Even though the college I work for is bitch-made, and I have to go to work on Monday morning. . . I'll still make sure my ass is in NYC for HHK. I missed one, and I vow to never miss another. With that being said. . . I also have a fun jam lined up that I hope everyone will enjoy :)

Man! After seeing Mos Def with his 16-piece band at the BAM Opera House last night (along with my boy Axiom The Axiomatic Disciple, what's up Cliff) and now watching this, I am reminded of Biggie's words: "You never thought that hip-hop would take it this far". And I mean psychologically and musically, not just in terms of success. That song is a mature piece of work right there. And the Mighty Mos was downright incredible. Among the songs he and his band covered (or at least did snippets of): "Passin' Me By" (Pharcyde), "Poison" (BBD), "That Girl" (Stevie Wonder), "Rainbows" (MF Doom/Madlib), an AMAZING medley of "Kick In The Door" (Biggie) and "I Put A Spell On You (Screamin' Jay Hawkins, which is the source of the Kick In The Door sample, for f's sake!!!), "Stakes Is High" (De La Soul - mixed with "Umi Says", this was the finale), and a really beautiful and surprising take on "Like A Hurricane" (Neil Young). Also a James Brown song I couldn't place.

I mean, it was meta-hip-hop. It was hip hop as art canvas. It was something else. It was beautiful.
