This time, Mos Def goes to the source for a lyric check!
[previously: MOS DEF - a fan of DOOM]
SICK!!!!!!!! They gotta collab!!!!!
This is very interesting… and almost abnormally genuine. You can tell that they’re just kickin it somewhere, talkin about who knows whatever under the sun… and somehow, jumped into a convo about each other’s music? I wasn’t there so, this is just my interpretation of what I’m seeing. I remember that first video yall put up where Mos was quoting some of DOOM’s lyrics in the studio. That was dope! People who love music usually do that… but you hardly see it on video or on the net these days. I guess cats be too cool to show they’re fan side… or perhaps, a camera isn’t on them when they’re letting it show. For whichever the reason, this video definitely turns the scenario in another direction. You hear Mos kickin DOOM’s lyrics… and you hear someone coaching him through the parts he’s drawing a blank on… but from the first part that this other person says, i’m like, “hold up, that sounds like DOOM!” …so it continues and gets even more into things… and after about 10 more seconds of the lyric checks, you KNOW it’s him! …as if him coming over to get in the shot doesn’t remove all doubt.
This leads me to another set of my own questions. What were they talking about before it got to this recording? How did two of the most hardest cats to catch up with off-stage, get caught up with in a room together? I can tell that they’re not in a studio or at a show somewhere so, where the f@ck are they? And how in the hell did yall manage to be in the midst of this all? I mean, for real… them cats just don’t be f@ckin with dudes for no reason!
