This man's got my attention. He's got a funky sound that's a good mix between old school, modern sounds, and his rhymes have a danceable flow. It's been a long time since I heard a rap album with this many catchy tracks. I mean catchy in a head bobbing, shake your rump kinda way, not some over-produced, blatant attempt at Top 40 hits. No doubt he'll have a few hits but it's tough to walk that line between hitmaker and sellout. I think K'Naan does it well. I'm not sure what to say about K'Naan except that he caught me by surprise. This man has a LOT of talent and could well be a major force in the future...if not already. You'll note that I didn't even mention the depth of his lyrics, his hard life story in Somalia, and how all of that ties together. Almost every other review will cover that. I'll leave it to them other than to say that he pulls that off well too. Final word - it's a rare album where I'll really like 13 out of 15 tracks. It's all the more rare in hip hop/rap these days. Don't fault me for it. It's a matter of taste. Still, I can safely claim that K'Naan is some of the best music I've heard so far in 2009.

K'naan is a great new artist that just recently released his new album "Troubador." The hype for this album has been building up for a while now. His songs are featured on MTV on like every commercial break. His music is life changing. It has a soothing, calm feeling to it. Some songs make you wanna dance, some songs make you think.
