I just want to say that Mos Def is one of my favorite people, and one of my favorite thinkers and speakers, so its a special pleasure to post some of his videos.
Mos Def is a renaissance man, he performs and is able to articulate his expression with such depth in almost every capacity imaginable. Acting, spoken word, theater, fashion, social & political activist, a debater are amongst his many talents and designations. As a Muslim, many Islamic ideals, practices and morals intersect in his work and many times are shown through his character and his involvement with most prominent topics to our community. I am an absolute hip hop fan and am always fascinated with the work and subjects Mos Def speaks on and works with.

YOU CAN DO IT...
" “If I can do it, so can you.” That’s what I’ve been preaching to friends and colleagues since I started this terrain. Late nights, early mornings and sacrificed weekends is what it takes, but the rewards offset the inconveniences. So many of these crazy talented folks are dissatisfied with their professional lives so I wrote The Manifesto to be that annoying “you can do it” voice in the background. The Manifesto also gets a bit preachy about the sacrifice of the arts in our schools, because as a father of little ones I want them to master their A-B-Cs and 1-2-3s AND their Red-Green-Blues and E-A-D-G-B-Es...

I am an introvert with inborn idiosyncrasies,
and I can inspire so don’t insinuate I am an idiot,
my intelligence indicates otherwise.
I like to draw and doodle, I like to make words rhyme, I like to stare into and read weighty books at long lengths, I like to reminisce while flipping through photo albums, and I like doing this often being left alone in peace and quiet.* *Please Allah protect this, for it is He who made me what’s good in me today.
Growing up a secret introvert was tough given the fact that it appeared as if every other family we were friendly with had kids that were gifted and comfortable with public displays of their talents. I despised the encounters we had with some of these families because each time we met or communicated something else would crop up which shadowed my achievements. I find it a reoccurring occurrence with immigrated Indian families, when at the parents' relentless behest the children have to do something they aren't prepared to do, and I believe this often times has to do with adults wanting to live vicariously through their kids. My own parents have pushed me oft times to participate or get involved with activities that don’t take into consideration my interests or my preferences.
