Mos Def is now "Yasiin Bey" ?


good career move?
bad career move?
potential free publicity?
Mos who?
Penetration who?

I think he gave permission to Stephen Colbert to use the name Mos Def.

Everytime I see Yasiin Bey on Real Time with Bill Maher, I can never understand what he's saying. Kind of a mumbler. I'd say he's a religious left winger type. Progressive by name, but Conservative by religious constraint? Sounds like some shit that would keep me up all night with those conflicting beliefs. Cognitive Dissonance is what he should change his name to hahaha.

Also Yasiin was on the last season of Dexter and Gorillaz - Plastic Beach.

Grotuce, you gotta know this guy...

I've heard of him, just not (knowingly) heard him.
I'll check him out. I've heard Talib Kweli, who is rather on the "meh" side of things.
