Redman, MF Doom, and Gorillaz also made the cut. Pretty dope hearing the L.I. trio's raps over Fela's sax and Tony Allen beats. For more head over to Gummy Soul.
