Somalia native K'Naan is all about delivering politically charged lyrics with knifelike precision. He expressed disappointment in the poppy direction of his last LP, 2012's Country, God or the Girl, so expect to hear new material that gets back to his old ways—namely dense, heady rhymes over Afro-hip-hop beats.
