    Mos Def + Aretha Franklin - One Step Ahead [blend]

    This is a blend I created as a hip hop tribute to the Queen Of Soul, Aretha Franklin. For those who don't already know, producer Ayatollah originally sampled Aretha Franklin's "One Step Ahead" to create the beat for Mos Def's "Ms Fat Booty". For Aretha's verses, I blended it over Ayatollah's...
