Mos Def (aka Yasiin Bey) covers MF Doom

Recently footage of Mos Def (aka Yasiin Bey) covering some of the work of MF Doom – in particular “Rainbows/Fancy Clowns/Fazers,” “Beef Rap,” “Strange Ways,” “Accordion,” “Curls,” “All Caps” and “Mayo Clinic” (over a J. Dilla beat for On No’s “Move, Pt. ). Shot last spring in Fort d’Aubervillers by Samuel Thiebaut, edited by Antoine Keninon and produced by Culturebox, the video series has one of the great contemporary emcees paying homage to another contemporary great emcee; if you had no idea how ridiculous Doom is, the 9 tracks that Mos Def covers should convince you. How such incredible footage remained hidden for the better part of a year is a mysterious to me but no matter, it’s here for all of our enjoyment. Check out Beyondoom.
