Those who celebrated Easter on Sunday, might be maxed out on churchin’ and sick of uncomfortable clothes and long services, but we have one more Hymn for you. Now, before you go ahead and click the back button faster than a kid running through a basket of Jelly beans, understand that this Black Jesus is delivered by Mannie Fresh and Yasiin Bey (a.k.a Mos Def). Fresh, known for his opulent, energetic production, switches gears on Jesus, providing Bey with a more minimalist effort, centered around a church choir sample. While the G.O.O.D Music emcee works under an unfamiliar alias, he still delivers the goods, gracing the track with an interesting religious spin and abstract style. If you like the sound of Black Jesus, there will be plenty more on their forthcoming LP, OMFGOD.
