    From 1999 Album: Black On Both Sides

    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).

    ✘ About me...

    Born and raised in Bulgaria, currently living in Munich, Germany, I start listening to hip-hop when I was 12. I discovered the culture through legendary names such as KRS-One, Public Enemy, Biggie, Nas, Guru and Pac.
    I started making beats as soon as my mom bought me a 150 $ second hand PC and I found a way to instal Fruity Loops on it.
    My work is highly influenced by Premier, J Dilla, 9th Wonder, Just Blaze, Alchemist and Pete Rock. Even though the boombap sound is in the center of my production I constantly try to experiment and incorporate different genres and sounds in my music. Here I upload some compilations of classic instrumental music and also my beat tapes, my instrumentals and my own sounds...

    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
    (Rom 10:9-13)

    And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
    Acts 2:38 ESV]

    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

  • Mos Def - Im Leaving

    5:38

    Lyrics :


    yeah
    yo yo what time the plane leaving?
    alright, see you at the airport

    I'm leaving, on the next plane
    I don't know when I'll be back again
    Kiss me and smile for me
    Tell me that you'll wait for me
    Hold me, like you know I'll never go
    Even though you know I will
    I'm a travelling man
    moving through places
    space and time
    got a lot of things I got to do
    but God willing I'm coming back to you
    my baby-boo
    I'm a travelling man
    moving through places
    space and time
    gotta lotta things i got to do
    but God willing I'm coming back to you
    my baby-boo
    I'm leaving

    Well go'head and leave
    the call heard around the world from the wives of MCs
    these cats is paying more than half a pound
    my garment bag'll snatch it down
    Ain't got the skate, but we can probably run it back in town
    scenarios like this is tear jerkers
    for the modern emcee, ie. the blue collar worker
    Cause this thing called rhyming, no different than coal mining
    we both on assignment, to unearth the diamond
    while you start climbing in 'em, I start shining
    you be struggling and striving
    and they think you prime timing
    maintain and keep silent
    make note and observation
    this confrontation
    this is the daily operation
    my concentration
    stay focussed on my recitation
    bout to reach my destination
    with no pause or hesitation
    baby make the preparation
    cause this ain't no recreation
    this is pro-ball
    and we lettin' you know y'all
    at the show y'all
    Doing this for doe y'all
    get the phone call
    and I'm ready to blow y'all
    bout to go y'all
    been a pleasure to know y'all
    and I'm lettin' you know that

    I'm leaving, on a jet plane
    I don't know if I'll be back again
    Kiss me and smile for me
    Tell me that you'll wait for me
    Hold me, like you know I'll never go
    Even though you know I will
    i'm a travelling man
    moving through places
    space and time
    gotta lotta things i got to do
    But Inshallah I'm coming back to you
    my baby-boo
    I'm a travelling man
    moving through places
    space and time
    got a lot of things I got to do
    but Inshallah I'm coming back to you
    my baby-boo
    I'm leaving

    But God willing I'll be back home
    to drop these heavy ass bags up off my back bone
    around the world with a catalogue of rap songs
    my baby girl is walking, been away for that long
    but no you haven't well at least that's how it seem to me
    my hometown is like a whole different scenery
    the old timers on the stoop leaning leisurely
    the new jacks up in the parks smoking greenery
    easily take it for granted when you up in it
    but it's sweet scented, when you been down for a minute
    move around city limits, break 'em down with the vinitage
    the inovinin', classical b-boy image
    collect the winnings
    cause it the reason that we came here
    this thing is not a game here
    the fortune not the fame here
    from New York to the Cackalacks
    Cali and the Cadillacs
    Chicago no we innovate
    Infiltrate Virginia state
    DC make me stimulate
    Philly know we penetrate
    Georgia make us generate
    Let's set a date to get the papes
    they celebrate to my jams in foreign lands
    even your mans in Japan know who I am
    Menasun, make everybody out in Nippon
    say ichiban, me God man bo where you hitting from
    phenomenon
    scuse me that's a phone call
    it's a show y'all
    trying to get this doe y'all
    bout to blow y'all
    been a pleasure to know y'all
    and I'm lettin' you know

    I'm leaving, on a jet plane
    I don't know if I'll be back again
    Kiss me and smile for me
    Tell me that you'll wait for me
    Hold me, like you know I'll never go
    Even though you know I will
    I'm a travelling man
    moving through places
    space and time
    But Inshallah I'm coming back to you
    my baby-boo
    I'm a travelling man
    moving through places
    space and time
    got a lot of things I got to do
