Gilles interviews Mos Def on BBC Radio 1

Mos Def with Gilles Peterson

Special 45 min extended interview with Mos Def as broadcast last night on Gilles’ Radio 1 show. GP is away so the man like Ross Allen was standing in and a fine deputy he was too. Impeccable selection from him as always. Click HERE and bump the entire show on the iplayer OR just check the Mos Def feature below. Some chat, some new bits off ‘The Ecstatic’, some classic material from the golden Rawkus era (Hi-Tek, Shawn J Period and co. – WHUT!!) and a whole lot more.
