Mo Betta' Blues...it's a name most of us know from the classic and iconic 1990 Spike Lee film.
But in 2009, it's a moniker dawned by a gifted Brooklyn based
emcee/musician. You might think I'm biased because I work with and know
him personally, but even okayplayer.com agrees with my assessment. Last night he rocked a benefit in L.E.S. at the Delancey for the Xtreme NY Dragon Boat Team Rock and Raffle Fundraiser. It was actually his first performance since the completion of his new album, The Right Time. As usual he did his thing with the Liberation Family. His debut music video, "The Flyist," is set to air on the major networks by the summer. I'm betting he'll be classic and iconic in his own right.
