Mos Def and Talib Kweli: History

I'm not usually into R'n'B/ hip hop/ rap, but this song has been getting some air time and I kinda like it. Mos Def has kind of dropped off the musical radar since he went into acting; he was mostly seen guesting on songs by Gorillaz (most recently Stylo) in-between acting jobs like in Michel Gondry's Be Kind Rewind and appearing in TV shows like House. But here he is in a very likeable tune that's a little bit old-school, very accessible and very summery. It makes you think of having drinks on a beach somewhere sunny.
