Mos Def/Macy Gray Perform


Rawkus related news, Mos Def is

doing a show with Macy Gray at the Roseland in New York City,

Feb. 12th. The next Mos Def single will be Umi Says from his critically

acclaimed Black On Both Sides album. The label also has dibs on

Big L's album, which was completed before our hero was fatally

shot in Manhattan. Word has it that producers went back in and

reworked some of the beats so the album will be extra hot. Brand

Nubian's Lord Jamal is searching for a solo deal, and ended up

at red hot Rawkus. Apparently Lord Jamal is seeking the freedom

that the indie labels provide. He is part of Brand Nubian, which

is currently signed to major, Arista.
