Out of all of the hip-hop/rap songs on the countdown most of them are older...say 90s or 80s. Mos Def isnt your typical rapper though so his 2004 single breaks the mold. Not only does Mos Def make conscious rap with fantastic beats, he's a great actor, which also breaks the mold of bad... rapper/actors. :)
Its the only Mos Def entry on the chart so i suppose it would make this my favourite Mos Def song...whats yours???
