h2o mp3: New World Water: Mos Def

Here’s one for World Water Day on Sunday. The music of hip hop artist Mos Def is often politically charged and socially aware, and certainly earns its “parental advisory” designation. New World Water was recorded in 1999, so that places him well ahead of many of the “opinion leaders” too. (You might have seen the full lyrics recently on Aguanomics, here.)

Lyrics:

Tell your crew use the H2 in wise amounts since
it’s the New World Water; and every drop counts
You can laugh and take it as a joke if you wanna
But it don’t rain for four weeks some summers
And it’s about to get real wild in the half
You be buying Evian just to take a fuckin bath
