Almost 15 years after Fela Kuti's death, his musical influence continues to grow. Now, DJ-producer Aaron LaCrate honors the legacy of the Afrobeat pioneer and human rights activist with his new collaborative shirt. The Baltimore native and leader of the record label and clothing company Milkcrate also reworked Kuti's 1977 track "Sorrow Tears and Blood" into a rambunctious B-more club track, turning the song's social message into an all-out celebratory assault.
LaCrate's remix of "Sorrow Tears and Blood" will be released tomorrow, and the Fela Kuti x Milkcrate shirt is available now on Milkcrate's website.
