CONTROVERSIAL SONG pulled from MOS DEF'S ALBUM
Future editions of Mos Def's latest album, The New Danger, will not contain the controversial song, "Rape Over," which features the same Kanye West-produced track as Jay-Z's hit, "The Takeover," from the his 2001 album, The Blueprint. SOHH.com reports that the song was pulled because on the song Mos Def raps about "quasi homosexuals" and a "tall Israeli running this rap shit."
The reference to a tall Israeli running rap music alludes to Lyor Cohen, the chairman of the Warner Music Group who was formerly chairman of the Island Def Jam Music Group.
The New Danger is the follow up to Mos Def's 1999 gold-certified debut, Black On Both Sides.
