Mos Def and Damon Dash Bring Out Death!

Mos Def continues to make moves with yet another interesting side project with Damon Dash. Besides collaborating on the highly anticipated Blakroc project with Damon Dash, The Black Keys and a notable list of rappers (Jim Jones, Q-Tip, Raekwon, RZA, etc.), Mos will now embark on a documentary about Death. And no, I’m not talking about the kind of “death” we all hate so much. But I am talking about the obscure, all Black, proto-punk band that formed in 1971. You’re gonna fuckin’ love their shit!

Mos Def told Filter:

“It’s going to be great. These dudes were pre-Sex Pistols, pre-Bad Brains, pre-all that shit, and nobody knows them. I don’t understand how the whole world could forget them.”

I can’t believe I never heard of these guys until now! After listening to their ripping tunes, Death puts out some great shit any rock n’ roll connoisseur can appreciate.
