Beware of artists

Mos Def is one of the most talented artist in the world. I do not know Mos Def but I wish I did, from simply listening to his music to watching the most random Youtube videos of him, I get a strong feeling for the mans character: "Cool as hell.". There is one video I recently watched that sticks out the most though; Mos Def was discussing how he gets paid at most of the shows he performs at(very humoriously might I add), and near the end he quotes Queen victoria. He says "Beware of artists - they mix with all classes of society and are therefore most dangerous..." -Queen Victoria. This quote and the explanation Mos Def gives immediately after stating it, not only attest to his wealth of knowledge and cleverness, but the quote in it self touches me on like a deep ass "DAMN" level. I cannot do it any justice through writing, so just watch the video.



  1. Mos Def has always been one of my favorite rap artist for some time now.

  2. Top 5 artist of all time he is probably the most talented artist out today. When looking at his ability to write a rap with depth and even if you don't understand you can still feel, his sheer rhythm and flow.
