Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) shares new track, 'Dec 99th - N.A.W.', produced by Ferrari Sheppard and recorded in Cape Town on May 5, 2016.
Early Friday morning a new track titled “Dec. 99th – N.A.W.” appeared on Bey and Ferrari Sheppard‘s A Country Called Earth platform. According to ACCE, the song was recorded Thursday at D Planet Studios in Cape Town. Sheppard is actually the song’s producer (his production debut), and the N.A.W. presumably stands for needs and wants. “Fuck what you like, needs and wants, you got needs and wants / needs and wants” Bey sings over Sheppard’s droning production. “I hope you got what you need and that you need what you waaaaaant” the rapper continues to chant.
