Premiere: Akinyemi – Dust Calling


'Akinyemi' translates as "fated to be a warrior" in Yoruba, but the fiercely independent up-and-coming Nigerian MC from Queens Village, NY prefers a sound less confrontational than his name suggests, joining the dots between golden age boom bap and contemporary acts such as Mick Jenkins and The Underachievers. His lyrics, on the other hand, are as incisive as a freshly sharpened sword.

With his debut EP, summers, out next Friday, Akinyemi has just unleashed lead track 'Dust Calling'. Consider this your introduction to a very talented new artist. Listen here:
