Santigold is far from underground but I felt this song, and her entire discography in general, deserves to be heard more.
The multi-talented songstress is one of the first black faces I personally saw in a genre other than R&B and Hip-Hop. I am truly inspired by her authenticity in a musical space where African-Americans are rarely in. Recently, Santi released her Dancehall mixtape, I Don't Want: The Gold Fire Sessions. My favorite track from the project, "Run The Road," shares her honest opinions of being in the music industry.
