Me gusta Mos Def desde hace tiempo y me gustó mucho el álbum Black Star, así que esperaba con ganas este. Escuché este álbum durante varios días debido a otras cosas, pero aún así fue una experiencia interesante.

In keeping with his goal of restoring hip-hop's sociopolitical consciousness, Def's lyrics are as intelligent and thoughtfully crafted as one would expect, but he doesn't stop there - he sings quite passably on several tracks, plays live instruments on others (including bass, drums, congas, vibraphone, and keyboards), and even collaborates on a string arrangement. Its ambition and execution rank it as one of the best albums of 1999, and it consolidates Mos Def's position as one of hip-hop's brightest hopes entering the 21st century. The lyrics would seem to have chafed with higher-placed executives, who made Mos take the song off of later releases of the album, supposedly for "sample clearance issues".

Tracks that stand out in particular are 'New World Water', 'Speed Law','Love' and 'Fear not of man'. Merging old-school bravado with new-school poetics, Mos Def spouts incisive Afrocentric reality that takes all sides into account. In 2004, he hosted the MOBO awards in London, after the original presenter, Pharrell Williams pulled out at the last minute. Filled with tracks raving about his hometown, Brooklyn and his love for Hip-Hop, Black on Both Sides also deals with racial profiling of Black men in America, with the track Mr Nigga. The main reference points are pretty much the same - old-school rap, which allows for a sense of playfulness as well as history, and the native tongues posse's fascination with jazz, both for its sophistication and cultural heritage.

He met them all with Black On Both Sides, a record every bit as dazzling and visionary as Black Star. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. A throwback to the sophisticated heyday of the Native Tongues Posse, with extra poignancy and a bracing Busta Rhymes cameo to boot. he met them all with black on both sides, a record every bit as dazzling and visionary as black star.Mos Def is projected to release his last solo album on Geffen Records, The Undeniable Free Flaco in early 2006. Continuing with the Respect The Classics campaign, UMe will be reissuing this classic album back on vinyl for the first time in over 10 years. Por lo demás, decir que el envío sin duda ha sido espectacular por parte de RAREWAVES USA y el CD llegó rápido y en perfecto estado. As a solo artist he has released the albums Black on Both Sides in 1999, The New Danger in 2004, True Magic in 2006 and The Ecstatic in 2009. He has also been a musical guest and participated in many skits on Comedy Central's Chappelle's Show.
