Video Premiere: Mos Def-Casa Bey

Here is the video for Mos Def's song "Casa Bey" off of his album Ecstatic due in stores June 9th.

Just a heads up, this is not your ordinary rap song or video; so those of you who are limited to seeing half naked women dropping it like its hot or the usual presence of a bottle of Nuvo you might as well skip pressing play. This song is straight up word association and is concept-less and still it is iPod worthy.

I admire Mos Def for his creative mind. He could have easily went down the simple route and added cars and shiny trinkets to his video but he decided to keep it simple yet interesting. Poetry in motion at it's best.

Video rating: A yummy B.
