This whole Niggas In Paris craze has been working on my nerves for weeks now (that live video is not “next-level”, it’s ugly, admit it). So happy to see Yasiin step up and flip this one. Takes guts to make the move he’s making right now, as if changing his name wasn’t suicidal enough.
Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) dropped this first track for his Top 40 Underdog series which will see him rework various Top 40 HipHop tracks with “more socially conscious” rhymes. First off is Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “Niggas In Paris”.
