In two minutes fifteen seconds, Mos squashes all hip-hop beef. How? By breaking down what real beef is. Over a hypnotic head-nodder of a beat, he lists "Mrs. Wallace still don't know who shot Biggie" and "the cocaine and AIDS epidemics" as a few examples of what's really real. On the flip, he's joined by new-jack Cassidy on the dark Swizz Beats-produced "Monster Music," a loving ode to the complexity of living in the ghetto.
