Mos Def Interview W/ Dj Semtex In London Part 1 [Video]

On the eve of copping his Grammy Nominations, Mos Def was in the UK and passed through 1xtra. Mos is one of the most important HipHop artists. Truthfully he could have gone the big business rapper route years ago, but he’s stayed true to himself and is purely focussed on the art of HipHop.

For me, Mos Def is one of the G.O.A.T.S. A legendary MC who can put together a hot album, but tear the arse out of any MC, his stage shows are truly unique.

This is the first part of the interview. Check out the full interview tonight on my 1xtra show.

Mos talks on:

*His approach to making albums.
*That Mos/J Cole/Jay Electronica/Talib Kweli collabo.
*The genius of Slick Rick.
*Mos Def vs. Hollywood
*Turning down a role in ‘Tropic Of Thunder’.

and more…..
