Jay Electronica spoke to MTV on the future of his music, the release of his upcoming album, and future projects he is working on…. “It’s still Act II.

As always, you can expect an onslaught of remixes to accompany any Gorillaz single. While “Stylo” remixes have already started bombarding the house music scene, on this version, Philly’s Chiddy Bang jumps on, offering a more hip-hop feel to the original’s atmospheric style. Def is still in tact, but Bobby Womack is reduced to an [cont.]

Mos Def was apparently outraged with New York Observer column writer D.M. Levine, based on his coverage of a party hosted by Dame Dash’s new DD172 venture. The January article states that Mos Def was seen drinking a beer at the event, something that Mos is very much against. The passage reads as follows: On [cont.]

Mos Def is a tough cat to figure out. His first solo album was straight (and good) hip-hop, his second made him sound like he wanted to be a rocker, and his third – released with no cover art and no promotion – almost made it seem like he was embarrassed by it. Add in [cont.]

    Mos Def has gone through one of the strangest transitions in Hip-Hop history. As a member of Black Star (with Talib Kweli and DJ Hi-Tek), Mos Def began to make a name for himself with his thoughtful rhymes and unique voice.

     It’s been five years since Mos Def’s classic debut album, Black on Both Sides. Since then, Mos has become host of Def Poetry Jam, a thespian of sorts from his career defining role in HBO’s Something The Lord Made, to his smaller bit parts in flicks like Brown Sugar and Monster’s Ball, and a fixture that’s bigger [cont.]

Every couple of years, an emcee comes along that completely redefines the listener’s conception of what hip-hop is. Whether it was the leader of the new school, Rakim, the radical rhyme animal, Chuck D, the abstract poet, Q-Tip, or the wild styler, Busta Rhymes, they each changed the way you looked at the emcee.
