Mos Def Performs “Quiet Dog Bite Hard” While Accompanying Himself on Drums

In case you were wondering whether or not there’s anything the mighty Mos Def can’t do—in addition to sounding perfect over reggae dub instrumentals—here he is a couple nights ago on the BBC talk show Later with Jools Holland performing the burner “Quiet Dog Bite Hard” from his most recent, The Ecstatic, while playing his own drums. And sure, he’s got some help from a DJ, but think about the crazy hand-eye-mouth-brain co-ordination this requires. It’d be like blogging, listening to Mos Def and riding a bike all at once, which is definitely impossible. (HipHopDX)
