so i guess they are the most deaf socks.
anyways. nothing about mos def. i got a bag of socks once in japan.. (cause i had none, ok?) from what i would call a “dollar store”.. and they are my favorite socks of all times. just so damn comfortable. they are labeled as “champion” brand socks. but they are not. i’ve even talked to a champion rep about these things. so, thats about it.. japan budget knock off socks.. i love ’em..
a) Marx: I don’t think that your post is actually related. However, after reading them both I was struck by the idea that Mos Def should make a movie where he comes to Japan and gets things back on track. He could also help out Japanese hip-hop artists [“Now Ketsumeishi… あのさくらと呼んだ曲は全然「GANSTA」じゃねえ…”]. It’s just an idea.
b) Mos Def should receive a pair.
c) ‘The New Danger’ was disappointing. I still listen to the older stuff.
I agree with Ian! Mos should make a brandnew and damn hot album. And it is on you, to provide the motherfucker with def socks. Cause when i’m goin’ to buy that new shit at my favorite german vinyl-store, I wanne also get some gratis Mos Def socks besides.
