MP3: Shafiq En’ A-Free-Ka (Free album at Amazonmp3.com)
While doing some intense MP3 shopping last night, I stumbled upon the fact that Amazon MP3 is currently offering Shafiq Husayn’s 2009 release, Shafiq En’ A-Free-Ka, for free download. Husayn is a member of the futuristic soul collective Sa-Ra Creative Partners, whose releases have been semi appealing to me but never really connected. However, Husayn’s explosion of soul of every genre and dimension (and beyond!) really hit home. Fans of Sa-Ra, Erykah Badu, and other forms of tripped-out R&B should love this. I have no idea how long this deal will last, so I would get to the gettin’ if I were you.
