new mos def

June 6, 2009

I heard Mos Def was working on a new album, but I didn’t know bootleggers already their hands on it.  I’m really hoping Mos can still rip after all that acting business.  Don’t get me wrong – I love Def Jam Poetry.  And Mos is a pretty good actor.  But come on!  After his last flop, True Magic, I was SO disappointed.  He has such a great flow that combines complexity with smoothness.  Black On Both Sides is one of my favorite hip hop albums from start to finish.

Well, check it out for yourself.
