Conscious Rapper Yasiin Bey, formerly known as Mos Def has always been the type of rapper who stands for more then grills and bling. Years ago he was a part of a group called Blackstar along with rapper Talib Kweli and he is still one of the most underrated artist out there on the hip hop circuit. Well he has done it again with a new video where he is standing up for what he considers cruelty to detainees in Guantanamo Bay! While disturbing to watch, there are not many men out there who would stand up for a cause to this degree!

This is something we should all be aware of and I have to admit I have to do a little homework myself. You have to respect a man who not only talks about it, but will go to the point of partaking in it as well. Musically he has been on hiatus, but  I am sure this is not the last that we will hear of him.
