Text Quotes
I’m retiring the Mos Def name after 2011. I’m actually doing it  (Mos Def Quotes) Live now for the promise of the Infinite  (Mos Def Quotes) Man, I smashed her like an Idaho Potato  (Mos Def Quotes) Make today’s solid ground out of yesterday’s quicksand  (Mos Def Quotes) At its heart, music is all higher mathematics  (Mos Def Quotes) I’d bet a million dollars on DOOM against Lil’ Wayne  (Mos Def Quotes) Mos Def is one of the most creative, intelligent human beings I’ve had the opportunity to work with. He is fun. The entire time, he would go in and out of different characters, just for the fun of it. Awesome energy  (Mos Def Quotes) Bob Marley performed the ‘One Love Peace’ concert in Jamaica with the two different warring political sides. There’s always been that in black music and culture in general. It’s no surprise because black music is such a reflection of what’s going on in black life. It’s not unusual for hip-hop  (Mos Def Quotes) If you’re going to do Chuck Berry, you got to, you know, go all out, and the duck walk is just kind of you know, cursory. That’s like standing  (Mos Def Quotes) Hip-hop is a beautiful culture. It’s inspirational, because it’s a culture of survivors. You can create beauty out of nothingness  (Mos Def Quotes) What I take from writers I like is their economy - the ability to use language to very effective ends. The ability to have somebody read something and see it, or for somebody to paint an entire landscape of visual imagery with just sheets of words - that’s magical  (Mos Def Quotes) It wouldn’t be fair to cast aspersions on an entire cultural movement based on the actions of a few. To quote my grandfather, ‘One bad apple don’t spoil the whole bunch.’  (Mos Def Quotes) I began to fear that Mos Def was being treated as a product, not a person, so I’ve been going by Yasiin since 99. At first it was just for friends and family, but now I’m declaring it openly  (Mos Def Quotes) I can’t control what people think. I’m not trying to manipulate people’s thoughts or sentiments. I write all the time. You have to experience life, make observations, and ask questions. It’s machine-like how things are run now in hip-hop, and my ambitions are different  (Mos Def Quotes) I play the guitar. This year at the Sundance film festival, I joined the band from ‘The Guitar’ on stage. We warmed up for Patti Smith, and then the director Michel Gondry got on the drums to play some songs from the soundtrack to his film Be Kind Rewind with Mos Def. It was pretty mad  (Mos Def Quotes) There are a lot of people who call themselves teachers or leaders, but they’re really just propagandists  (Mos Def Quotes) I just don’t think it’s very dignified to ask people to like you. You can just wind up being somebody’s ottoman  (Mos Def Quotes) With guys I revere, like Marcus Garvey or Malcolm X, their look is less about style than purpose and the expression of beauty. It wasn’t just about being noticed, you know?  (Mos Def Quotes) I was taught when there’s somethin’ you can change around keep quiet, you got nothin’ to complain about  (Mos Def Quotes) I have no confidence issues with the impact or the quality of the music. No one in hip-hop, before this point and to this point, with all due respect, has done this  (Mos Def Quotes) My Umi said shine your light on the world, shine your light for the world to see  (Mos Def Quotes) Don’t look down, it’s an impossible view; Fly like an eagle whatever you do  (Mos Def Quotes) African art is functional, it serves a purpose. It’s not a dormant. It’s not a means to collect the largest cheering section. It should be healing, a source a joy. Spreading positive vibrations.  (Mos Def Quotes) I’m trying to get low. People’s personalities can get in the way of their own work.  (Mos Def Quotes) And remember don’t high post when you’re far from home, and high posting when you’re all alone.  (Mos Def Quotes) I thought everybody got into rock ‘n’ roll because they didn’t want to follow instructions.  (Mos Def Quotes) I don’t want to waste anyone’s time or money. I want to give people some truth and positive heart lift.  (Mos Def Quotes) I ain’t no perfect man I’m tryna do the best that I can with what it is I have  (Mos Def Quotes) Everything’s got space between it, the planets, trees, your eyes. Your eyes get too close together, it’s a whole different world. You can lose perspective.  (Mos Def Quotes) I’m an independent thinker. And I’m not the poster child for any movement. I’m trying to support whatever’s right no matter where it is.  (Mos Def Quotes)
