This dapper, Mos Def lookalike is a little known commodity over here in the US, but he’s gotten big over in England. Blessed with a vocal delivery that is equal parts Bill Withers and Ray Lamontange, he is an outstanding talent and his band is as soulful and funky to match. Check out his hit I Need A Dollar on the flipside, along with some nice bonuses. As always, just right click the songs to download, but this is an artist that you should definitely support

Never has the Velvet Undergound sounded so soulful! And the arrangement is perfect.
And he also does a cover of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” that would make Ella Fitzgerald proud.
