Ridiculous Cipher: De La Soul + Mos Def + + Nas (w/Kanye West, Consequence, Damon Albarn and more...)

It's been a while since I've seen a live video that got me stirred up out of my chair like this one right here. The show went down in London, and from the thirteen-minute-long clip I just saw, I'm sure it was a crowd pleaser of the finest caliber. Some key highlights:

  • Trugoy 'n Posdnuos back at it!
  • kickin' dirty rhymes like the Ruthless days
  • Green Lantern pickin' classics from the crates
  • Mos Def spittin' Talib Kweli's verse from "Definition"
  • Nas, out of nowhere, droppin' "Made You Look", "Nas is Like", "Halftime" & "Represent"
  • Mos returns for a quick "Ms. Fat Booty" rendition
Meanwhile, Kanye West was strolling around lookin' like the Robot Dancing Man from Chappelle's Show. LOL... How often do we get to see this kinda sh*t? Not enough...

Still, it's the reason why...
