    Man!

    I love the Dead Prez Hiphop beat so much with the slow wobbly bass. I never ever tire of hearing it.

    So far I've got the Dead Prez version, the Prof Green one of his mixtape, and the Diplo / MIA one off their mixtape.

    Anyone know of / got any more versions or remixes?

    Your spot on D, i never get tired of listening to it.

    Theres the 2 remixes on Krafty Kuts' 'These Are The Breaks' (Vol 2 i think). Once chilled out almost loungy and the other is speeded up and snappier.

    Still what a SICK tune :rasta:

    That bassline is top but I think the lyrics on the whole of that album are more worth talking about. Love their whole "down with whitey/the man" attitude. Mind Sex is a welcome release from the political bashing. But yeah, love it.

    WORDism!

    & you got the bit at the end (2/3 - end) where it breaks down & then rebuilds without vocals.

    Do it!

    & promise me u'll play it @ Brknk;)

    Like the production, but hate everything else about the song. Not really a Dead Prez fan. Mind Sex is a goot song however
