Fresh off soundtracking a commercial for the NFL Draft, K’naan has released a video for another single from Troubador, this one for “T.I.A. (This is Africa).” The song finds K’naan calling out rappers for claiming that living in the Bronx is like living in a war zone when living in parts of Africa means living in a real war zone, and presenting Africa as a vibrant place with more than its fair share of problems. The video is vaguely M.I.A.-esque, with its collision of colors, images, and slogans, but then again, Maya doesn’t hold a monopoly on this kind of clip.
Troubador is out now. [Culture Bully]
