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.
