Michael Sterling Eaton feat. Mos Def – “White Drapes”

I HAD to post this.  TOO ill.  You might remember I posted about our friend Michael Sterling Eaton a while back regarding his film Friday the 13th with Mos Def and The Cool Kids.  Well it appears that he has parlayed that into a feature from Mos and The Cool Kids on his upcoming album The Mictape Vol. 1.  The album also features music Curren$y, Ernie Gaines, Scoop Deville, Stalley and many more.  This is the first offering from the project.  The song is called “White Drapes” and it features Mos going in on one long verse and really sounding like a fresh MC again.  Be on the look out for The Mictape Vol. 1 coming soon.

Michael Sterling Eaton’s Friday the 13th

FRIDAY THE 13th: A NIGHT WITH THE COOL KIDS and MOS DEF from Creative Control on Vimeo.

It’s always cool to see an old friend doing some really cool stuff.  I met Michael almost 10 years ago now through a mutual friend and it’s been cool to hear about and see his path as he found his calling.  Michael works on many photo and video projects including national campaigns for Billabong.  Check out his site here. He’s working on this short film that features Mos Def and many of you probably know that Mos is one of my all time lyrical idols.  I’m really happy to see this project in the works and I hope everyone checks it out when it drops.
