Kanye and Mos Def showed up at Lupe Fiasco’s Blue Note show on Saturday and spit a dope 7 minute freestyle over some Dilla instrumentals, backed by the Robert Glasper Experiment. Head here for the full 30 minute track. Give these two credit, a lot of rappers won’t freestyle without a blackberry these days (via LupE.N.D Blog & All The Way Live).
and i shine and glow / even in the dark, stay smart, stay sharp
as a hard play by a musician, in this position
feel blessed to make the whole world listen
and just glisten without even trying / even when I die, I won’t stay dead
and its straight off the head / and its straight out the lungs
lookin fly fresh / old man, so young
