Listen to Falz' New Fela Kuti-Sampling Album 'Moral Instruction'

The Nigerian rapper's new album is here.

Falz has just dropped his brand new album, Moral Instruction.

As the title implies, the new record follows the rapper as he tackles several topics dealing with Nigeria's social ills and issues with political & social awareness throughout its nine tracks.

The album notably samples Fela Kuti, who was undoubtedly outspoken about similar issues himself, in some of its standout songs.

"Johnny" flips Fela's "J.J.D. (Johnny Just Drop)," "Follow Follow" samples the afrobeat king's scathing attack on the Nigerian military "Zombie," "Amen" features elements from the hit "Coffin For Head of State" and "E No Finish" interpolates "Army Arrangement."

Additionally, the cover art for Moral Instruction was crafted by Nigerian artist and longtime Fela collaborator Lemi Ghariokwu—the man behind many of Fela Kuti's iconic covers.


Falz had just recently dropped the music video for the album's single, "Talk," which deals issues like greedy politicians, an ineffective president, and Nigerian's penchant for conspicuous consumption.
