Mos Def - 'Casa Bey"

Snick could've never imagined me saying it. But this Mos goes. Off his upcoming album, The Ecstatic. An amazing melody, Mos rides it like he was supposed to. Here is the story behind the story:

The story behind the beat has it that on a recent trip to South America, Mos linked up with well-known Brazilian rapper MV Bill, who gave him a tape with “Casa Forte” on it. Bowled over by the track, when Mos came home, he turned to DJ Preservation to (barely) cut it up into a beat, forming the instrumental.
