Mos Def and Mannie Fresh Drop New Track, 'Black Jesus'

Yasiin Bey, formerly known as Mos Def, has finally released a song from his collaboration with certified hip-hop hit-producer, Mannie Fresh.

Called ‘Black Jesus’, and appropriately released on Easter, the track is the first from the mysteriously titled album OMFGOD.

Fresh has made his name as one half of the duo Big Tymers, as well as for producing hits like ‘Go DJ’ for Lil Wayne.

It’s a surprising direction for Mos Def, who has usually drawn praise for his conscious lyrics and activist work, but it’s hard to see this project with a proven beat-maker falling flat.

Listen to the track here:

The pair have also released a series of videos focused on the recording of the album – the one below showcases a diverse selection of songs worth checking out (especially the track starting from 1:45)
