Nappy Riddem has graciously given us a truly bangin' mixtape with their funked of versions of classic tunes by Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Zap Mama, Kanye West, and more, as well as their own song "Angle It".

Rex Riddem and Mustafa Akbar are the duo at the heart of performance wunderkinds Nappy Riddem. They seamlessly blend hip-hop, soul, Afrobeat, funk and reggae into a cohesive whole aimed at packed dancefloors. Next week their debut album One World Sovereignty releases via Fort Knox Recordings, the Washington DC renegade funk ‘n’ soul label. It’s a perfect home for genre-mashers like Nappy Riddem, who joyfully respect no boundaries, instead drawing from virtually every genre of the African Diaspora. To celebrate the new album, Nappy Riddem has graciously given us a truly bangin’ mixtape with their funked of versions of classic tunes by Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Zap Mama, Kanye West, and more, as well as their own song “Angle It”. It’s a perfect collection of warm sounds that’ll heat up our rapidly cooling autumn days. The full tracklist after the jump, while you can now pre-order One World Sovereignty.
