Kick, Push – Lupe Fiasco

I’m growing a moustache to raise money for the Movember Foundation. So this month I will be honouring some of the best moustaches in music. You can donate to my mo here:

Not Lupe’s most famous, but my favourite. Kick, Push is a lovable little rap track about finding love on a skateboard. “Just a rebel looking for a place to be.” Aren’t we all Lupe. Aren’t we all.

The album is Food & Liquor, check it out if you like what you hear.

Wayne Snow

Every Sunday I bring you something a little more downtempo to ease you back into the world.

Today, the smooth tones of Wayne Snow. Wayne (real name Kesiena Ukochovbara) was born in Nigeria and moved to Berlin to launch his music career. He picked up the name ‘Snow’ as a play on his blackness. He released his first EP Red Runner in 2014 on Tartelet Records, produced by Max Graef. In his music you hear the confluence of German and Afro sounds. It’s good.

One from his new(ish) album, Freedom TV.

Wayne featured on Max Graef’s Running.

And my favourite, Rosie.
