Seun Kuti & Black Thought – African Dreams (EP Stream)

ICYMI – Grammy-nominated musical/socio-political powerhouse, Seun Kuti presents a riveting new release. Revisiting his Grammy-nominated 2018 album, Black Times, Kuti enlists The Roots frontman and highly esteemed emcee Black Thought to deliver African Dreams,a three-track EP, reimagining the tracks to form a perfect hybrid of Afrobeat and Hip-Hop. In his trademark lyrical style Black Thought delivers verses of spirited self-affirmation, while Seun Kuti reinforces messages of freedom while electric piano and horns interweave over swinging bass, giving a feeling that is undoubtedly Afrobeat.

STREAM: “African Dreams” + “Bad Man Lighter”


“hard-hitting blends of hip hop and Afrobeat, with vocals alternating between Black Thought’s fiery rapping and Kuti’s deep, slightly gravelly singing and lyrics of struggle, resilience and hope.”

” a towering collection of contemporary Afrobeat that carried forth his father’s legacy without resorting to pastiche.”

“seamlessly fuses jazzy afrobeat and nostalgic hip-hop production creating a unique musical sound.” 

“a perfect marriage between Afrobeat and American hip hop genres, this is a melodic sound that is full of interesting sonic textures and impactful lyricism.”
