Yasiin Bey – “I Don’t Like” (Chief Keef cover)
Man! I don’t think I’ve ever heard Yasiin Bey (a.k.a Mos Def) like this before! But absolutely love it!
“Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like” is without a doubt one of the biggest rap tunes of the year, having exploded as a viral hit before getting a monstrous remix from the G.O.O.D. Music crew. While it may arguably have come a few months too late, major player Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) has now weighed in with some verses of his own to let us know exactly what it is he doesn’t like.
While the teenaged Keef went off about snitches and phonies, Bey’s snarly attack on the Young Chop beat homes in on heavier targets. Among his hates, he calls out white supremacists, the faulty banking system, lying politicians, America’s disproportionate distribution of wealth, gang violence, “wacky weaves,” wasted time, “nazi police,” and legal crime.” By Gregory Adams for exclaim.ca
