Here is Mustafa – Air Forces (download). The song released with Mp3 streaming [320kbps]. The new track is the latest record from the music act.
The single follows up his debut single, ‘Stay Alive’, which was released earlier in March this year. The track is built around samples of a Sudanese tribal chant while “existing within the framework of contemporary Western music”, a genre which Mustafa describes as “inner city folk music”. The notion is reflected within the music video, which reflects an intersection between two cultures.
In June, Mustafa joined forces with James Blake on ‘Come Back’, a song dedicated to the memory of Smoke Dawg. The rapper was shot dead in Toronto on June 30, 2018.
Baba still reaches me in my sleep
I still hear his stories of war like shrapnel to armed fantasy
my dreams never survive
each nylon string like barbed wire
each melody a cry he never learned to escape
“why are you trying to make me return?” he asks
“where are you taking my blood?”
I retrace our lineage of shared bullets
from the one that claimed my friend
to the one that claimed his
I question it’s intention but lead won’t speak
I archive my memory
“For Allahs sake, why do you feel the need to return?” Baba pleads
but I can’t return where I was never seen
where cousins await trial beneath ground
Mustafa, who also performs under the alias of Mustafa the Poet, first gained worldwide traction for his short film, Remember Me, Toronto. The film touched upon the issue of gun violence in the Canadian city and featured a host of artists including Drake, Baka Not Nice, Gilla and more.
