Listen: Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) – “Niggas In Poorest”

16 Jan

Yasiin Bey, formerly known as Mos Def, has used the celebration of Martin Luther King Day as the launching pad for his Top 40 Underdog series in which he freestyle raps over and reimagines Top 40 tracks in a more socially conscious and politically relevant manner. The first Top 40 track that Bey has undertaken is Kanye West and Jay-Z‘s hit “Niggas In Paris” from their collaborative album Watch The Throne. You can listen to the drastically reimagined Yasiin Bey cut below, courtesy of Soul Culture.
