EW Exclusive! Mos Def and Lenny Kravitz perform the Gulf Aid track, 'Ain't My Fault.'

We’ve just got our hands on the rather nifty video for “Ain’t My Fault,” the track which Mos Def, Lenny Kravitz, the Preservation Hall Band, Trombone Shorty, and Tim Robbins have recorded to benefit Gulf Aid, the nonprofit established in response to the oil spill off the Louisiana Coast. Mos Def performed the track at a relief concert in New Orleans yesterday—a show that also featured Kravitz, Allen Toussaint, Dr. John, and Kermit Ruffins, and which will air on FUSE this Saturday night. But you can see the video after the jump.

Take a look, tell us what you think, and, obviously, feel free to make a donation.

    This is not a new song, this is a rap put to the music of “It Ain’t My Fault ” By Smokey Johnson one of the greatest New Orleans drummers of all time

  • Todd H. Page

    Exactly what Mos Jeff said.

    This is great, totally diggable, but not original. My jazz band plays this, too.
