'I Forgot' Friday: Ms. Fat Booty by Mos Def

I forgot to post a throwback yesterday! So here is the video I would have shared with ya’ll had I not been slacking.

Usually I am the first person to complain about how most rappers only talk about big butts and such but I’m going to give Mos Def a pass because this man is such a good rapper. Only he can turn a song about seeing a girl with a fat booty into a work of art. Mos has such a way with words and he is such a storyteller and if you really listen to the words of the song the story that he is telling is actually quite entertaining. So please watch, enjoy & reminisce.


  1. I love visiting your blog. I always find some cool stuff when I stop by. Ms. Fat Booty is one of my favorite Mos Def songs. I like how he made a song about a woman's ass but it was tongue and cheek not explicit. He really flexed his story telling ablility on this one. Great pick!


  2. I was thinking the same thing Moet with Medusa lol! You do a really good job with your posts Dee, like you actually put some thought into what you put up here and I love it.

    Ms. Fat Booty is a really amazing song, the first few times I heard it years ago I didn't really listen to the words but when I actually listened to what Mos Def was saying like you said, I found that the story was definitely present! Nice choice :)

    yeah this joint go hard. i'm not a big mos def fan but you have to give credit where credit is due. i'm pretty sure he coined the phrase "ass so big you can see it from the front" which i use from time to time lol

  4. @Moet, Thank you so much! I'm glad you like it :) I love visiting your blog too, you are such an inspirational writer! And yes, this song is one of my favorites from Mos Def too and you took the words right out of my mouth with the rest of your comment!

    @Tayo.O, Thank you too so so so so soooo much! And yeah it took me a couple listens to really appreciate what he was saying in the song lol

    @Khalil, yup I'm pretty sure he did lol!

    Thanks for the comments :)

  5. love it! my first time hearing this song (so sad i know!) but i really like it!
