Yasiin Bey “Sunshine Screwface” (Dilla Beat)

Hip-Hop

Always nice to see anything pop-up from mister Mos Def, or actually Yasiin Bey as he prefers to be called these days. The live performance of ‘SUNSHINE SCREWFACE‘ was recorded at Radio Nova out in Paris, one of my favorite radio stations for the past 10 years or so. Ok, yes… the beat is from Dilla but let’s not go calling this a Dilla exclusive, this beat has been on one of his infamous beat tapes for years and years and has been used countless times. But hey, Mos on any Dilla beat is enough to get excited!

(Love the guy on the couch next to him. He doesn’t seem too impressed… Ahhh ze french!)
