My umi says it’s soul sunday

In one intoxicating appraisal of his mother’s creative influence, Mos Def’s Umi Says heels, feels and unifies. This soulful, blue track is a testimony to what hip hop can be at its best: contemplative, intimate and visionary. With lyrics like ‘Shine your light for the world to see’, Mos sings of freedom, solace and hope.
