words by Eddie STATS Houghton


How often do 2 syllables speak such volumes? This is exactly what it sounds like, a concept mixtape layering Mos Def raps over slabs of classic rocksteady and rub a dub reggae from Scientist, Michael Prophet, Bob Marley and more. It also happens to be brilliant. Max Tannone went the extra mile to make these sound like compositions and not just mashups; selecting, chopping and dubbing the F out of riddims that truly complement Mr. Def’s vocals. The only question is which is the toughest: “Johnny Too Beef” or “Ms. Vampire Booty?” Download it here.
