Seun Kuti x M1 Of Dead Prez 'IMF'

Watch a lyric video for Seun Kuti's "IMF" featuring M1 of Dead Prez.


Never one to shy away from political directness, Seun Kuti takes an explicit jab at the International Monetary Fund's intervention on Nigerian economic and oil policies in "IMF (International Mother Fucker)." The fiery, horn-flanked afrobeat track sees Seun calling out a laundry list of points against the IMF's presence in Nigeria and features a verse from Dead Prez' M1.

As Seun told The Guardian last year, "the IMF and international policy cannot work in Africa because they do not take the common man into consideration. Now that you can only afford half the fuel you could before, where do you think the rest of the fuel will go? It's going to the west, where the price of fuel has been skyrocketing." Watch the lyric video for "IMF" below, the single will feature in Seun Kuti's upcoming album A Long Way To The Beginning, due Feb 24.
