Not content with being one of the most important figures in Hip Hop music and culture, Mos Def has established himself as both a respected mc and poet as well as an award-winning actor. During a prolific music career spanning just over a decade he has worked with an illustrious list of artists including Talib Kweli, The Roots, Robert Glasper, De La Soul, The Neptunes and Madlib to name but a few.
Somehow in all this time he has also managed to fit in roles in TV series and films as diverse as House, Monster's Ball, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Michel Gondry's Be Kind Rewind. His recent appearance in Gorillaz' new single suggests he isn't about to slow down any time soon.
This April sees the true modern-day, multi-talented, multi-media icon hit the UK for an un-missable series of very special, exclusive live performances in London and Bristol!
