Premiere: Blink's 'American Dreams, African Principles' LP


Naija via Chicago's Blink spits with the ease and confidence often related to Chi-town flows whilst constantly big upping his Nigerian origins. American Dreams, African Principles bridges the gap between the states and the continent, with Blink delivering global rhymes that span both US hustle and Naija issues. As dude states, "international style but I'm African, man!"

You've already heard "World Wide Flow" and the Weezy-referencing "Animal," now stream and download ADAP in its entirety below! Other standouts include the dubby "Spark It Up" and the twinkle beat of "Ice Cold."
