A couple of weeks ago we were treated to a new song by Yassin Bey, formerly known as Mos Def. Is this new identity for emphasis upon things for which he is less know as an artist? It was titled “Dec 99th – N.A.W”. Now he releases another record, this time titled “Dec 99th – Tall Sleeves”.
The latter opens with zaps of keyboard, then clicking drums, then deep, what seems, double bass. The flow is right in the pocket, and the lyrics seem like a stream of consciousness pouring from his mouth. There are, talking about aspects he is less known for, singing moments on the track, too.
