Rakaa-‘Crown Of Thorns’ guests:Aloe Blacc,KRS One, The Alchemist and more
Rakaa, one third of world-renowned hip hop crew Dilated Peoples, releases ‘Crown Of Thorns’, his debut solo album after four albums with his group and numerous guest spots.
· ‘Crown Of Thorns’ is the sonic prism that has absorbed the myriad cultures taken in by the travelling emcee and reflected them back in the form of a groundbreaking debut.
· It’s not an overstatement to say that Rakaa’s whole life has, consciously or not, gone into the production of this album: “This record is my opportunity to give context so people understand more what I’m trying to do” says the emcee.
· Rakaa will be touring extensively throughout Europe in 2010 (dates TBC).
