Talib Kweli and Yasein Bey (Mos Def) are sharing two songs with their fans. You Already Knew is off Black Star’s upcoming mixtape ‘Black Star Aretha’ produced by OhNo that pays tribute to Aretha Franklin.
I am talking about the golden days when Jeezy was the proper role model for mental health, and 50 Cent was the new Nirvana?

“Whats drugs my dealer?, asks Kanye on the breakout banger “Nwords in Paris”. Hopefully, the newly free T.I. no longer asks this question when looking for crystal meth. T.I. still can rap well, and even sounds masculine when rapping in french.
