Any record being released with a moderate amount of hype will almost invariably owe its success to one of three
sides both def black Mos on
Double Vinyl. Plus, it's not very often you hear brushes on a hip hop record. But I was one of the only people in the world who liked Kweli's verses on that album more than Mos's. That beat predates Kanye West's soul sampling and I'm sure influenced him on the come up. Lately I prefer 'History' off The Ecstatic, low key.

If you only know Mos Def from the movies you owe it to yourself to buy this album and listen to the man work on the beat. Midnight Marauders.
