New Music: Yasiin Gaye (Yasiin Bey & Marvin Gaye) ‘B Stands For Beef’


Amerigo Gazaway gives us another Yasiin Bey (Mos Def)/Marvin Gaye mash-up, this time off of the sequel to his Yasiin Gaye: The Departure (Side 1). Gearing up for his second offering, Yasiin Gaye: The Return (Side Two), the Nashville producer combines Mos Def’s “Beef” with Gaye’s “T Stands For Trouble.” Adding an old-school hip-hop knock to Gaye’s 1972 track, Gazaway creates “B Stands For Beef” featuring Mos’ ever-conscious comparison of shallow squabbles and deep struggles.
