Sem spoke to Mos while he was in the UK:

Mos Def hit the UK recently, and he passed through my 1xtra radio show on the eve of copping his Grammy Nominations.

Mos talks on:

*His approach to making albums.
*That Mos/J Cole/Jay Electronica/Talib Kweli collabo.
*The genius of Slick Rick.
*Mos Def vs. Hollywood
*Turning down a role in ‘Tropic Of Thunder’.

and more…..

What do you mean Mos Def x J. Cole x Jay Electronica x Talib Kweli…

    ==================================
    What about the Mos/Jay Electronica/Curren$y collabo

    I think Mos forms a group with whoever’s in the studio on a given night.

    Curren$y is kinda dope but those dudes are gonna be running laps around him on every track…it might work but that shit might be painful to listen to at times.

  10. rex hussla Says:

    I smoked a blunt before I went to sleep last night and then threw on my entire David Axelrod collection and let that shit play the entire night. Man…I was having crazy dreams, definitely has a different part of my brain working today.

    Word. Couldve been undisputed GOAT. But he had to let his cousin know what time it was.

  12. White Says:

    That Mos Def/Slick Rick track is the joint of the year

    Definetly. Too bad the rest of Mos’ album lacked that same potency.

  21. Geronimo P Says:

    Of the new cats…for me it goes Fashawn, Blu, Reks, Jay Elec, Elzhi…I will check for their tracks and not get dissapointed

    ^How did he try to change his lane. Ghost is damn near 40, if not that already. Son has rapped about all there is to rap about. Why not rap about relationships. It wasn’t on some old sappy bullshit. But picture all the r&b features that he’s done and the “Never be the same agains” and “Back like that” type tracks on one cohesive album.

    That shit is fly. Well done. And its not like he’s gonna lose points for doing that shit. He’ll be back spitting darts like always.
