Mos Def really needs no introduction, as he is one of hip-hop's most revered artists, and, without a doubt, a success in transcending definitions of underground and mainstream. The hip-hop hero gave an exclusive performance yesterday for a group of lucky Musicians Institute students who packed the on-campus venue and had no problem showing their appreciation for his words and beats.
As per usual, Mos put on an amazing show, and even held an informal Q&A session afterward. He shared stories of experiences, offered inspiring insight, and passed on his industry knowledge to the wide-eyed students. Entertainment followed by invaluable music wisdom? No wonder he's an icon.
