Fanaka Nation

Fanaka Nation has been consistently adding color to the Minneapolis rap scene. His worldly & booming style can be described as "Culture rap” fusing hip hop with African & other world sounds. The Minnesota-born artist is a melting pot of cultures, reflected in his eclectic music which is relatable to audiences around the world. From being on Soulja Boy's US tour to selling out Minnesota's legendary venue, First Avenue's 7th St Entry, he is a fast-rising star with longevity. Fanaka records under the independent label Kilimanjaro Records.
