Tune Up

Ski feat. Mos Def-Taxi from Creative Control on Vimeo.

Mos Def is all the way back.

As an addition - this video was pulled from Dame Dash's latest project, creativecontrol.tv. I highly, highly recommend poking around this site a bit. The Ski beatz under shows, Mos Def's channel, the Sessions @ DD172. I've never thought Dame Dash was a visionary by any means, more business man than anything. But he's founded this gallery/studio DD172 and this website to go along side it. It's like hip hop is having its hippy, psychedelic exploration period, but in the year 2009 with Dame Dash at the center, trying to make something a little more substantial and forward looking. It's an interesting thing, he's really just trying to get people together and get them to make their music and generate ideas. Mos Def is clearly perfect for this as it seems he has rhythm, verses, beats and talent coming out of every pore. Plus it seems getting high on camera is heavily encouraged.

Another gem from Creative + Control
