The messengers is a 3 part mixtape series where each tape pays tribute to a different artist. The artists are Fela Kuti, Bob Dylan, and Bob Marley. J. Period mixes these artists’ songs and often reshapes them into a form that K’naan can flow over. The result is a nice crossover between genres and some good “chill” music.
Check out the 3 song Digital EP for a few highlights
1) Let’s Start (Fela Kuti Tribute)
2) Belly Full (Bob Marley Tribute) feat. Kardinal Offishall, Steele & Bajah
