We pulled back the blinds on a quickie peek at Mos Def's "History" video not too long ago. Now we have the finished body of work. The Coodie-and-Chike directed clip is a reunion of sorts between Def and his longtime partner in rhyme, Talib Kweli.
Filmed in classic, lush black and white, the videp features naturalistic performances from Mos and Talib as they make their way through one of the best songs on Def's slept-on album, The Ecstatic. In a nice touch, the video also features a recurring trope of a digital camera displaying classic snaps of Kweli and Mos' group, Black Star, in action.
Watch "History" now.
