The end of Mos Def is nearly here with ‘December 99th’.

Earlier this year Yasiin Bey announced that he was retiring from acting and releasing music. Due to the stress of his then legal troubles in South Africa, the former Mos Def made it clear that he was done. However, after announcing that he would be performing in the States one final time, Yasiin revealed he was releasing three final projects. One, a long awaited collaboration with Mannie Fresh titled As Promised, a solo effort in Negus In Natural Person and December 99th, a collaboration with producer Ferrari Sheppard.

Originally scheduled to be released on December 9th, December 99th instead arrives today. The 10-track project was produced in full by Sheppard and can be streamed via TIDAL below. For non-subscribers and subscribers alike, you can hear “Blade In The Pocket” as well.
