The NYC-2-Africa EP was recorded in New York City, Kingston and Dakar using a single original rhythm to trace the diaspora back through history, from hip-hop’s inception on NYC’s gritty streets, to its Jamaican dancehall reggae roots, to its foundation in African rhythms—represented here by a battery of Senegalese sabar drums. The politics, culture, and environmental awareness fundamental to this musical history are represented vocally by Anthony B (Jamaica), Jahdan Blakkamoore (NYC) and Bajah (Sierra Leone), the three artists featured on the track. For an exclusive look inside the studio during recording, check out the video above.
