Yasiin Bey – N***** in Poorest
A parody of one of the biggest hip-hop tracks of the year, Yasiin Bey’s “N***** in Poorest” commemorates Malcolm X and chants, “don’t get caught up in no throne.” The single is wonderful and brings on a disarmingly powerful message. Bey, formerly known as Mos Def, has stated that he is remaking hits on his debut album, “Top 40 Underdog,” to keep in the tradition of true hip-hop. I am certainly excited to hear more from this project!
