In January, Yasiin Bey, fka Mos Def, announced that he’d be releasing one more record before retiring from the world of music and film. The MC, who’s currently dealing with legal troubles in South Africa, looks to be steadily making his way toward that final album, releasing new material every couple of weeks.
Bey gave us “N.A.W.” in May, followed by “Dec 99th – Tall Sleeves” earlier this month. Now, he’s sharing “Dec 99th – Local Time,” a brooding number lined with murky bass. “The local time is always now,” its SoundCloud description reads. “Forever is a current event.” Much like “Tall Sleeves”, this latest cut was produced by Ferrari Sheppard.
