Classic Mos Def Freestyle
I’m sitting here dicking around on the internet not paying attention to the television behind me, when I hear Mos Def’s voice. I turn to the TV and see Mos Def spittin in Dave Chappelle’s SUV. I grab the remote and rewind the DVR and start from the beginning. I know this is old and from 2003 and I also know that this track is off his New Danger album but I know that first verse is off the dome in his car. I’m convinced. This episode aired in 03 but his New Danger album came out in 04. He spit that first verse on the spot, liked it, then added it and re-recorded it as the opening verse to the song. I think the second go around is written but so what. His flow caught my attention out of nowhere and I gotta give props here. Mos shows his skills with as many words as possible. So many words…
Oh yeah, and I look forward to him changing his name to Yasiin. Who are you trying to be like, Puffy or Prince?
And sorry for the shitty quality but it’s all I could find.
