He changed this song (an original) a bit for the World Cup theme song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utl-uOdX12w

I've been listening to it on repeat for the past month :)

I love love love K'naan. He is a genius. And humble to boot.

And if you're interested, one of my favorites is "In the Beginning." He has a section towards the end of pure poetry. It's incredible. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uq0pygjQK74
