Mos Def – Umi Says

This is one of my favourite hip hip tracks. I can remember recording it onto a cassette from the radio and being utterly beguiled by it’s mellow, hypnotic sounds. Still to this day if I am feeling a little agitated (which is more often than I would like) it is one of the first tracks I think of to put me back on an even keel.

I have been meaning to post it for ages but especially since posting Mos Def a few weeks back. It is taken from his excellent 1999 debut album Black on Both Sides.
