This is a little remix or interpretation by Dante Smith aka Mos Def or Yasin Bey of Jay-Z and Kayne’s “N***** in Paris”.  Leave it to Mos Def to provide some insightful thought on a highly popular song.  We have seen many things on Facebook and Twitter about how music is moving away from song with meaningful lyrics to lyrics aiming to sell the most records and make the money.  Eminem said it best in his track “Syllables“.  In this song Em says “It is not about lyrics anymore, its about a hot beat and a catchy hook”.  That is very true if you look at most of the music out today, but people can also argue that the beats and hooks are the most creative they have ever been.  Who knows for sure? Enjoy the video and check out Eminem’s “Syllables” here which is actually a pretty under rated song.
