Saturday Video Shout-Out: Mos Def

This song never gets old. Mos Def's Umi Says stays in my rotation.

Any music to shout out today?

To me, all of his other music is chasing this song. One of the best ever.

Res's first CD was in heavy rotation when I bought it. Have you checked out her new one? It's called Black.Girls.Rock! You can download it from her website.
