Video: Flying Lotus Learns About His African Roots

With his fourth LP several months behind him, Flying Lotus has some time for reflection. FlyLo recently sat down with OkayPlayer’s OkayAfrica for what turned out to be a fairly life-altering conversation. Teaming up with African Ancestry, OkayAfrica helps FlyLo get a DNA test to learn that his ancestors belonged to the Tikar people of Cameroon.

Watch Flying Lotus discuss his close family and discover his distant relatives in the video above and, if you haven’t already, pick up Until the Quiet Comes on Warp now.
