Black on Both Sides is the debut studio album by American rapper Mos Def, released on October 12, 1999 by Rawkus and Priority Records. Prior to its recording, Mos Def had collaborated with Talib Kweli for the album Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star in 1998, which raised high expectations for a solo effort by the former. Black on Both Sides features an emphasis on live instrumentation and socially conscious lyrics.

But Mos Def will live on in our hearts as the guy who made Ms. Fat Booty and Umi Says. The guy who straddled the line between stone cold lyricist and master of pulchritude. He was the best of all worlds, it seemed. There is only one Black Star album, but there’s a reason that fans have been begging for a follow-up for nearly 20 years: Yasiin Bey and Talib Kweli made history. The two Brooklyn MCs had already shown a magical chemistry with Fortified Live from Rawkus Records’ Soundbombing compilation and put their solo endeavors on hold to collaborate on Black Star.

When I saw Mos Def's "Umi Says's" rolling up the screen, I knew that had to be the track. I was never big on Mos Def, but this track really got my attention. The first part of the song really fits the theme for the movie "One Week".

Mos Def. Umi says табулатуры. This one is a lot more accurate.

If anyone cares to figure out the other variations please send them to me and/or post a correction. Thanks to Ezbenny for that info.
