Rae & Mos
“The Chef is back with yet another mixtape serving as interlude to his OB4CL2 release this August 11th. This one is called “Blood on Chef’s Apron,” and the compilation features 25 exclusive tracks, hosted by HOT 97’s, DJ Absolut. Some notable guests include, Noreaga, AZ, Busta Rhymes & B-Real from Cypress Hill. Based on that lineup with exception to Busta, it’s evident Raekwon is sticking to the formula. Non commercial, and real serious. Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2 releases August 11th, 2009.” Hypebeast.com
“Mr. Flaco Bey better known by the masses as Mos Def has unleashes a new single from his upcoming LP, The Ecstatic. The inspiration behind this samba, jazz-funk melodic piece came about during his recent expedition across South America. It wasn’t until his trip to Brazil, where he managed to stumble upon this compelling track from Brazilian band, Banda Black Rio. The song, Casa Forte, was then given to his producers DJ Preservation to sample. The two managed to chop up the track and formulate this exquisite instrumental, which then was laced by an effortless spitfire of lyrics from Mos Def himself. The Ecstatic is slated for a release on June 09, 2009.” Hypebeast.com
For all you Rae & Mos heads. Highly recommended. Especially for mashing or trick jamming.
P.S. Mos’ alias & my name are similar. How cool is that.
