Mannie Fresh Previews New Yasiin Bey Track “Let’s Go”

The illustrious Mannie Fresh recently sat down with Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Frannie Kelly at NPR headquarters in D.C. for the first ever live episode of the Microphone Check podcast. Mannie’s interviews are always interesting and enlightening but the headline here is the new collaboration with Yasiin Bey that he previews, in full, at around 36 and a half minutes in. The track is called “Let’s Go”, and it bumps. If you’re pressed for time you can jump to about the 32 minute mark, where Mannie speaks on his working relationship with Mos and the song itself which he says they just finished the other day.

After the interview was over, Mannie hit the turntables and spun and impromptu set of bounce remixes of tracks like Earth Wind and Fire’s “September”, Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” and Kanye’s “Good Life”.
