Album Review

With 2000's Shoki Shoki, Femi Kuti fully stepped out of the shadow of his late father, Fela Kuti. With this record he begins casting his own shadow. Still Afro-beat, it brings in artists like Mos Def and Common to align itself with hip-hop. The musical pace is less frenetic, but the mood remains as intense as it's always been, as one listens to the scorching "Traitors of Africa" or "Eko Lagos" shows. Kuti has matured, and with that he can reveal more of himself, like the debt to his mother shown on "Walk on the Right Side" or the very personal "'97," which commemorates the three deaths the family suffered that year. Kuti's band, the Positive Force, is tighter than ever, and able to play with more varied colors in its arrangements, allowing instrumentals in addition to some blowing, often from Kuti himself. Like his father or Bob Marley, Kuti has become the voice of the common man, not only in Africa but everywhere, concerned with justice, both personal and political. Varied, accomplished, with Fight to Win Kuti has made his first great album.

Excellent record...

Jumping rhythms, solid production, politically explosive lyrics and a great supporting turn from Mos Def...What more could you ask for? Afrobeat master Femi Kuti at his best...Not sure what the dude who gave it 2 stars was smoking...

he stands strong!!

Most people in Femi's position would probably fold under wieghty expectation of being a legend's son in the same discipline,yet he and his music seem to thrive.This album stands on it's own.You wouldn't need to know the kuti legacy to enjoy this.Luv the mos def collabo!

The eldest son of Afro-beat legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, Femi Kuti (born Olufela Olufemi Anikulapo Kuti) spent years playing in his father's band before eventually rising to superstardom following his father's death in the late '90s. Since few artists can match the elder Kuti's musical legacy, Femi's association with his father has been both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, it's never been difficult for Femi to garner press or attention, and MCA went out of its way to push his career with...
