A candid conversation with the Brooklyn based artist, KAMAUU, during his first trip to Kenya.

on November 28, 2016 - 9:00am

It’s a duet with smooth-voiced Brooklyn singer Talibah Safiya.

New York-based rapper and singer KAMAU's music has an eccentric edge. He flirts with concepts that most would stray away from in music, like gibberish. The DC-born artist has previously worked with the likes of Lion Babe, and had his music featured on comedian Issa Rae's new HBO series, Insecure. Today, KAMAU is dropping a calming, soulful new song, "MINT," which includes the smooth singing of Brooklyn vocalist Talibah Safiya. The song is produced by Dave Monks of Tokyo Police Club and features KAMAU and Safiya singing about the
