Mannie Fresh Unleashes a New Yasiin Bey Track

Mannie Fresh, arguably one of hip hop’s most influential producers, took time to link up with Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest) and Frannie Kelly in Washington, D.C. for their Microphone Check series on NPR. Mannie tackled various topics like Lil Wayne’s “Lollipop,” the origins of New Orleans Bounce music, and more. He then proceeded to drop some new Mos Def Yasiin Bey shit at the 36:30 minute mark that is mega rewind-worthy. To top it all off, Mannie played a 20-minute DJ set featuring everything from Kenny Chesney to Kanye West.
