alot better than blak jesus
nice mellow track... what half of you niggas don't realize is this is RIGHT in Mos Def's lane. that's why Kanye made the beat like that. 4/5
For all the ignorant assholes going on about whether the song is "good" or "sucks", go back to school and learn the definition of subjective. Then eat a barrel and kill yourself. 4/5
It's not a club banger, nothing wrong with that it's got that late night driving vibe
Dont force yourself to like this just because it's Mos Def. I like him too but this song is just wac. He has bad taiste in beats some times..... Most times.
You're so subtle. Mommy must be proud.
4 4 4
9th Wonder - Brooklyn On My Mind (Crooklyn Dodgers Pt. 3) f/ Mos Def, Memphis Bleek, and Jean Grae. Same lyrics as this one.
K. This is smooth. I feel this here. Dude doesn't need to spectacular beat. Ye could have done better but the overall it's nice as hell.
Boring??? Naw This is a smooth track. I'll respect yalls opinion though
Mos Def has always been a nice emcee no doubt,
Kanye provides a semi decent beat but the emcee outshines the production in this case.
Kanye's genius is in production, not rappin. I wish he would hang the mic up.
Look at this vagina right here gettin all upset when somebody has a different opinion. Go get your inhaler and relax, nerd.
stfu you clown. hes great at both.
I Disagree... Yeezy Does His Thing on Tha Mic Still
FRESH!!! Mos Def never lost it & Kanye's best production in a while
Kanye gave this nigga some throwaway shit
It's the matter of one's taste.. I'm not a fan of this beat either.
Nah, this fits the MC perfect.
boring...kanye gave that nigga the weakest beat ever
That Anonymous person is the same fucking kid commenting repeatedly as "different" people. Dont hate what you dont understand child. This HipHop you are listening to isn't at the level which you could understand or even learn to respect. Its much higher then that. You stick to your Lil Waynes, and 2Chainz. Let the real HipHop for the Big Boys. Anyways though this nigga Yasin Bey aka Mos Def is one of the deadliest MC's in the fucking game, time has nothing on niggaz like dude. Killa flow.
How can you not like this? This is Hip-Hop. This is what Hip-Hop is. If you don't like this, you don't like Hip-Hop...
Well, the beat sounds like a cheap one made in a rush. That's the problem. Mos Def needs a better beat. I'm the first Anonymous who replied to the comment written by Hater_Deluxe. Sorry for my bad english, it's not my native..
Nothin "weak" about this beat. It's just a smoother soul sound.
Just because it happens to be a Mos Def song, it doesn't automatically mean this is a good one. It has a way too weak beat, and it makes the song sound very boring.
this track is kinda boring not feeling it
For all these fuckin haters - this shit got transformed into "Quiet Dog". 1000 times better than this joint.
I fell asleep in the middle and woke up in the end.
I'm in the laboratory bench pressin the standard....DOPE AS FUCK!
Lyric are Old.....as hell
Big Mos fan, though!!!
Finally a dope track from this bummed out website.
coolest ive heard in a while
everybody saying this is outdated clearly cant read from true magic which came out in 06 plus i miss the old kanye soul beats
Dumbass young heads talking recklessly on here. They'll never get it.... a beat/track does not have to be new to be dope. Listen to what the fuck youre saying. You're basically discrediting everything that's not new music. That's absolutely ignorant way to think and you don't know the first thing about what's dope. Without the so called "old beats" hiphop/rap would not be where it is today. The majority of the new music I hear today is just a watered down version of something that was dope in the 80s/90s anyway. These youngins need to stop worrying so much about image and sales and focus on the real art of hip hop...
sounds dated... so what?? Pretty good joint, thats the hip-hop, prefer this over all those autotuned tracks with same beat.
Why does it sound dated? because it doesn't have super-sonic photon phasers shooting off in the background, with voice warps, autotune robots, and gun shots ringing off? This is actual music. I'll take 'dated' hip-hop over the over-engineered and under-produced soulless cheesy ass phony shit that comes out now. At least this nigga got his own mind, his own style, and is in charge of the making of his own shit. I only listen to grown-up rappers. You grown men listening to trap music need to grow the fuck up and get a job.
Mos Def always comes correct. Dope joint.
disappointed...sounds dated and track was uneventful...but I still think MosDef is one of the DOPEST MC's Ever...Peace QaadiruRashaad
Elijah. I can see what your saying... Raymond`s stori is inconceivable, I just purchased a new Peugeot 205 GTi after bringing in $7211 this past 5 weeks and just a little over ten thousand this past-munth. it's definitly the nicest work I've ever done. I began this 8-months ago and straight away began to earn over $77, per-hr. I went to this site........ ZOO80 com

This is from the True Magic sessions, an album released in 2006 so yeah obviously it's outdated since we are in 2013.

Mos Def never disappoints. #RealRap Bedstuy Stand up! #BringRealRapBack
FIRE!!! Why didnt he put this on the album?!?....
Sounds dope, but isn't this the 1st verse the one from 'Brooklyn on my Mind' by 9th Wonder?
You're right, but his flow is better on the Kanye produced beat
this is the type of shit i expect from Mos Def
Yasiin Bay ! 5STAR
