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.
