Though Do for You rhymesayer DanO currently resides in the Garden State, the emcee came up in Lagos, the most populous city in Nigeria. On new mixtape single Sounds of the Motherland, the rhymesayer returns to his roots, representing for the nation that birthed him over production inspired by one of his most famous countrymen. Backed by Flawless Tracks’ raucous brass/vocal samples, borrowed from a cut by Afrobeat pioneer and political activist Fela Kuti, DanO mixes braggadocious one-liners with lyrical nods to Nigeria’s culture and history. Has this musical journey across the Atlantic left you craving more fresh tunes? If so, you can keep it locked to our pages for further singles and release details leading up the the yet-unscheduled arrival of DanO’s next street album, Verses & Hooks Vol. 2.
