Mos Def Black on Both Sides Dropped 20 Years Ago

Mos Def is one of the illest to ever touch the mic. Throughout his career that spans well over 20 years, Mos Def only dropped four solo albums. He have been on countless singles, compilation projects and collaborated on a couple. Whenever you hear him spit, you already know you’re getting some gritty, dope lyrics. Mos Def collaborated with Talib Kweli to form Black Star in 1998 and they released their classic album. The following year, Mos Def released his debut, solo album Black on Both Sides. If you’re familiar with hip hop, then you know that Rawkus Records put out nothing but pure music. The first single for Black on Both Sides was Ms. Fat Booty. The single was released about two before the album was released. Ms. Fat Booty didn’t move a lot of records, but it was well respected.

Ms. Fat Booty have been put on several peoples list as one of the dopest records from the 90s. The follow-up single was called Umi Says and Mos Def released two videos for the track. The first one was a more traditional hip hop video, but the other featured Nike and the Jordan Brand. Michael Jordan and other guys appeared in the Much Respect video for the release of the Air Jordan XVI. Black on Both Sides has its share of bangers on it and gets a lot of play twenty years later. Black on Both Sides almost reached platinum status. The only major features on the album were Q-Tip, Talib Kweli and Busta Rhymes.
