It’s been a lonnnggg time since Mos Def did anything that really impressed me. But I’ll tell ya, this Yasiin Bey fella is captivating to say the least. Released on the anniversary of Malcolm X’s assassination, Mos/Yasin just put out a banger of a remix video to Kanye and Jay-Z’s highly overplayed “Niggas in Paris” track. This is going to get a lot of internet play over the next few days for good reason. It’s iconic and powerful and everything that artistic expression is supposed to be.
