Yasiin Gaye

On my walk this morning I was particularly enjoying “Big Brother Beat” by De La Soul featuring Yasiin Bey (Mos Def at the time). When I got back home, I did a quick search to see if he had any new music out, and look what I found! Not a new album as such, but two amazing mashups, under the overall heading of “Yasiin Gaye”. Mixed by Amerigo Gazaway, they’re a perfect fusion of hip-hop and soul, mixing Bey’s vocals with the music of Marvin Gaye. For free! Go grab them now — they’re lush.
