Lander Khadel

Lander Khadel's ambition to keep 
UK hip-hop in rude health means 
he'll be one to watch in 2011 and beyond...

Don't Cry has been leaked from Lander Khadel's 2nd mixtape World Peace & Fast Cars 2 and features famous speeches by Peter Tosh on the likes of poverty and aid.

Life In Paris freestyle - Lander Khadel

Much Kudos
