Mos Def continues to take over the world. The Brooklyn-born hip-hop phenom is back in movie theaters, this time with Jack Black in Michel Gondry’s Be Kind Rewind. So it’s time to check in with this man of music, television, theater, film, and political activism (he’s been busy, for example, on that whole Jena 6 front). Tonight, the 92nd Street Y hosts Mos Def in Conversation with Rolling Stone contributing editor
Anthony DeCurtis, author of In Other Words: Artists Talk About Life and Work. Mos Def, no doubt, will have plenty to discuss—from his experiences in the entertainment industry to the state of the nation.
