Marcus Garvey Gets Sampled On @KanyeWest @KidCudi’s “KIDS SEE GHOSTS”!


As promised, Kanye West kicked off a weekly roll out of albums released under the G.O.O.D Music label. This week, he released the long awaited collaborative album, “KIDS SEE GHOSTS” featuring Recording Artist Kid Cudi. While the album featured 7 tracks, there was one that caught many off guard. On track 4 titled “Freeee” a.k.a. “Ghost Town Pt. 2“, it starts off with the words of the late Jamaican Scholar, Activist, Teacher, and National Hero, The Rt. Excellent Marcus Mosiah Garvey. Produced by Kanye, vocals from a speech and Interview Garvey was a part of in the early 1920’s about his trial and persecution for Mail Fraud was used in the first few seconds of the track.

Marcus Garvey’s influence and his teachings continue to reach many all over the world. If you wish to know more about this great man, check this out.
