    Yep, one of Fela's finest in my opinion...

    You may have heard the remake for Red Hot's upcoming Fela Kuti tribute
    album, which features the likes of Femi Kuti, D'Angelo, Kelis, ?uestlove and
    a bunch other great artists. A while back I watched a "behind the scenes"
    video from the recording of this on Red Hot's website (
    which was great - all these cats getting down in the mixing booth to the
    finished track.

    There was also a clip of Missy Elliot recording her Duke Ellington cover up
    there at the time.
