One of the most important figure in hiphop music and culture, the Mighty Mos Def can not be tested. As an accomplished lyricist, Mos Def has worked with just about anyone you can think of in the 'underground' hiphop world ( the Roots, Talib Kwelli, De La Soul, Common, etc). As a pop culture icon, Mos Def is quickly becoming a house hold name as he has appeared in movies and televisions shows.

If you haven't heard the Black Star album, Black on Both Sides, or anything else from the Might Mos, the you don't know what you've been sleeping on.
