Freebie | Mos Dub: Mos Def Meets Dub


Big ups to Seizure Chicken on twitter for pointing this out! From Max Tannone, the guy who brought you the Jaydiohead (Jay-Z x Radiohead), comes Mos Dub.  Blending Mos Def lyricism with various reggae and dub cuts, into a well crafted piece of music.  Mos Def really should look into doing a reggae/dub record after hearing this.
