Earlier we got a glimpse at Mos Def performing a new song, "It Ain't My Fault" at the the Gulf Aid benefit in New Orleans. Mos has since teamed up with Lenny Kravitz, Trombone Shorty, Tim Robbins, and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band to record a proper version of the song. Above, check out a live version of the song that resulted from an all night jam session. You can donate to the cause here.
