Yeah MosDub is so great, that was like the soundtrack for my summer a few years ago. Def's vocals blend so well with the old school reggae and dub beats.

And as far as I know it didn't have any input from Mos Def, it was all made by a guy named Max Tannone. You can listen or download the whole thing for free on his blog.

Rappers screaming all in our ears like we're deaf
Tempt me, do a number on the label
Eat up all their MC's and drink 'em under the table

UB 40 does a great cover of the Allman Brothers' classic Midnight Rider on their new album.

There are two types of music: the first type is the blues and the second type is all the other stuff.
