Rapper Mos Def has been leaking a lot of tracks lately and has been touring with Rock the Bells over the past few months. There’s been talks about a brand new album to follow up True Magic, but nothing that’s been confirmed yet. For now, check out what could be a brand new single, entitled “The Glowing.”

It looks like anyone who went to a show this weekend was mos def getting their monies worth. Kanye killed it at the closing of the infamous Lollapalooza festival in Chicago. Playing to a home crowd never did anyone any harm and after delivering track after track from his three offerings, Kanye had the crowd paying homage to the ‘lady who drove him to Chicago when he was only three’…his late Momma.
While on the NY leg of the Rock the Bells event out at Jones Beach, crowds were whipped into a frenzy as artist after artist hit the stage delivering classic after classic. Slick Rick, MOP, ATCQ, DJ Premier, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Busta Rhymes were all in attendance plus a whole lot more. But what really got the crowd going was when Jay Z appeared on stage to accompany Nas for Black Republicans. Good times to be had by all, what Summer is all about really.
Though this is old news to most, rap duo Kidz in the Hall was involved in an altercation the other night in Tempe, Arizona. The duo has been picking up major recognition recently due to their new album, The In Crowd. The album features Travis McCoy, Estelle and Big Pooh among others, and the infectious and oft-remixed “Drivin’ Down the Block.” According to details that have emerged thus far, Double O was grabbed by police and thrown to the ground by several bouncers and security guards. At that point, Double O was supposedly kicked and punched as he laid on the ground. Then, Naledge, the other half of the duo, tried to intervene and got arrested. Soon after, Double O was arrested as well. Also according to emerged details, Double O was hospitalized after the incident and the duo missed their scheduled stop with Rock the Bells in Maryland. More details to emerge soon, and we’ll keep you posted. Regardless, best wishes to the Kidz and I hope they’re both doing okay and are back on the road with the Rock the Bells crew.
