So late Tuesday night Yasiin Bey, better known to most as rapper Mos Def sent out a 10 plus minute message via friend Kanye West website.
Earlier in January of this year, Mr. Bey was arrested by South African officials for illegally living in the nation-state since 2013. Mr. Bey also announces that he will be retiring from film and music this year after his final album is released.
What seems to be the root cause of the immigration issue facing Bey is his use of a World Passport, and it not being recognized by South African government officials. You can read up more on the World Passport here.
Listen to the message from Yasiin Bey, and let’s hope all turns out well for one of the illest lyricist to bless the mic.
