[New Video] Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) – N*ggas In Poorest

February 23, 2012

This is the realest video I’ve seen in a hot minute. As much as I LOVE Jay and Ye, and yes when they  performed N*ggas in Paris eight times during the second Toronto show, I said the words right along with them. But let’s face it – they’re speaking about a fantasy lifestyle – unattainable for most of us, and so far removed from real life that the music is just an escape – which is probably why we love it so much.

Leave it up to Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), to give the world a clue about real life for the rest of us, and bitch slap you back to reality…. Just watch…
