Young Bloods Can't Spell But They Can Rock You In Playstation.
Coming off the heels of his excellent collaboration with Talib Kweli in Black Star, one of my favorite MC's Mos Def released his solo debut Black On Both Sides. Heavy on wicked bass lines, tight snares, subtle samples and tightly wound verses, Def set the bar pretty damned high for himself regarding future recordings. Case in point his sub par sophomore release The New Danger. Irregardless, he is still one of our most potent and talented rappers around today. For tonight's post I'm including two of my favorite tracks off of BOBS. For your listening (dis)pleasure:
Mos Def: Mathematics
Mos Def: Speed Law
