Mos Def tracks keep coming out long after the release of The Ecstatic. We've given our readers a taste of tracks like "24 Hour Karate School" and, more recently, "White Drapes." This track, called "The Tournament" features the Mighty Mos on a track that was left off of his latest album, which is nominated for a Grammy Award. In this track, Mos raps over a sparse drum break that also uses a sample from "Theme from the Godfather" by the Professionals that recently got chopped up by the RZA on "Black Mozart" off of Raekwon's latest album.
