I was only ready to post this after having played it out loud last weekend. Works at the right time, for not too long though. I know its a critical tune, if i were to listen to the lyrics, which i won’t – like i said many times before – i stopped listening to rap vocals a long time. No matter if the intention is good or bad, its definitely the wrong mantras to carry with you in everyday life. I don’t care about his interpolation on last years biggest rap tune, i also don’t wanna become occupied with story telling – of who, why and what. I simply don’t care. It’s a good tune with a good energy here.
Nice remix of the Gulf Aid Allstars aka Mos Def, Lenny Kravitz, the Preservation Hall Band, Trombone Shorty, and Tim Robbins, the remix would have even worked up a proper storm w/o the oldschool drums and some moombahton or latin drumming, but it flawlessly manages to keep the vibe of the original track and is therefore a really solid refix. Great original in the first place and i just love playing this jam. Mos Def can do anything and i guess i’d like it, oh wait…he does anything and i do like his stuff.
in case you missed Mos Defs History video ft Talib, like i did, here you go:
This weekends Hype was definitely Kanyes G.O.O.D. Friday track, which is to date my favourite one – just check out the way Mos Def sets it off. Featuring Charlie wilson, Raekwon and Mos Def.

perfect for this hot summer night, an all the way ragtime sounding tune, by these cats: “Mos Def, Lenny Kravitz, the Preservation Hall Band, Trombone Shorty, and Tim Robbins teamed up recently to record It Ain’t My Fault to benefit Gulf Aid, a nonprofit created in response to the oil spill off the Louisiana Coast.
