“Ain’t Nothing Like You (Hoochie Coo)” (Live on Letterman) (Video)

    David Letterman’s show seems like a strange place to showcase the Blakroc album, but Mos Def and Jim Jones, along with the Black Keys, showed up last night (Dec. 8) to perform “Ain’t Nothing Like You (Hoochie Coo).” Mos Def has been doing the promotional rounds for his own album recently, so made an obvious choice for this performance.


    The track is one of the most overtly rock-oriented songs on the album, and was perhaps picked with Letterman’s frail audience in mind. But, let’s face it, Raekwon was never going to show up on a late night talk show and deliver “Stay off the Fuckin’ Flowers,” although what a moment that would have been.
