Video: Mos Def’s – Casa Bey

by Winston "Stone" Ford

Is it me, but is this song just a little off?

Mos Def – “Casa Bey” – The Ecstatic – 6.9.09

I don’t know why, but I’m not getting into Mos Def’s new joint, Casa Bey. I thought it was a freestyle at first, and I was tempted to let it pass, but once I saw that an actual video dropped, I started to scratch my head. 

Is he rapping over a beat? An instrumental? I’m confused. 

I think that Mos has lost his focus lately. I do believe that he has another great album in him, but he really needs to find the right production team to get his sound just right. What do y’all think?

The Estatic is hopefully still dropping on June 9th.
