Mos Def (aka Yasiin…?)

A few years back, conscious rappers were finally becoming all the rage and getting their dues, and Dante Smith was one of my faves. I mean, who doesn’t thoroughly enjoy “Ms. Fat Booty”? Or “Umi Says”? Despite his modest chart showings for albums like The New Danger, Mos seemed to concentrate more on his acting opportunities than rapping after a while. As of recent, he’s signed with Kanye West’s GOOD Music, so we’re hoping Yeezy’s golden touch can help brighten up my boo’s own career. He’s too lyrically gifted to be an afterthought folks!
