black jesus (1)

It seems like Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) only surfaces from his musical hibernation every few months to drop a guest verse or a freestyle, but it’s been a while — almost two years, in fact, when Black Star released “You Already Knew” — since we’ve heard a proper new record. This painful wait comes to an end this Easter Sunday as the Brooklyn wordsworth debuts the aptly-titled “Black Jesus,” the first single from his upcoming collaborative project with Mannie Fresh, OMFGODBKNOLA (decoding not needed). It’s safe to say it’ll yield some pretty interesting songs.

Listen to “Black Jesus” after the jump…
