Yasiin Bey & Mannie Fresh Recording New Track “OMFGOD”

An unlikely but thoroughly brilliant collaboration has taken place between Mos Def/Yassin Bey and durrty south hero Mannie Fresh, who’s beats and rhymes I have loved since this apocalypse of strings landed in my ears back in 1999. Mos is well known to most people outside of hip-hop (and we all know how nice he can sound on more obvious collabs) but you have to love a certain type to feel Mannie – his southern grind isn’t the most palatable to everyone. But clearly Mighty Mos has impeccable taste in digging Mannie, who even made a cameo on Treme. Fire.
