Ian Kamau – You, I (Prod. Jai Nitai Lotus) [Audio]
It doesn’t get more soulful than this. Ian Kamau, who hails from Toronto, met Jai Nitai Lotus in Montreal in 2012 and ever since, they have wanted to collaborate together musically. That happened this summer, when Kamai came back to the city. He linked up with the rapper/producer and he recorded the vocals for You, I over Lotus’s organic sampled productions. The track was later mastered by Shash’U.
Kamau said in a statement published on Bandcamp:
After traveling throughout Africa the previous years my mind was on collaborations with artists from some of my favorite places; Montreal is a favorite of mine. Nitai and I organized a time, spent an evening at his home in NDG around the dinner table with his wife and daughter and by the end of the evening we had recorded a simple song.
He sings and raps about the insecurities that surround a relationship. Take a look at the fresh visuals for You, I.
