Mos Def is hands down one of the best hip hop artist of our time. His first release with Talib Kweli under the group name Black Star was packed with soulful jazzy beats and poetic lyrics it quickly became an instant classic. Years later, Mos Def dropped his first solo album, Black on Both Sides which was just s good if not better than the Black Star album. Mos Def is known for touching on spiritual and political issues with deep sympathy and humor. In addition to being a hip hop genius he has bona fide acting and vocal skills. The boy got talent! So, when I heard about him performing at the Kennedy Center with a full orchestra my emotions went from shock to pure delight. It's about time Mos Def got recognized for what he is; an amazing artist.
