After a series of promising mix-tapes and features on other notable albums Ian Kamau dropped a master piece debut album. I really can't give it enough praise. It might be easiest to classify the music as hip hop, but the songs on the 'One Day Soon' album eschews much of what has become standard in hip hop.

I do wish there was more artists making music at this level. The lyrics are poetry of the highest degree, fiercely honest, open-hearted and thoughtfully crafted with healthy doses of love and compassion.

Check out the full album here. It really is a work that deserves to be heard in full. You might also want to check out the video on the Beautiful City post which contains a great live performance by Kamau.
