    Thumbs up Mos Def - Black on Both Sides



    1. Fear Not Of Man
    2. Hip Hop
    3. Love
    4. Ms. Fat Booty
    5. Speed Law
    6. Do It Now (featuring Busta Rhymes)
    7. Got
    8. Umi Says
    9. New World Water
    10. Rock 'N' Roll
    11. Know That (featuring Talib Kweli)
    12. Climb (featuring Vinia Mojica)
    13. Brooklyn
    14. Habitat
    15. Mr. Nigga (featuring Q-Tip)
    16. Mathematics
    17. May-December

    I don't know why there is no thread for this, I thought it was pretty much considered a classic. Pretty much every track is sick except for Climb, Umi Says and May-December, but that isn't really a track. So, post your opinions and reviews.

    Well, that's your opinion, but I think it is pretty boring and annoying.

    I fucking love this album, but Mos has pissed me off by following it up with such a weak album like New Danger, True Magic is ok but he can do so much better.

    Black on both sides I feel delivers the kind of music I want to hear in hip hop, it's informative, diverse and above all entertaining.

    Lyrics 9/10
    Production 8/10
    Overall 8/10

    Yeah, he has a lot of talent. He has sick lyrics, flow and beats, which is pretty rare. I don't know why he doesn't release more albums.

    maybe better than "BlackStar" just cause the concepts and beats are better except Respiration is better than anything on this IMO
