Mos Def is awesome! He's so cool - Black Star, solo, acting, whatever. Last week he started filming a movie with director Michel Gondry called Be Kind Rewind where his coworker Jack Black becomes magnetized and destroys all the videotapes, so they have to reshoot/ reenact all the movies together on home video starting with Ghostbusters and working their way on from there. It's gonna be great!
Also last week, he was arrested for singing about Hurricane Katrina in public.
