Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) | Ni**as in Poorest

The newly reinvented Mos Def has offered us an audio reinterpretation, of  Jay and Ye’s, “Ni**as in Paris.” Bey offers us a newly formulated mix of the production that meshes science fiction sound with socially astute lyricism. Think: Noam Chomsky meets Paul Laurence Dunbar meets Ray Bradbury. The track is rumored to be off an upcoming project that will feature Bey offering alternative versions of Top 40 hits. I can’t wait to hear the Bey version of Adele’s, “Someone Like You.” The audio is below…enjoy.
