Happy Birthday 48th To A Hip Hop Legend, Mos Def!

Today, December 11th, is the birthday of one of the most underrated rappers of all time, Mos Def. The Brooklyn, NY native has been around the game for about 20+ years and, in my opinion, has not received his due for what he’s contributed to the history of Hip Hop. A part of that may be due to Def not being as active with music as you’d like a person with his skill set to be. Instead, he’s spent some of good time driving in the TV and film industry as well with a filmography as long as, or longer than, his discography.

So, to honor this Hip Hop legend, I would like to share some of my favorite videos and clips, music or otherwise, showcasing Mos Def’s talent.
