true.

mos def's rapping abilities are rivaled only by his remarkable acting skills.

Hah, saw Mos at Rock the Bells (Dead Prez was great, by the way) and he spent most of the time saying "Oh oooh oohohohoooo ohy yooo!!!" in a melodic manner. Then actually walked to the speaker at one point when his 2 DJs were playing a record (literally, he was on stage listening to records for a while) and humped on it once or twice for effect. When he rapped he was on-point and didn't skip lines and shit, but there was maybe 15 minutes of that at an hour or so show. Kweli came out (to make up for Tribe canceling... yeah, thanks) and blanded the whole place up, they did some Blackstar, and I left feeling thankful that Dead Prez, Redman/Method Man, and Pharsyde put on good shows, because the rest was pretty crappy overall.

+99 He takes care of his business. the whole SFR crew looks out for us people who work hard for our money and willing to sacrifice a small piece for their work.


Agreed. I saw Sage, B. Dolan and Prolyphic in Phoenix, and Sage and Prolyphic had their flight delayed for several hours. Dolan was came from somewhere else so he was there and got up told everyone the bad news that the show would start late. But he was hanging out with everyone. Then Dolan did some spoken word to make up for it. Right as he ended Sage came out and said they would get shit started and would be going till 2 am if need be. And Sage took till 2 am with a like a 90 minute set including the SFR possee cuts. And when he wasn't on stage Sage was at the booth talking with everyone and selling what little merch they had because the airline lost their luggage too.


I saw Talib Kweli on the Sprite Liquid mix tour 5 or 6 years ago. I thought he was great.

Sage blows him out of the water in every single aspect of the hip hop game.


that is laughable

ever hear "travelin man"? dude rips it at the end
and Black on Both Sides has several very very good songs

when he is focused and not lazy he can be near great
but the guy hasn't put out anything decent in at least 6 years
but the talent and ability are there.

why compare sage to mos def? what possible insights could this comparison yield? they're not even remotely trying to do the same thing. it's like matching Fork vs. Spoon, which is superior? Discuss! In my humble opinion, both can be quite efficacious, though for entirely different reasons, and frankly I'm glad to have both at my disposal.

There's some fine songs on that album. (Some shitty ones too, but the album bangs pretty hard. ) I love the beat on Bang, but the hook sucks bawls. Pressure is a hot track. The one's where he's rapping like a preacher are good. The ones where he brags about mouthfucking bitches ain't so good.

The black star album and his first solo album were a breath of fresh air especially considering the fact that nsync, brittany spears, and southern rap were just starting to dominate the airwaves during that span. And eventhough Mos Def hasn't been relevant in years black on both sides still gets play in my system every so often.


And to think that Mos Def got most of his fame from his appearances on the Chapelle Show is just straight up poppy cock and malarkey.

If Mos Def were honest he would have called Black On Both Sides: "Don't Bother Turning this Piece of Shit over, because I assure you Both Sides Do Indeed sound Like Turds being Squeezed out of my Asshole"

So he got it from not doing shit since the two decent albums you mentioned? C'mon, "The Chappelle Effect", I'm trying to start something here, go with it. Don't make me cite Charlie Murphy as an example. Because I actually like Charlie and I don't want to do that shit to him, but I will.
