Description

One of hip-hop's fastest rising stars, Mos Def's intelligent nice-guy flows have earned him the respect of fans and fellow artists alike. His rhyme style is laid-back but lyrical, and you'll never find him indulging in the playa/mafioso/millionaire fantasies epitomized by current industry trends. He has appeared on numerous comps including Soundbombing 2 , NY State of Rhyme No. 2 , Lyricist Lounge Vol 1, and Superrappin'. He is also in high demand as a collaborator, working with the likes of Co Flow, the Roots, De La, and Q-Tip, to name but a few. In 1998 he teamed up with Talib Kweli for the excellent Black Star LP, followed by his critically acclaimed solo disc, Black On Both Sides (1999). Mos is currently working with a live rock band called Jack Johnson, and flexing his acting skills in feature films such as MTV's Carmen and Spike Lee's Bamboozled.
