A child of hip-hop’s Golden Era, the native Brooklynite and one of hip-hop’s most introspective and insightful artists, Mos Def has shaped a career that transcends music genres and artistic medium.

In the spirit of the Afrocentric stylings of the Native Tongues crew, which included De La Soul, Jungle Brothers, A Tribe Called Quest and Andres Titus, Mos Def has emerged as one of the more conscientious voices of new school hip-hop, alongside the likes of Common, Outkast, Goodie Mob and The Roots, to name just a few.
