Who's going to the Baltimore show this Friday at The Quarter?
Tickets are only $10.00.
It's a brand new venue and certainly an evening to remember.

Pumped that K'Naan's "Dreamer" will be the theme song for the upcoming NFL Draft. Two things I love in life: NFL football and all things K'Naan. Next let's see ESPN use "ABCs" for the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Nice work, K'Naan!

I listened to music when I was a kid.
I listened because I danced to it, and I liked to dance.
I listened because I liked to bob my head, and I loved to bob my head.
I listened because I didn't have to listen.
I listened because the people I listened to seemed so different than everybody else, and everybody else liked to listen.
So I listened too.
Then one day I understood what I had been listening to all along. Like a piece of glass that smashed on the face, it… Continue

Hey K'Naan, I dont know if you read the blog posts but I hope you will find this one. I am writing a research paper for my AP History class and I am writing it on the affect of the UN on Somalia and I thought to myself, K'naan is from Somalia and has experienced the harsh problems that have occurred there. So I was just wondering if you could give me some helpful insight on your thoughts.
PS. I couldnt find how to send this as a letter so I sent it as a blog...

Will K'NAAN be playing in NYC anytime soon? I missed the event at S.O.B.'s.

The NFL has chosen K'naan's "Dreamer" to be its official theme song for 2009! How dope is that? He sent a coupla tweets saying he's been on a crazy video shoot in all the iconic spots in NYC. Here's a sneak peek of the footage. He also said he'll let us know when it will be airing, which I'm guessing will be during the draft in April. And finally, here's a link
to some still… Continue

K'NAAN had an incredible showing last week at SXSW in an afternoon showcase put on by NPR. The hosts were talking about how he had brought tears to people's eyes, and how he made tons of fans in the audience, "no matter what newspaper they read." It was incredible. Check out these videos:… Continue

Those of you that live in the Miami area or the lucky ones that might be in town (after all the Winter Music Conference is this weekend) have a chance to see K'naan at the Sunset Soiree. Presented by Giant Step, you know this event is going to be FIRE. Since I can't make it (I was so close), please attend for me and don't forget to blog about it!…

They talked about all sorts of things including: energy efficient cars, flying on Air Force 1, AIG, bowling, and the new puppy. I loved the part about electric cars and being able to sell the energy back into the grid as well as using wind power. I know it's a long clip, but I promise it's funny and entertaining. Check out the video below or on… Continue

I just wanted to post this review from K'naan's performance at the Kennedy Center, as well as a link to the entire show! Enjoy!! If the link to the performance doesn't work, just type "K'naan" in the search bar, and it'll take you there.

This might not be the most exciting post in the world, but yesterday as I was driving home from work, I was listening to Columbus's only hip-hop/R&B station, Power 107.5. The DJ, Nia Noelle, tends to play other stuff than the same five songs over and over. I really like her. Anyway, she cut to the traffic/news report, which is always accompanied by a hip-hop instrumental, and low and behold, the track was "ABCs"! I was so excited, I called her! She said she uses that track a lot, and she… Continue

Music Review: K'Naan - Troubadour
Written by Jordan Richardson
Published March 17, 2009
Real artists produce creatively because they must. There is no question of whether or not to express oneself, no considerable weighing of the options, and no deciding. Artists have stories, ideas, thoughts, dreams, and nightmares that must be released. In the case of K’naan, born in Somalia during one of the most… Continue
