MJFELA vs. The AfroBeatles: Say Say Say

Rich Medina, The Marksmen, AfroStreet Records and MJFELA.COM present:

the prequel to The King Meets The President in Africa:

The AfroBeatles: FELA meets the Boys from Liverpool (The Black & White Album)

If Michael Jackson is The King of Pop, and Fela Kuti is The King of Afrobeat, then the Beatles are of course, the Kings of Rock & Roll. Dominating the music industry as a band, composers, performers and activists, The Beatles are icons of Rock & Roll, known as the best band ever. AfroStreet once again takes a bold move into remix/mashup territory bringing masters of entirely unrelated genres together in an epic blend just in time for the worldwide HD broadcast of FELA! Live from The National Theatre in London on January 13th. Check out this MJFELA vs AfroBeatles mix of “Say, Say, Say” and then experience The AfroBeatles: FELA meets the Boys from Liverpool at AfroBeatles.com | @afrobeatles

MP3: A-WOLL Ft. Nottz – “Active”

While Grammy Award-winning producer/rapper Nottz continues to ride high on the 2010 release of his debut solo album, You Need This Music, 2011 figures to be another busy year for the Virginia-based artist. Starting off the new year on a high note, Nottz is releasing a new collaborative track, with Compton, California rapper A-WOLL. The two originally linked in 2010 – A-WOLL cites Nottz as his favorite producer – and the resulting effort is “Active,” a fusion of A-WOLL’s street oriented raps with Nottz bass heavy boom-bap, which will appear on A-WOLL’s debut album, To Whom It May Concern, scheduled for a 2011 release.
