Throwback Thursday : Blak is Blak – Mau Mau’s

Mau Maus are characters in Spike Lee’s film, Bamboozled. They’re angry hiphoppers, frustrated by the industry’s lucrative, high-profile displays of ignorance, and looking for a way — any way — to make their own activist voices heard.
Mau Maus are: Mos Def, Big Black,Gano Grills, Serch, Canibus Charli Baltimore, Mums, DJ Scratch

I have the Bamboozled trailer after the jump. If you haven’t seen it please go rent it or find it on megaupload. Black comedy, hope you understand the wit.

Untitled (Radio Rip) – Talib Kweli
Feat. Jay Electronica, J.Cole & Mos Def

Monster Combination

This track is dope for rizzeal. Even though I’m still on the fence with Electronica he comes off on this track with no doubt. Talib created something really special with this track right here. As for Mos Def he kinda let me down with his verse when he’s more than capable to ether the beat. Still a press repeat in iTunes track nonetheless. As for my homie Jazelle, I…TOLD…YOU…SO!

J.Cole > Jay Electronica > Talib > Mos Def (Verses in order of ill on this track in my opinion)

Ain’t Nothing Like You – Blak Roc feat Mos Def & Jim Jones

Stong effort from Jim Jones and if you saw the doc you get the joke. Mos Def is the best rapper but chooses not to rap. Check out Blak Roc’s impending album with the same name featuring NICOLE WRAY. I didn’t even know she still did music. Wonderful voice she just needs a platform.
