yo Rza pump the track

So I came across this Mos Def track on fluxblog where he rocks over the Liquid Swords beat. His verses are pretty solid, but I don't know if I'm sold on this song as a whole. The mushmouthed intro is annoying, since when is Mos getting stained? His choruses are just mumbled/sung reworkings of the Liquid Swords chorus, although I do really like when he starts whistling over the beat at the end. I feel like a schmuck trashing Mos' reworking of the song when I basically praised Jim Jones' freestyle over it, but come on Mos, I hold you up to a higher standard than the Capo.

Uff. Horrible. I'm not sure how Mos Def was able to decide that that track shouldn't be destroyed after playing it back in the studio.
