Mos Def - Sunshine
Buy The New Danger

Sunshine is a rare gem in the mess that is The New Danger. Sunshine is Mos like you've heard him before kicking nice rhymes over a sweet beat, this team courtesy Kanye West. I like the New Danger, but it seems like Mos or maybe his record label scraped together whatever tracks they could find to get something out. It doesn't quite feel like a complete album. There is some really good stuff on here with the straight up hip hop tracks like Sunshine and Close Edge and the Black Jack Johnson rock tracks like Zimzallabim. But then there is totally random garbage like The Rapeover, which is Mos over Jay-Z's Takeover beat. Overall this is good stuff, but it could've been better. Sunshine is one of the better moments on this album.
