You Mos Def-initely Need Some Hip-Hop To End This #TBT!

Songwriter, hip-hop artist, occasional acting star and social activist Mos Def released this devastatingly talented number back in 1999 as a B-side on his first album Black on Both Sides.

‘Mathematics’ is artistically incredible. Rhyming statistics sequentially about some very serious topics such as racial discrimination is one skill, but being able to mould it into a cohesive tune with a beautiful flow is frankly astonishing. I remember first listening to it over and over again just to try and enjoy the intelligence of each verse. A must-hear for your TBT.
