Last month, Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day with the release of a brand-new cut, "Ni**as in Poorest." As you are likely aware, the track featuring Bey flexing heavily socio-political rhymes over a manipulation of Hit-Boy's beat for the Throne's "Ni**as in Paris." But since then, we hadn't really heard much from the man formerly known as Mos Def.
That changes now, though, as he shares the appropriately hectic visuals for the track in the memory of Malcolm X, who was assassinated 47 years ago today. It's safe to say X would be proud of Bey's stance and message on "Ni**as in Poorest," which you can try to better understand by watching its video below. [HT]
