Just Taste This: “The Light Is Not Afraid of the Dark”-Mos Def

There was a woman who ran a soul food joint I used to frequent, and one day she came up with a new recipe for chicken wings. My friend and I didn’t buy any, but she felt that they were so good she said to us, “I just want somebody to taste this. Just taste it, baby.” We did, and those wings were magnificent. Every now and then, I hear something that I just want people to taste. It might be new, it might be old, it might be just relatively unappreciated. Whatever it is, I just want you to hear it. I know that most of my writing here has been long-form, but in between I’m going to just start sharing thins that I think you should taste. I’m not even saying it’s the greatest song ever…but it was Yasiin Bey when he was still Mos Def, you know? And since Black on Both Sides is one of the best hip hop albums of all time by anyone anywhere ever…well, you can’t blame me for wanting to get close to that, can you? This is produced by Kanyeezy.  Shout out to Okayplayer.
