Akua Naru is back on the block. And in this “live & aflame” session backed the DigFlo band and singer Drea D’Nur, Akua shows the world why she is an okayplayer-to-watch, commanding the mic and weaving complex counterpoints to the live ensemble into the cadence of her rhyme like a Grammy-winning industry vet, rather than a fresh face in this whole live hip-hop movement. Watch for the sax solo and make sure you stick with this song right through to goose-bumpy conclusion at the 7 minute, 26 second mark. You’ll be glad you did. Also, did I forget to mention: World Premiere!
