Saadi & Bajah - Lights Up NYC

According to Saadi, “Lights Up NYC" deals with the relationship every artist has with the struggle to live and create in NYC. It was inspired  Pupa Bajah’s story of coming to New York with the Dry Eye Crew from Sierra Leone. Bajah and Boshra met at an Antibalas show in Brooklyn, immediately went back to Saadi's studio in the East Village and "Lights Up NYC" was born. You can check out a live performance of the track after the jump.
