Mos Def, “Casa Bey”
An astute friend of mine took me to task for liking the Ceelo Green video I posted this morning, saying that the video was basically crap. So I feel the need to clarify that it was the song that I found great, not the video. That video is your typical, run-of-the-mill motion graphic, circa 2008. It appears that no thought was put into the creation of that video, other than to think “We want the words “FUCK YOU!” to be huge!”
Then that same astute friend shared the above video for the song “Casa Bey,” by Mos Def, most famous for his appearance in Stuff White People Like. Now this is a video I can get behind. Directed by Coodie & Chike.
