Alternative hip-hop artist K'Naan dropped by The Recording Academy's headquarters in Santa Monica, Calif., on Sept. 13 for an installment of 5 Questions With… and an intimate set featuring "Fatima," "Take A Minute" and "Wavin' Flag" from his major label debut, Troubadour.
K'Naan answered questions spanning a variety of topics including musical influences, mentoring, songwriting, social media, and Academy membership.
"Social networking — in some ways— that's how my fans have found me," said K'Naan. "I [don't] use it to market music or sell records. I use it mostly because I like to be in touch with my fans. I use it so I can have a direct conversation. I like for people to know that I'm human."
