Do Remember: 5 Jay Electronica and Mos Def (aka Yasiin Bey) Collaborations

Saturday, March 1st, 2014

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

You know what hip-hop needs more of in 2014? Jay Electronica and Mos Def (uh, I mean, Yasiin Bey—sorry, I’m still getting use to calling him that, though I do think it’s an ill name). Both Jay and Bey have popped up randomly over the past year (they even appeared together on a record with The Bullitts), but during a 2013 that saw full-lengths from everyone under the hip-hop sun, both these guys were relatively quiet on the scene. Aside from guest appearances on Mac Miller’s LP and Big Sean’s “Control” with Kendrick Lamar (and his soundtrack appearances with The Bullitts), Jay Elec was mostly just seen frolicking with his lady-mate Kate Rothschild out in London (and seen not dropping the long-awaited Act II: The Patents of Nobility). As for Yasiin, he put out some ill shit with Mannie Fresh and was caught on tape performing live a few times, but other than that, he stayed pretty low-key, too.

As new rappers come forward and claim their spot in the game, let’s never forget that these are two of the illest MCs currently residing on planet Earth. So while we wait for them to re-emerge and tuck everyone’s 2014s in (are we ever going to get that joint Simpatico EP?), let’s revisit five Jay Electronica and Mos Def (aka Yasiin Bey) collaborations that are still worthy of heavy rotation. Do remember.

Video: Rare Kanye West Interview From 2002

Monday, November 4th, 2013

Incredible hour-long interview with MTV’s “You Heard It First” that has never seen the light of day until now, subjects ranging from everything from meeting No I.D. in Chicago, early Roc-A-Fella days and predictions for the future that were pretty much all accurate. I’m guessing this never aired because this is almost exactly the same thing as “Last Call” from College Dropout, but more detailed.

I also realized I had never heard the full story about how he met Mos Def and Kweli. The story about Jay-Z coming up with “H to the Izzo” and him running into the bathroom to call his mom is CLASSIC.
