Arcade Music.

Inspired by Jean-Michel Basquiat and the world’s recent events, Yasiin Bey illustrates his thoughts on this new recording fresh out the studio. Says Yasiin:

Good tidings in this season of the lion. Black August action. Peace. Happy Wednesday morning. In commemoration of the birth week of one Marcus Garvey, herein is an arrangement of visuals for the sonic composition “Basquiat Ghostwriter”, directed and produced by A Country Called Earth. Special thanks to I. Attallihi, J. Cuba and S. bin Sharifu.

FREE THE LAND. We are already in outer space. The local time is always now. Free Shmurda. If you are reading this, you are already reading. Weappreciateyuh.Negus. Eternal pedigree. Noble Empire. So real. Surreal.

L T P F J. peace.

– Yasiin Bey

  • Donn

    What the hell. Where’s Kanye. Give this nigga a beat. Sound like some kid at your high school who said listen to my shit lol

  • the nature boy

    I really really miss Might Mighty Mos Def.
    and from now on I will refer to waka flaka as W.F. Flame.

  • Sommo

    THIS IS TRASH ! I DONT CARE IF HE’S A LEGEND. DA$H JUST DROPPED A MIXTAPE AND YOU STILL DON’T POST IT RR . STOP WAITING FOR THE INDUSTRY TO CO-SIGN HIM AND DO IT YOURSELF.

    • Azine

      WHY DON’T YOU EMPOWER YOURSELF AND DO IT YOURSELF?!

      • Sommo

        So if you go to a restaurant and get bad service, do you tell the manager about it or open up a restaurant to”empower yourself?” Shut the fuck up forever .

        • Azine

          Okay, you obviously didn’t get the joke, nor the reference.. So I’m just gonna leave it there.

  • Sonic

    After I listened to the song I was let down greatly and as I listened again and again the letdown only increased. Like the saying goes, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. In light of that theme, let me just state that Mos Def’s trash is most definitely not my treasure.

    I like acid and psychedelic music but this thing right here is ass. Not because is intricate , on a diferent timing, asimetric or because is touching social subjects is gonna be good , get ya shit together. Not even the crazyiest music from the 60¨s go this loco

  • el jim chapo guzman
