This is a gem courtesy of Alex at RubyHornet:

Mos Def is one my true inspirations and to celebrate the release of his new LP, we’re doing different things all week. Today I posted some very vintage Mos Def that I happened upon at Dr. Wax on the southside of Chicago more than a decade ago. It’s definitely something for the Mos Def fan.

Hit the jump for more info + the track list:

Mos Def’s new LP, The Ecstatic, will hit stores on June 9th. I’ll be among the first in line to cop the new CD, as I’ve done with each Mos Def album since he released Black On Both Sides approximately 10 years ago. I don’t know the exact first Mos Def track that I heard, maybe it was The Lyricist Lounge track, “Body Rock”. It could have been on ATCQ’s Love Movement…I’m not sure, and since the internet wasn’t running things back then, learning of a new artist was a little something extra special. I was a Black Star fan, but it was Mos’ Black On Both Sides that flipped a different switch inside me that still has yet to be turned off. Similar in the way that I searched high and low for Beastie Boys records I didn’t have, my daily trips to Dr. Wax always included a stop at the Mos Def section hoping to see something new, rare, or unreleased. One such trip turned up profitable, as I came across The Underground Album, which at the time I thought was some crazy limited release or something in my excitement. Obviously, it’s more of a collection of tracks that someone put together, ran off with their CD burner and took to mom and pop stores as an official bootleg. Anyway, the tracks are still dope, and in honor of the new release we offer up The Mighty Mos Def: The Underground Album featuring songs such as “Universal Magnetic”, “Little Brother”, and “A Soldier’s Dream”. Grab it below and look for more the rest of the week.

  6. cOLD Says:

    funny high school shit:
    my nigga got into an argument in the middle of the commons and she was saying the classic “little dick” this “wack sex” that. Next day he made shorty come back and apologize in front of everyone. She seemed genuinely sincere

    ^ how did he pull that off? (zilch)

  7. Big_seth Says:

    I think it has something to do with the fact that after OB$CL came out a lot of people did the Mafioso thing & Jay was one of them.

    I don’t know if that’s what you mean, but I heard there was some tension because Rae felt jay bit his shit. as well as biggie & Nas for that matter.

    ^ yea well its common knowledge Jay switched his style up… I’m thinking since Biggie was Jay’s fellow Brooklynite, and Rae wasnt feeling Biggie, then naturally Jay caught some of that. Not sure.

    Who was Rae speaking off in that infamous line: Nigs Nigga, all these fake niggas running with the globe n shit.

    That’s why I dont argue with chicks. If i think Im right then Im usually right. Why the fuck do i need to argue? Nothing pisses a chick off more than you not arguing back.

    But im also reasonable. If im wrong it wont take me long to realize it… But i’ll still wont argue…i’ll just tell her to do what she feels like she needs to do. If it’s some shit u cant get over then leave me, otherwise accept the apology and pipe down.

    90% of the time it’s not serious enough for her to leave.

    ^ word, if you hang in there after the argument, a few days later you forget what you were arguing about to begin with. It aint that serious. (c) the guy that didnt listen to Illmantic OB4CL, until 2007
