K'naan Goes Global

The Somalia-born rapper fled war-torn Mogadishu with his family when he was 13, and settled in Toronto in the early 90's.  Now, he's making waves around the world with his song "Wavin' Flag", chosen as the anthem for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa.  The National's Adrienne Arsenault travelled with him on the Mexico leg of his world tour to find out how much life has changed for the young musician.
