On Sunday’s show, he features Show Dem Camp, Falana and Bez

While Show Dem Camp’s influences nod to the lyrical prowess of NaS and rhythmic flow of Fela Kuti, it’s the prominence of their narrative- the story of two young men who aren’t willing to compromise their truth for the sake of artificial cool points
