for the millionth time. Ive watched this movie tons of times and it always puts me in the best mood, its amazing how a movie can influence your mood and your memories. Well I really paid attention to the movie like the details, the colors, the reactions of the characters and what amazed me is everything in the movie is sending off good vibes. I love the way the northeast looks I really wanna experience that life style its amazing. anyways Cadillac Records came on after BeKindRewind and it was cool how mos def was in both movies. I have yet to finish Cadillac Records but so far I know that the white dudes in the 50s totally ripped off black people. Im glad no other race has tried latin music but why would you that fan base is totally concerned about dance not poetry. Michel Gondry stays winning thats why hes my favorite.

Mos Def spitting over the RZA's Black Mozart beat (I'm assuming the RZA produced this too). This song was intended to be on the Ecstatic but did not make it to the final cut. I feel like Inspectah Deck killed this beat.

Finally a source for all things Jay Dee, I just finished reading the biography and it is amazing how great of a person James Yancey was. He was really good at physics and math and used that knowledge to compose his music. its an amazing read check it.

The Rza-rector finally revealed the sample he used on ice cream.
Ive always wondered where it was from because it said it just sampled Method Man's Ice Cream Man demo but now we all know the answer.

The Cosby Mysteries Intro - Watch today’s top amazing videos here
He was known as Dante Beze on hit show The Cosby Mysteries. Okay I dont think it was a hit but who knew he would be one of the greatest mc's ever to grace the mic? Mos Def is truly a well-rounded artist.
I think this show paid him enough money to take all his homies including Kweli to McD's after a cypher, and thats how Black Star came to be...
