    It's not quite as immediate as pop-rap requires. As for overestimating his audience's intelligence--or their interest in geopolitical unrest--there are worse ways to fall from the top.

    K'NAAN's a rock-solid songwriter with a charismatic delivery that rains down sparks of cool guy and clever.

    A well-meaning guy who's as pop-savvy as he is pompous, and duller than he is pop-savvy.

    There are a few shining spots, some merely okay ones and an overall sense that K'Naan is savvy enough to play things on the safer side for now.
