One of the things I truly love about Napoleon Da Legend, is his constant grind. He never stops! His prevailing efforts to make his music known our quite evident, and he’s making sure everyone gets a good dosage of what they should be look forward to on his upcoming first full-length solo album Symphonies of a Lost Soul.
Today, Napoleon Da Legend released yet another new video. This video is for a song called “African in NY,” a track upon which NDL shares his thoughts on his experience as an immigrant living in the U.S. Yeah, don’t be mistaken by his complexion or perhaps swag; Napoleon Da Legend is actually from Comoros, a country in East Africa. He actually grow up in one of the world’s poorest countries, and he’s got quite the experience worth sharing.
His background and desire to share the message of “Africa Is The Future” isn’t just some bandwagon attempt to appeal to audience using pathos (I notice rappers tend to rap about things for mass appeal, but often not reality based), but for Napoleon Da Legend, this song is based upon reality and his personal connection to Africa. Click here to read more one of my previous blog posts in which I discuss NDL, his experience, and why he chose the name “Napoleon Da Legend.”
Napoleon Da Legend hasn’t had an easy life, but he uses his music to spread his message. It’s refreshing to hear his experience, and I think fans will like the direction he takes with his song “African in NY.” It’s a little different from what he usually does (i.e. the singing,) but it works.
Watch the Cyril Mahe directed video below.
