Mustafa recently released his debut album, When Smoke Rises. At its core, the album is an expression of love – love for friends he lost to gun violence, and love for his community in Regent Park, Toronto.

KEXP's Gabriel Teodros caught up with Mustafa during his recent Live on KEXP at Home session. They spoke about the connection between Regent Park and Seattle's South End, the tests of "unconditional love," healing from trauma, and the search for nuance and truth.
