Shafiq En’ A-Free-Ka has been entirely composed with an armoury of outboard gear effects, synthesizers, electric guitars, strings, horns, a lot of modulation. “Hip-hop mastered the beat, but they didn’t do nothing with the changes,” says Shafiq. On the album Shafiq recruits Bilal, Sa-Ra member Om’Mas Keith, emcee Count Bass D, London’s rising songstress Fatima, Sa-Ra vocalist Rozzi Daime, and a whole army of musicians and engineers.
With an ability to write profound lyrics with killer hooks, Shafiq alongside soulstress Georgia Anne Muldrow is the only person to write for Erykah Badu and his talent for writing is evident throughout the 17-track LP.
As part of Sa-Ra, Shafiq has become part of an expansive artistic community in LA working alongside Erykah Badu, Count Bass D and J*DaVeY. This is how albums used to be made – not just a collection of songs, but a message to the messengers: A-free-ka UNITE.
