Mos Def

About his faith, rapper Mos Def has said, “I’m a private person, but I’m certainly not ashamed of what I believe. To not speak about my faith for fear of reprisal would be terrible. If people are uncomfortable with my Islam, they should check themselves.”

The rapper also changed his name to Yasiin Bey.

“[I don’t want] to deal [anymore] with having any moniker or separation between the self that I see and know myself as.”
