Yasiin Bey Keeps It Real With ‘Poorest’

I would be lying if I sat up here and tried to deny that Jay-Z and Kanye West's "Ni--as In Paris" isn't my jam, because it totally is. But I like the track for the beat and music, not necessarily for the lyrical content, which I cannot relate to. I mean I'm still trying to figure out who or what the hell a Margiela is. However, what I can relate to is Mos Def Yasiin Bey's clever spin on the song with his version, "Ni--as In Poorest." Bey delivers the real on wax and now in the video, which dropped this week. He raps into a rather unique mic with photos illustrating his lyrics flashing on the screen. Watching this no-budget affair was more enjoyable than viewing The Throne's big-budget bust. [H/T: OKP]
