Nobody in Africa like South Africans, so why Mos Def was in South Africa is beyond me, doesn't he know that those guys are Afrophobic? SMH!

You know the name change really wasn't successful when they gotta put "AKA Mos Def" after Yasin Bey on every headline

This fool couldn't find out if they accepted that bullsh t passport before he attempted to roll through customs??? He could have looked that up online or made one phone call to the airport...

Again... Yet another example of a "lyrical" rapper being dumb as sh t. Just because a rapper writes his lyrics with a dictionary and thesaurus next to him does not mean he is deep or intelligent. Go ask Nas about how His ugly a** ex wife played him and that bankruptcy... Another "lyrical" rapper.

Now get mad at the truth
