Husayn just dropped a new disc and he reminds everyone where he comes from. En’ A-Free-Ka, the solo album from Sa-Ra Creative Partners, shows Husayn sitting inside Africa by the Yard, a store in Leimert Park Village.
The interview by Phillip Mylnar is titled: The Sound of Leimert Park Hip-Hop Zulu rising (again).
"When hip-hop existed not on record but via the playing of snippets of other people’s records, funky eclecticism was king. Led by Afrika Bambaataa, a native of the Bronx whose move from gang member to hip-hop icon and founder of the Universal Zulu Nation was, in part, prompted by a trip to Africa, early park jams would reverberate with the sound of a couple of bars of Electric Light Orchestra meshing into a moment of Bill Withers, Twilight 22 musically commingling with Atlantic Starr," Mylnar writes.
