HEAR THIS: Kabaka Pyramid “Well Done”

Accurate! Real talk from the minister of argument and reasoning, honorable Kabaka Pyramid. “Music is the Weapon of the Future,” Fela Kuti once declared, and he used his power as an artist to bring about political change. Kabaka Pyramid follows in that proud tradition with his latest song, the sarcastically titled “Well Done,” which was produced by Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley.
