knaan Check Out: Knaan feat. Nas   Nothing to Lose

Having been fairly quiet since the CoS Top Star-earning Troubadour and subsequently becoming the voice of the 2010 World Cup, Somalian-born, Toronto-bred rapper K’naan is set to unleash his new EP, More Beautiful Than Silence, on January 24th via A&M/Octone Records. As an early taste, check out the track called “Nothing to Lose”, which features a cameo from Nas. It’s a simple beat with an uplifting and singable chorus, and sees K’naan make pretty slippery use of the “em” sound as a rhyme-end (verse three, for the eagerly-eared). Watch the lyrics video below (via Complex).

More Beautiful Than Silence also features guest vocals from Nelly Furtado and a track produced by OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder. Te EP is a precursor to K’naan’s third full-length release, set for Spring of 2012. See the tracklist for the EP below, and keep it here for more on that LP.

More Beautiful Than Silence EP Tracklist:
01. Is Anybody Out There (feat. Nelly Furtado)
02. Nothing to Lose (feat. Nas)
03. More Beautiful Than Silence
04. Better (prod. by Ryan Tedder)
