Mos Def Performs New Songs Produced By J. Dilla & Oh No In New York City, New York

Introducing himself as Yasiin Bey, Mighty Mos hit the stage to perform a Dilla cut and rap over an instrumental from Oh No.

Last night, Mos Def hit the stage at New York City, New York’s SOBs where he performed new cuts produced by J. Dilla and Oh No.

Mos hit the stage - also graced by Iggy Azalea, Skeme, Hustle Simmons and more - by introducing himself as Yasiin Bey. He began by rapping over a J. Dilla-produced song, followed by a verse over “The Pain” from Oh No’s Dr. No’s Ethiopium.

Before leaving the stage, Mos advised the crowd to be on the lookout for new projects including No Glasses and Applied Science. Watch the performance below (via HipHopBeef).

    Hip Hoppers keep fuckin up words, like mixtape, mastering, and producer. We need to seperate "beats by" and "produced by" once and for all. People can still get Beats from Dilla, but Dilla can't still produce songs, unfortunately. SEMANTICS, are important

    • Mos Def for life

      Also, the beat is actually made by Madlib. I just checked the double CD again and It was a tribute beat. Hence why It sounds completely distant from his style.

    • Your name will always be Mos Def

      Fair play. But, we were not complaining when raekwon used some of the beats for OB4CL2. It may have something to do with this being a sub-par dilla beat selection on Mos's behalf. Probably one of those post 2000 ones that all the non-hip hoppers/casual dilla fans like.

    its so sad to see lil wayne outsell cats like mos def who are actually talented

    • YESSIR

      yea man what r u talking about? lil wayne is talented as hell AT SUCKING DICK BITCH!

    • gandhi

      thats why yasiin is so ill. cause hes a CONFIDENT INTELLECT.

    • gandhi

      yep. im not a wayne fan at all. but to completely trash someone as untalented just off the fact that ur not a fan is also a reason why hip hop sucks. the shit isnt just dying cause the commercial artists and their fan base are quick to hop on bandwagons and trends, it's also cause the underground artists and their fan base choose to not move the fuck on. so what happens? you have guys with less knowledge doing more stuff.. hence damages upon the shit.. like i said a million times over.. the world is full of doubtful intellects and confident idiots.. you have to somehow fall in between that to lead.
