Yasiin Bey, better known to you as Mos Def, has a new project called Top 40 Underdog, where the rapper takes a top 40 hit and reworks it. While the series sounds promising, we didn’t really know what to expect until we heard “Niggas Is Poorest.”

“Niggas Is Poorest” is Bey’s reworking of Kanye West and Jay-Z’s repeatable “Niggas In Paris,” and as the title suggests, Bey has a bit of commentary to wage with the original tune. Usually rap parody comes from white dudes with acoustic guitars, so this is a welcome change. Download it below, via Nah Right.
