TOURS THE U.S. WITH STEPHEN MARLEY, DAMIAN MARLEY

knaan-sexygirls-rihanna-steven-marley.jpgSomali-born MC and singer K'naan has joined Stephen Marley on his Mind Control North America Tour. The two will be joined by Jr. Gong himself, Damian Marley. K'naan will be performing in support of his upcoming debut album, The Dusty Foot Philosopher, a collection of hip-hop beats with reggae influences and African percussion. The Dusty Foot Philosopher will be released later this year and features tracks with Damian "Jr Gong" Marley and Mos Def as well as production by Track and Field (Nelly Furtado), Minnesota, Preservation.

K'naan "the traveler" fled Somalia as a refugee at 14 to escape civil war, making his new home in Toronto. But he hasn't forgotten his roots: his lyrics reflect his political and social stance against violence and his debut music video, Soobax is the first North American produced hip-hop video shot on African soil. K'naan adds the Marley brothers to an already impressive list of former tour and recording collaborators who celebrate the relevance of his political poetry, live performance and purpose driven mission, including Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Dead Prez, Digable Planets, Pharoah Monch, The Roots, and more.
