Get used to the name Yasiin Bey; rapper Mos Def has changed his moniker just in time for 2012. On the first track “N**gas In Poorest” from his “Top 40 Underdog” project, Bey re-imagines Jay-Z and Kanye West’s 2011 club banger “N**gas In Paris.” Yasiin Bey spins a tale that is counter to the materialistic swag found in the original.

 

Listening to “N**gas In Poorest” makes you feel as if you just heard Dap scream “wake up” at the end of “School Daze.”
