    Fela is a god, I have listened to over 20 different albums of his and each one has been at least 4 stars. Only artist I know of besides Miles Davis with that level of prolific dominance.

    In honor of me being a dumbass and deleting that Fela playlist, I'm posting some Fela and inviting you to do the same:

    Maybe his best album, IMO:
