    From 1999 Album: Black On Both Sides...(Click show more for artist info)...

    Born Dante Terrell Smith on December 11, 1973, in Brooklyn, NY, Mos Def began rapping at age nine and began professionally acting at age 14, when he appeared in a TV movie. After high school, he began acting in a variety of television roles, most notably appearing in 1994 on a short-lived Bill Cosby series, The Cosby Mysteries. In 1994 Mos Def formed the rap group Urban Thermo Dynamics with his younger brother and sister, and signed a recording deal with Payday Records that didn't amount to much. In 1996 his solo career was launched with a pair of high-profile guest features on De La Soul's Big Brother Beat and Da Bush Babees' S.O.S. A year later, in 1997, Mos Def released his debut single, Universal Magnetic, on Royalty Records, and it became an underground rap hit. This led to a recording contract with Rawkus Records, which was just getting off the ground at the time, and he began working on a full-length album with like-minded rapper Talib Kweli and producer Hi-Tek. The resulting album, Black Star (1998), became one of the most celebrated rap albums of its time. A year later came Mos Def's solo album, Black on Both Sides, and it inspired further attention and praise. Yet, aside from appearances on the Rawkus compilation series Lyricist Lounge and Soundbombing, no follow-up recordings were forthcoming, as the up-and-coming rapper turned his attention elsewhere, away from music.

    During the early 2000s, Mos Def acted in several films (Monster's Ball, Bamboozled, Brown Sugar, The Woodsman) and even spent some time on Broadway (the Pulitzer Prize-winning Topdog/Underdog). He simultaneously worked on the Black Jack Johnson project with several iconic black musicians: keyboardist Bernie Worrell (Parliament/Funkadelic), guitarist Dr. Know (Bad Brains), drummer Will Calhoun (Living Colour), and bassist Doug Wimbish (the Sugarhill Gang, Grandmaster Flash, Living Colour). This project aimed to reclaim rock music, especially the rap-rock hybrid, from such artists as Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst, who Mos Def openly despised. What made Black Jack Johnson so anticipated though was not so much the supergroup roster of musicians or even Mos Def himself, but rather the lack of black rock bands. Following the demise of Living Colour, there were few, if any, that had attained substantial success. Mos Def hoped to infuse the rock world with his all-black band, and during the early 2000s, he performed several small shows with his band around the New York area. In October 2004, he finally delivered a second solo album, The New Danger, which involved Black Jack Johnson on a few tracks.

    Two years later, after a few more acting roles — including the Golden Globe-winning Lackawanna Blues and the Emmy-winning Something the Lord Made, both of which were made-for-television movies — Mos Def released his third solo album, True Magic (2006). A contract-fulfilling release for Geffen, which had absorbed Rawkus years prior, the album trickled out in a small run during the last week of 2006. Bizarrely, the disc came with no artwork and was sold in a clear plastic case — though its single, Undeniable, did manage to grab a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Solo Performance. The Ecstatic, released on the Universal-distributed Downtown label, followed in June 2009; at that point, Mos Def had significant acting roles in Michel Gondry's Be Kind Rewind (in which he co-starred with Jack Black) and Cadillac Records (he played Chuck Berry).

    From 2000 Album: Lyricist Lounge Vol.2...(Click show more for artist info)...

    Lyricist Lounge 2 is the second installment in Rawkus Records Lyricist Lounge album series. The release was one of Rawkus' most commercially successful releases, featuring the hit crossover singles, Oh No and Get Up, the former charting on the Billboard Hot 100. Despite its success, Lyricist Lounge 2 drew criticisms from underground fans, mainly due to the album's more commercial sound, and also because of its focus on established artists, unlike the first installment, which largely featured up-and-coming MC's.

    The album features appearances from Mos Def, Pharoahe Monch, Nate Dogg, Q-Tip, Wordsworth, Cocoa Brovaz, Beanie Sigel, Royce Da 5'9, Ghostface Killah, Saukrates, Redman, Talib Kweli, dead prez, Kool G Rap, M.O.P., Big Noyd, Prodigy, Erick Sermon, Sy Scott, Planet Asia, Punchline, Cobra Red, Phil Da Agony, C-Town, Dilated Peoples, Master Fuol, JT Money, Pastor Troy, Macy Gray and Guru, as well as late hip hop legends The Notorious B.I.G. and Big L.

    Eminem Mos Def And Black Thought Freestyle At The Cypher

    3:08

    Yasiin Bey
    Featuring Black Thought & Eminem
    Produced by DJ Premier

    [Verse 1: Mos Def]
    For sinners, saints and scramblers and gamblers
    And dirty money handlers, dignitaries and champions, narcotic traffickers
    Talented number runners and racketeers
    Stars of stage, page and cameras, slang swingers and swaggerers
    Double barrels and Derringers, automatics and miracles
    Europe Asia and Africa, all the time in America
    Atlantic, Ashland, Alblemarle to Albany
    Bridge into Baltic, Bedford Ave, Bergen Street
    Clinton to Cadman, Church Ave to Clarendon
    Road to Central Avenue, Cooper House, Cypress
    And live from Bedford-Stuyvesant
    The livest high flyingest pilot bombardier from Pyrrhus
    Stationed live and direct, Medina mastermind set
    Ya can't lock my set now lock off, cool
    Peace to the nation of the Gods and the Earths
    And the Sun, Moon and Stars, furthermore born knowledge go hard

    [Verse 2: Black Thought]
    Remix, rising up out of the flames like a phoenix
    Straining to carry the weight of my brain like a genius
    Knowing I'm sowing seeds
    Let's see whose thumb is the greenest
    If I said it I mean it
    And did it because I need it
    Eat sleep it and bleed it
    Write it down and then read it
    Asphalt to the cement
    Your trash talk is deleted
    Blastoff, I lay them out like a Tempurpedic
    Black Thought, I told you I'ma win eventually
    This unsung, underrated, under appreciated
    The one them underachievers had underestimated
    Finally graduated from something that's so hated
    To one of the most sacred, nobody gonna take it
    Face it, I keep doing it well
    Doing it sans assistance is do it yourself
    Doing it below the radar, we doing it stealth
    Doing it again for Illadelph and who else
    But check it out
    Y'all see him on a job, see my eyes focused where the prize be
    I'm like Martin Luther King you like Rodney
    The difference is I give it everything inside me
    Dear Diary, my fans still swear by me
    Even though I'm late night now like here's Johnny
    Swimming with them great whites now is how to find me
    Funny how it break right down but never mind me
    I'm forever grimy, guess it's just Philly shining
    Rock rolla bi-polar like Phyllis Hyman

    [Verse 3: Eminem]
    Like a dope fiend opening up a bottle of dopamine
    You’re just hoping he don’t get rope for your throat to choke anything
    Oh and just think how dope he could be if he smoked anything
    Oh, there goes the bell, the sound of the opening ding
    I hit you as hard as barbiturates in the ribs with a switch
    And stitch you at the same time before you can flinch to it
    My dick is so big, if I add another inch to it
    You would swear when I raped you that you was actually into it
    I'm not a baller but you can bet your fucking bottom dollar
    That I remember when I was without a dollar bill in my wallet
    Now watch me kill a koala while I maul a chihuahua
    Bum a pill off of Paula like let me holler at you, mama
    It's like I'm off the bombom when I bring the fucking drama
    Used to bomb ya like Saddam but now that I'm a little calmer
    I'm a fucking cross between Osama, Dahmer, Obama, and Dalai Lama
    Tell Miley I'm a knight in shining armor
    Mail a gift to Taylor Swift's trailer a picture
    Of my genitalia with a note saying bitch, I can't wait to nail ya
    Drug paraphernalia
    Beware, the werewolf will kill ya
    That's him in the sheep's clothes, he just shaved his hair off, Cecilia

    Roy Hargrove Quintet feat. Yasiin Bey Live at Jazz à Vienne 2015 • NOW ON QWEST TV !

    Roy Hargrove Quintet feat. Yasiin Bey (Aka Mos Def) Live at Jazz à Vienne 2015

    Full show now on Qwest TV !

    Line up:
    Roy Hargrove (Trumpet)
    Justin Robinson (Alto saxophone)
    Sullivan Fortner (Piano)
    Amin Saleem (Double bass)
    Quincy Phillips (Drums)

    Special Guest:
    Yasiin Bey Aka Mos Def

    Director: Eric Michaud

    On this dazzling concert he leads his working band, a finely tuned quintet in which the trumpeter is well supported by alto saxophonist Justin Robinson and a very responsive rhythm section. Deeply influenced by legends such as Clifford Brown and Freddie Hubbard, Hargrove excels in this classic small group format in which unison lines, solos and glancing exchanges between the horns and pianist Sullivan Fortner take pride of place. As much as the players have a flawless command of punchy, zestful hard bop and soul jazz, they also sound wonderful on mellow numbers, particularly airy, mid-tempo ballads, where Hargrove’s tonal beauty shines through.

    Mos Def ft. Pharoahe Monch & Nate Dogg - Oh No Video & Lyrics in Description

    4:01

    Lyrics:
    [Mos Def]
    Yeah..
    One for the treble, two for the bass
    Welcome to the great incredible paper chase
    Keep your boots laced if you want to keep pace

    [Nate Dogg]
    Oh No
    Niggas ain't scared to hustle
    It's been seven days, the same clothes
    Ask them originals cause they know
    Mos Def, Nate Dogg, and Pharoahe
    Step away from the mic they too cold
    The funk might fracture your nose

    [Mos Def]
    Say my name, say my name
    Observe how I stake my claim, I independently lay it down
    and played my game, my own two raise my flame
    Cause dick ridin ain't my thang
    I earned what they said I wouldn't
    I got it the way they said I couldn't
    But now I'm gettin it and they whole grill is crooked
    Mad cause I'm gettin caked out from my bookings
    When y'all was askin permission I just stepped up and took it
    What!? The kid's better buy my rookie card now
    Cause after this year the price ain't comin down
    And if you got a joint bubblin then get money now
    Cause in a minute, there's gonna be some real trouble comin out
    Just a warnin, as usual some cats wont heed it
    The hard headed always gotta feel it to believe it
    It's a shame the jealous gaze is too short to see it
    But when they face hit the cement, they nod in agreement
    We could play nice and decent, or dirty like the 7-1 Precinct
    Call it a day or make it a long evenin
    You keep on schemin, man give me some more reason
    to have the women in your mama's church screamin Lord Jesus!
    Harder than y'all cause I'm smarter than y'all
    I know that deep down it's got to be bothering y'all
    Pay attention, watch fly gon' get larger than y'all
    Put your pride on the rocks, make you swallow it all
    The mathematic problem for y'all, it just get harder to solve
    Every day that the saga evolve
    The do or die stay rumblin and bumblin hard
    And when we move, we ain't got no discussion at all
    East coast on your neck and you ain't shruggin it off
    Try to bullyfoot and end up stumblin off
    I'm Daddy Brooklyn, y'all niggaz are the sons of New York
    Gettin spanked when there's too much trouble to talk
    Respect mine

    [Nate Dogg]
    Oh No
    Look at who they let in the back door
    From Long Beach to Brooklyn they know
    We rock from the East to West coast
    Queens salute to Pharoahe (you know)
    Step away from the mic they too cold
    The funk might fracture your nose

    [Pharoahe Monch]
    Very contagious raps should be trapped in cages
    Through stages of wackness, Pharoahe's raps are blazin
    And it amazes - me how you claim thug
    but go two-ways without SkyTel pagers
    I'm intellectual, pass more essays/ese's
    than motorcade police parades through East L.A.
    More beef then deli's, thus what I vent is just
    What you lust to vent is irrele'
    Huh, hallelujah, Pharoahe Monch'll do ya
    Maintain the same frame of mind - screw ya!
    Get the picture, sit ya, seat ya, preacher with scriptures
    I'm equipped to rip ya, reach ya
    Pharoahe and Mos is verbal osmosis
    Coast to coast, we boast to be the most explosive here
    Ferocious, the lyrical prognosis
    The dosage is leavin you mentally unfocused here
    MC's just - come on 'round
    You're the next contestants on Catch-A-Beat-Down
    Don't be hesitant, sound cracks the sediment
    It's evident we medicine for your whole town
    Sky's the limit, game's infinite when I'm in it
    All windows is tinted, how you seein me when I'm in it?
    Rap, we got it on lock man, stop that
    Put that mic back down, boy, drop that
    Pharoahe's flows blows shows like afros
    We hate y'all though, that's why Nate Dogg goes:

    [Nate Dogg: repeat 2X]
    Oh No
    Niggas ain't scared to hustle
    It's been seven days, the same clothes
    Ask them originals cause they know
    Mos Def, Nate Dogg, and Pharoahe
    Step away from the mic they too cold
    The funk might fracture your nose

    [Nate Dogg]
    Oh No
    Look at who they let in the back door
    From Long Beach to Brooklyn they know
    We rock from the East to West coast
    Queens salute to Pharoahe (you know)
    Step away from the mic they too cold
    The funk might fracture your nose

    Mos Def - Brooklyn

    5:11

    Dante Terrell Smith (born December 11, 1973), better known by his stage name Mos Def, is an American rapper and actor. Mos Def started his rap career as a member of the Native Tongue Posse collective and by guesting on albums by Da Bush Babees and De La Soul. He released a well-received album with Talib Kweli as Black Star, and was a major force in the late 1990s underground hip hop explosion spearheaded by Rawkus Records. His name comes from his frequent use of an abbreviated 'mos def' in place of the words most definitely.

    Initially recognized for his musical output, Def's screen work since the early 2000s has established him as one of only a handful of rappers who have garnered critical approval for their acting work. Def is also an outspoken critic on social and political issues, and was particularly vocal in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

    Massive Attack feat. Mos Def - I Against I

    5:42

    I-ya,
    I against I,
    flesh of my flesh,
    and mind of my mind,
    two of a kind but one won't survive,
    my images reflect in the enemies eye,
    and his images reflect in mine the same time,

    I-ya, I-ya,
    I against I,
    flesh of my flesh,
    and mind of my mind,
    two of a kind but one won't survive,

    Right here is where the end gon' start at,
    conflict, contact 'n' combat,
    fighters stand where the land is marked at,
    settle the dispute about who the livest,
    3 word answer,
    Whoever survive this,
    only one of us can ride forever,
    so you and I cant ride together,
    can't live or cant die together,
    all we can do is collide together,
    so I skillfully apply the pressure,
    won't stop until I'm forever... one!

    A door step where death never come,
    spread across time til my time never done,
    and I'm never done,
    walk tall, why ever run?
    when they move if I ever come?
    bad man never fret the war, tell'em come
    general we have the stock, the mad fire burn

    I-ya,
    I against I,
    flesh of my flesh,
    and mind of my mind,
    two of a kind but one won't survive,
    my images reflect in the enemies eye,
    and his images reflect in mine the same time,

    I-ya, I-ya,
    I against I,
    flesh of my flesh,
    and mind of my mind,
    two of a kind but one won't survive,
    survive (x16)

    Reign supreme in your U-N-I,
    V-E-R-S-E with the sharpness,
    narrow row building no space for partners,
    no space for drivers, no space for walkers,
    no space regardless,
    your on my path then get off it,
    hardheaded and unresponsive,
    get they lives put on target with harshness,
    come with the canons sparkin' they darken,
    who am i? one man squadron,
    Ma stir the fire this time that'd snatch your tomorrow,
    the thousand yard spear that'll pierce through your armor,
    you can get it on right now if you want to,
    but when ya front 9 get marched through,
    I warned you,
    You know who forever belong to,

    I-ya, I-ya
    I against I,
    flesh of my flesh,
    and mind of my mind,
    two of a kind but one won't survive,
    my images reflect in the enemies eye,
    and his images reflect in mine the same time,

    I-ya, I-ya,
    I against I,
    flesh of my flesh,
    and mind of my mind,
    two of a kind but one won't survive,
    my images reflect in the enemies eye,
    and his images reflect in mine, survive
    survive (x16)

    Mos Def Freestyling

    48

    This freestyle (among several others) can be found on the documentary 'Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme'.



    I recommend anyone to pick it up since it sheds a different light on Hip-Hop culture, different from the mainstream and bling bling garbage that has flooded the industry.

    Ni**as in Poorest - Final

    4:07

    PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO OUR CHANNEL:
    The artist formerly known as Mos Def, and now Yasiin Bey, presents the video for his highly charged Ni**as in Poorest, launched today in honor of Malcolm X's death anniversary. Performed over the same hard-hitting instrumental that The Throne rocked over, Bey is ferocious as he takes a socioeconomic approach to what people have dubbed luxury rap. While Mos Def wanted to know what Umi Says, Yasiin Bey is now telling it like it is.

    Mos Def - Speed Law

    4:22

    1999 song from Hip Hop album Black On Both Sides by rapper Mos Def.



    [Watch it]
    Relax, pump the brakes
    You're speeding money
    You'll smash your whole shit up [slow down]
    Lights be changing fast on these streets money, slow down
    [slow down] Sleeping on the wrong cats

    Clear like a megaphone
    Pretty nigga heart skipped the metronome
    Rocked the Trump Tower to the terrordome
    Poor house to pleasure domes
    Soprano, alto, tenor to baritone
    MOS DEF one of the illest that you ever known
    Rock steady baby, you a stepping stone
    Smash your foundation into pebbles
    My words leave your nerves unsettled
    You take it to the next level down
    Looking like a circus clown
    Cats like you can't even get a pound
    Worldwide from the river to lakeside
    My stage show stay live, make the sound man stage dive
    I cut fat cats to eight lives with my eight ball lines
    I'm home 'fore I'm done with all nine
    Got you shook like a fault line
    Come all shine and get tarnished
    Brooklyn got your pay roll garnished
    They form a huddle
    Whisper like they want trouble
    I melt the ice grills into rainwater puddles
    Make the proud-hearted leave on the humble
    Black steel in the hour
    Assemble my skill form my power
    My poems crush bones into powder
    You mumble like a coward
    I'm Mos Def, you need to speak louder
    SUPER HEREOE!
    Get your power, your masks and capes snatched
    Brooklyn take what you can't take back
    I know a lot of cats hate that
    All I can say black
    There's a city full of walls you can post complaints at
    All the doubters and believers adjust your receivers
    [I feel it] you can taste it through the speakers
    The three six oh-riginal sketch lyrics so visual
    They rent my rhyme books at your nearest home video

    Tell them cats they need to sit back and observe where they at
    Brook-nahm Vietnam
    The heat is on
    Put your joint on cruise
    Try to rush you scuff your brake shoes, just cool and relax
    Take a breath, take ten paces back
    Stay on time Omegas
    Brooklyn patrol like interstaters
    Take their license and their registration papers

    My joint's so passionate
    Make you peal out and mash your shit
    Get wild cold crash your whip
    Front chassis wrecked, but ock you can't be too upset
    Tow truck got my tape in the deck
    I'm permanent like tattoos and birth marks
    Third degree burn marks
    Driving on tracks like Dale Earnheart
    Stay on the low like the earth spot
    Put a big loss on your earn chart
    Nice since the nurse signed my birth chart
    Seldom seen but often heard, while your jams is barely heard
    Just my name is a daily word
    From avenues to streets, terraces and park places
    Stair wells, jail cells, penthouse to basements
    Arrangement basic, but still fans chase it
    Y2K can't delete the true ancient
    Apache war drum on the ranges
    Skill level dangerous
    Arrow head that killed all the cavemen
    They cry John-Blazing, but step on the pavement
    And get violated like a plaintiff
    I ain't shit to play with
    I give a Goddamn what your name is
    Delete it and make it so it never get repeated
    Believe it
    Tell the feds, tell your girl, tell your mother
    Conference call you wack crew and tell each other
    That they just ain't holding me
    I'm Mos Def, your hopefully
    Mush off or you get bust off like a ovary

    Tell them cats they need to ease back and observe where they at
    Brook-nahm Vietnam
    The heat is on
    Put your joint on cruise
    In a rush you scuff your brake shoes, just cool and relax
    Take a breath, take ten paces back
    Brook-nahm Vietnam
    The heat is on, no off-ramp or detour
    Make these gassed up jokers observe the speed law
    Make these gassed up clowns observe the speed law
    Make these gassed up clowns observe the speed law
    Cause they speedin, speedin, speedin, speedin, speedin,
    speedin, speedin, speedin, speedin, speedin,
    speedin, speedin, speedin, speedin, speedin
    Relax
    Slow down, you better chill money
    Lights be changing fast on these streets dude
    Smash your whole shit up
    You better cool out money
    It ain't like that out here
    Look at these cats man, it's funny man
    He probably just got that car
    About to fuck your whole shit up
    Speed laws out here money
    Knight riding cats
    In control like interstaters, state-ahs, state-ahs...
    state-ahs, state-ahs, state-ahs, state-ahs, state-ahs,
    state-ahs, state-ahs, state-ahs, state-ahs, state-ahs,
    Stay the.. FUCK off the road, money

    Stephen Marley feat Mos Def - Hey Baby

    4:08

    he estado muy alejado de ti por un tiempo
    y espero que lo entiendas
    que he debido hacer lo que tengo que hacer
    para ser un hombre mejor
    porque si tuviera que actuar como un tonto
    hacer nada conmigo mismo
    todas mis bendiciones estarian malditas
    y mi mundo se caería
    me alegro cuando me siento
    y pienso en los buenos momentos que pasamos
    y que hicimos para sobrellevarlos
    cuando los buenos momentos se tornaron malos
    bueno, espero que lo encuentres dentro de tu corazon
    y sepas que estas palabras son verdaderas
    y por favor no te escandalices
    porque debo ir a hacer lo que tengo que hacer

    (coro)
    hey baby no te preocupes
    aunque el camino es pesado
    ire a casa contigo de nuevo
    porque si pensabas que estaba perdido
    tuve que llevar mi cruz
    ahora soy libre de todas estas cadenas

    un tiempo, un espacio, un lugar diferente
    que tan perfecto podemos ser
    podria ser el viento que sopla
    tu podrias ser ese arbol de sauce
    y yo nunca podria deshojar tu pensamiento de no estar a mi lado
    asi yo sería el calor del dia
    tu serias el frio de la noche
    y cada dia le rezo a Jah para que un dia veas
    y entiendas el hecho de que debo realizar mi destino
    espero que lo encuentres dentro de tu corazon y sepas que estas palabras son verdaderas
    y por favor no llores
    porque sabes que debo hacer lo que tengo que hacer

    (coro)
    hey baby no te preocupes
    aunque el camino es pesado
    ire a casa contigo de nuevo
    porque si pensabas que estaba perdido
    tuve que llevar mi cruz
    ahora soy libre de todas estas cadenas

    bueno, no es facil
    Jah sabe cuanto he intentado, e intentado
    asi que no te hartes
    Jah sabe cuanto he intentado, e intentado

    (verso de MOS DEF)
    Dios sabe, la vida es una gran carretera
    con varios signos y giros y serpenteos y curvas
    y aunque el camino sea pesado
    mi proposito es rockear y seguir rockeando
    de ciudad en ciudad y de patios a jardines
    y veremos las siluetas parados bajo las luces
    y el foco está fuerte, está helado y solitario de noche
    y estoy **'feenin** y estoy soñando y te estoy sosteniendo fuerte
    pero espera, cada camino que aplano
    llega a un fin y estoy de vuelta en casa nuevamente
    asi que baby por favor no llores
    no existe un valle bajo, y no hay una montaña alta
    y nuestro amor no muere con el paso del tiempo
    tan solo crece mas, y sigue tan firme
    y aunque me haya ido, nunca estoy tan lejos
    tu eres la luz entre la oscuridad brillando directamente hacia mi corazon
    asi que mi viaje recien comienza

    (coro)
    hey baby no te preocupes
    aunque el camino es pesado
    ire a casa contigo de nuevo
    porque si pensabas que estaba perdido
    tuve que llevar mi cruz
    ahora soy libre de todas estas cadenas

    (outro)
    y si pensaste que estaba perdido, tuve que llevar mi cruz
    ahora soy libre de todas estas cadenas
