Now that Yasiin Bey has championed to get people to stop calling him Mos Def he’s focused on the music. And Yasiin has not one solitary ounce of care to give about offending anyone with his latest freestyle over the Chief Keef turned Kanye West “I Don’t Like” beat. And he’s an equal opportunity offender. From tossing around the word cracker and Natzi to going in on how he doesn’t like fake thug rappers, everyone is fair game.
“I Don’t Like” is the latest installment from his Top 40 Underdog series. The last we’d heard from Bey was his rendition of “N—- In Paris” titled “N—- In Poorest,” which actually showcased his lyricism much better than his latest effort. Some of the word choices in “I Don’t Like” is cringe inducing indeed. That’s the point, though. Yasiin has always been a political rapper who raps consciously on how he views the world. If you’re easily offended , you may want to skip this one.
