I was eating dinner with my 'rents a few nights ago and my father was talking about how he and my mom apparently watch late night talk shows now. He was listing all the great performances they've seen lately and decided we needed to watch them on youtube while we eat. We watched Green Day, Black Eye Peas (my dad thought he should tell me which one Will.I.Am is), and Mos Def. I was sort of laughing inside because I've obviously heard all of these songs before...but wait...not the Mos Def song and seriously, it rules. He plays two timpani drums while rapping. Why are people like Mos and Common so often ignored in the hip hop world while other people (ahem Diddy and Kanye) get accolades for being d bags?
