Fuck wack. He'll be remembered as Mos Def anyway and wtf is a Yasiin. I guess dude is sick of being placed with all the hundreds of Hip hop artists starting with the letter "m". Poor Yasiin :(

Yasiin & Talib. Has a nice ring to it.

I don't mind the name. I'll probably tag all his new stuff as "Mos Def", though... I'm not messing up my Last.FM charts. Haha.

He says this in the beginning of ''No Hay Nada Mas'' off ''Ecstatic'':


"Flaco, llamame Flaco, pero mi primer nombre es Yasiin Dante, mi appelido es Bey"

Why change it in 2012? he's got a schedule for his name change, to me it feels like he is tryna get more in touch with his muslim name, or whatever he is, just in case anything happens in 2012, only reason i could see for a "scheduled name change"

Any chance he's doing this to get out of a record contract?

Mos Def has praised MF DOOM's work in a handful of audio clips on the net...To me, Mos changing his name exemplifies him trying to mimic DOOM's style.

I think he is doing something similar in that he always rocks with his red, old school microphone. A gimmick can't hurt. Gimmicks are used by countless successful artists in all formats.

Doom BARELY changed his name. I doubt mos is trying to cultivate some shady alter ego or anything. Also using a mic is a gimmick???? Nah. I think the name change is because of his faith. Doesn't make the move less awkward but Cmon he's not on dooms Jock or trying to gain exposure with some gimmick. He's mos fucking def

Now Snoop is the latest to get enlightened and that somehow necessitates a name change, no? Bob Marley reincarnated though? Seriously?

Snoop is an American celebrity, class a type. Nuff said.


Love the music but mr Lions performance is lacking, no big surprises speaking of LaLa track).

Based on the trailer and what I've read about this, Snoop's name change makes more sense than Mos Def's imo
Never been a big fan of Snoop's music, but he's a good dude. Wish him luck with the change in music, which sounds even more like a change in how he's deciding to live and whatnot

Also, lol @ the idea of Bob Marley reincarnated
