Yasiin Bey, the artist formerly known as Mos Def, remixes “N*ggas In Paris” as part of his Top 40 Underdog series where he will remake the top 40 records.
Back in 2004 he remade Jay-Z’s “The Takeover” as a protest song against the recording industry, “The Rape Over.” But it was removed from copies of The New Danger.
“N*ggas In Poorest” finds Bey in similar form, twisting the anthem of excess into a cold dose of reality. (props HighSnobiety)
