Happy Easter folk. The man formerly known as Mos Def, and the legendary Mannie Fresh have a collaborative LP coming out soon, titled OMFGOD–which is what I’m sure most of us will be saying to our colleagues after hearing it–and today we’re blessed to have the first single from it. It’s quite fascinating to listen to the man behind a decade of southern hits–specifically of the NOLA variety–and one of the pioneers of New York boom-bap rap scene come together and create a seamless mash-up of the two styles. Imagine an entire album of this. While most people are anticipating Big Sean, Pusha T & Kid Cudi’s upcoming albums–and rightfully so–OMFGOD is sure to be one of the best G.O.O.D. Music releases of late. 2013 is looking up, thus far.
