Summary: One Of The Few Tracks I'm Diggin' Off Of Mos Def's Latest
Comment: Man, how many times have we heard this Barry White sample (Nas, Ghosface Killah). The beat is nothing new and not even freaked in an original way so I can't rate it more than 3. Rhyming alongside Mos Def is the (underrated, under acknowledged) "producer" of the beat Minnesota (who has quite a catalogue of classic beats under his belt). Medina Green does NOT rhyme on this track (though you should be able to tell as Medina Green has a very distinctive voice). Both him and Mos Def come off incredibly dope over this Mix Tape-type track (though I suspect that Mos Def ghost-wrote Minnesota's lyrics on this one). Nonetheless, this track is one of the illest tracks off of The New Danger, an album I'm not feeling all that much. Definitely check it out.

Comment: Mos Def, hmm. Do I know that name? Oh! Of course! The man who hasn't put out an album since 1999! Well, b*tches and gentlemen, the man is back; despite rumors that he has "fallen off," the Mighty Mos appears to be back in full force. The bass on this track will smack you in the face, but other than that the beat is fairly simple (and the actual rhyming is essentially Mos and his boy taking quick turns in the booth). The record seems a bit rushed and sloppy, and might not even be new at all as it has an old school vibe to it. If in fact this is a new track, however, it stands as confirmation that Mr. Mos is still the emcee he once was and is ready to give us that long awaited, classic sophomore effort later this year.

Summary: What's Going On?
Comment: Where has Mos Def been? I mean his recent tracks aren't hitting really hard. I like this classic Barry White beat, but more on Nas's "Lost Tapes". It's still a decent track but Mos has lost some lyrical luster.
