Mos Def Expanded

DJ Rashad Hayes from NYC dedicates this mix to Mos Def. It includes 23 classic tracks with a playtime of one hour. Most of the tracks have been released around the time of Mos Def’s debut album. The mix has been posted on Mos Def’s official Facebook Account too, so we definitely have a quality mix here. Audio stream, tracklist and a personal statement of DJ Rashad Hayes below.

One of my favorite MC’s of all time is Mos Def. The man was so damn fluid on the mic and actually cared about the things he talked about. A true poet. Growing up, it was very important for me to see people who were actually intelligent while still retaining that cool factor.

I think many times in the black community, you equate a person being extremely well-read as either snobby and elitist or a straight sell-out with no self-awareness. Mos was able to shatter those misconceptions beautifully. The man is an award-winning actor, true mc, poet, and producer.

And he does all of them with skill and a nobility. Hip-hop is meant to serve as a positive beacon for the community. Salute Mos aka Dante Smith. Another tribute mix. (From: DJ Rashad Hayes)
