Formerly known as Mos Def, Yasiin Bey has rolled in with a remix video of Kanye West and Jay-Z's "N*****s In Paris," 'N****s In Poorest."

The track, off Bey's Top 40 Underdog series, hit last month and the video dropped on Tuesday in commemoration of the 47th anniversary of Malcolm X's death. In addition to featuring a moving Malcolm X speech clip, Bey highlights the socioeconomic crisis with political visuals and lyrics like "Poor So Hard" and "Ever winter landlord f****in' with my heat again."

This isn't the first time West and Jay-Z's Watch The Throne track has gotten the remix treatment. In a lighter spirit, a quirky mashup of Woody Allen's "Midnight In Paris" and the song was thrown together for "N****s In Paris At Midnight," which combines the original track, Owen Wilson, and literary figures who know how to break it down.
