Do the mathematics + get down to hear one of hip-hop's greatest

"...every syllable is like another percussion instrument boosting that head-nod factor by 10."

- Pitchfork
Mos Def is hip-hop royalty. After featuring with the likes of De La Soul, he worked with Rawkus Records in the underground hip-hop scene. With his Afrocentric styling and politically conscious lyrics, you should file his body of work next to the likes of the Native Tongues crew. We’re talking A Tribe Called Quest and Jungle Brothers or the new school of Outkast and The Roots. His album, Black on Both Sides, is a cult classic, bringing smooth jams and wicked flow to the scene. Get ready to shake your Ms. Fat Booty as much as possible. General admission, standing. Over 18s only.
