Casa Bey

Posted on May 10, 2009 by


Recently returning from South America, our boy Mos Def has brought us his newest. Sampled from Brazil’s Banda Black Rio’s track Casa Forte, Mos continues to be hip-hop’s strong home of ingenuity with Casa Bey. The track starts off sounding like any other killer Mos Def track, but gets more and more and interesting as it goes on. I was a fan of True Magic, but this track blows my mind. It’s success is due in large to DJ Preservation and Dante’s own ridiculous production on this song. I’m especially a fan of the beautiful piano outro. This track leaves me extra excited for his new LP, The Ecstatic (June 9, 2009). Cop it here. Hit the jump to listen.
