Poor So Hard

Yasiin Bey, aka Mos Def is an MC of the highest caliber, and has never shied away from speaking his mind regarding social issues – and using the very genre he’s mastered as the medium to spread his message. His last revision of Jay-Z’s “The Takeover” which he dubbed “The Rape Over” called out the rap industry and the direction it has been headed in, catering to the interests of corporations versus the people. Now Yasiin brings us, “Niggas in Poorest” and challenges us to not “get caught up in no throne” as he speaks about the state of our economy, our hunger for money and material goods, a lack of respect for human life, the effects of bad food on our health, and the influence all of this has on our youth.  Further, Yasiin, reminds us we can’t put our faith in men – God remains at the helm of this life and that’s all we can have faith in.

Listen and learn y’all.
