Artist: Mos Def
Label: Rawkus (Uni)
Genre: Underground Hip-Hop/Rap
Release: Jun 2002   My Rating: 0
Duration: 71:21
Summary: It very well could be one of the best records ever made. With each listen it gets better & better. For those who don't know, Mos Def is an MC who combines his deep emotions/feelings and spits them with some ill wordplay. Highly recommended to ANYONE especially those who DON'T like rap music. It'll open your eyes!!!


Artist: Mos Def
Label: Geffen Records
Genre: Pop
Release: Jan 2004   My Rating: 0
Duration: 75:16
Summary: More than a mere rap album, Mos Def's long-awaited "The New Danger" combines hip-hop, blues, soul, and rock in an 18-track package that seeks to transcend convention. In that sense, it shares a similar spirit with Andre 3000's "The Love Below" or Common's "Electric Circus", with mixed results. Mos's reputation has been built on the strength of his lyrical charisma, and songs like "Close Edge," "Grown Man Business," and "Sunshine" show that his skills haven't faded just because he's Emmy-nominated. He's already proven that he can cut more than just street heat--best evinced on the soulful, poetic "Umi Says," a surprise hit from his previous release, 1999's "Black on Both Sides". Yet, the rock- and blues-inspired songs here, while by no means poor, are acquired tastes, given their tendency to noodle--they simply can't compare with Mos's cutting verbal displays. The album's length and sometimes clunky sequencing can make for challenging listening, especially when so many of his more experimental cuts come early on. New fans might find the album's eclecticism intriguing, although older fans will likely be a bit perplexed. "--Oliver Wang"
