Rappers just love to release new music in a less than typical fashion these days, don’t they? And Mos Def is no exception. He could have leaked “World Premiere” to some blogs, premiered it on a music website, or posted it on his Twitter. But instead, he performed the track live on the Daily Habit.
There’s no word on whether or not this will appear on a new album he’s working on, but OkayPlayer has speculated that “World Premiere” could be its lead single. If that’s true, it appears that we’re in for yet another solid record from Mos, who collaborated (again) with Madlib on this new cut. It’s a brassy tune that rides a killer bass line and features Mos wearing both his rapper and singer hats.
