Video: Mos Def Explains Plans for Name Change

Mos Def tells Peter Rosenberg at Rock The Bells that he intends on changing his stage-name to Yasiin at the end of the year. If his explanation as to why doesn’t make sense, I remember reading somewhere that he had already changed his real name to that.

Mos Def, 1996-2011.

    But even if he does say something and win, he loses.

    Nothing is good to come from camels and gremlins bouting.

    yeah ive been a peyton hater but clearly the guy is a good qb

    im just saying this year alone, projected.

    he shouldnt have been near them

    but yeah guys legit

    not like his special ed brother

    Im sick of Jay-Z pussying out of war because he feels he is to Big for beef….foh

  8. Troubleshooter1900 Says:

    Yasiin

    ^wack. Go back to the drawing board and get back in the studio nigga.

    Don’t he got like 18 kids or some shit? He looks at Nas and prays for his situation.

  9. Jackson7 Says:

    i hate Payton Manning too..

    but dont get it twisted, that nigga is so on Brady and Rodgers level… if not higher… for more years and with less talent around him…

    that nigga is totally running the show… he’s his own offensive coordinator… them coach niggas on the sideline be in the headset saying, “Welp… what you wanna do here Mr. Manning?”… #18 be at the line of scrimmage directing traffic and pop-locking plays to his backs and receivers and whatnot…

    he’s a bad dude..

    bless his heart tho… the discs in his neck (no homo) finally gave out after all those years of supporting his cavernous Rey Hussein sized cranium …

  12. C. Dufflebags Says:

    Camel been pussy but it’s okay, his stans dont care if he dont respond

  13. Cypher Says:

    WHats the point…. wayne aint a lyricist… hell the lil nigga can barely form a coherent sentence let alone a verse focusing on one topic.

    sn- im part of the reason wayne did that milli… i based my purchase off of C3… when i should have based it off of that rock album and not a human being shit.

    never again… Wayne get the bittorrent treatment till he proves other wise

    fn- WTT was worth the money.. definitely day one purchase for whatever Jay or Ye drop

  14. Jackson7 Says:

    JayZ cant respond to Wayne for the same reason Budden shouldnt never respond to Lil B…

    straight men shouldnt be seen arguing with faggots in public…

    looks like niggas once dated…or still do

  15. MiddleClassJoe Says:

    Jay is also the only real candidate to put Dwayne and the rest of that monkey squad and their stans in their place…….That Wayne isnt the best anything and that he really sucks.

    One takeover-esque verse and its over for YMCMB……but nooooo Jay evades beef like the plague……….

    guess those ether nightmares are true.

    Manning’s a beast. He’s the reason Brady can’t really run away with the crown of best QB of the 00s, even if Brady probably gets it.

    Why does rap condone beef? No other musicians are expected/encourage to beef with their peers..

    I might still purchase WTT, but I still think half the songs are meh [other half are dope, though].

    ——————————————

    Barely, so I’d still wait for billboard.com to give the final verdict. Hitsdailydouble sometimes gets it wrong.

    But, if Wayne got that close to a milli, the label would buy the last thousand so it’s artist could get that milestone. The way the numbers look, they probably did just that.

  23. C. Dufflebags Says:

    In a way it’s smart for Jay to ignore the situation

    if he would go in on a verse or a whole song even Wayne would only have to respond with something a 10th as potent as Ether to blow jigga out the water

    NO ONE wants to see CAMEL win

  24. kevfrescura de talco Says:

    only person that hov can respond to already ethered him.

    there is no need to come at lesser colleagues.

  25. jderrida Says:

    If Jay really went @ wayne. Like wrote the best verse he’ll ever write.

    Like he calls Obama and the Prez gives him some captain america steroids for rapping.

    Nothing would change…Wayne would get diss and will keep on moving…

    Not like people stop buying niggas records if some rapper mentions their name in a song

  26. mcb Says:

    if you are seen by many as being on top, and youthen try to respond to every diss

    1, your gonna waste a lot of time/energy/lyrics on those rhymes
    2, your gonna look insecure, aka like a bitch
    3, if it isnt a profitable move, why would they do it

    jus saying

    did wayne ever respond to that clipse line basically saying back the fuck off? you know the abortion one?

    ———————————————-

    Jay started it though, so in effect he’s already deemed Wayne worth the attention. This isn’t like Beans or anything.

    And face it, even if the caliber of his album is shit, Wayne just more than doubled WTT’s first week numbers.

    And C4 has already sold more than WTT, in only a week.

  30. Troubleshooter1900 Says:

    But Wayne isn’t even dope. Son sounds like the hallucinations ^he sees when he off that lean in his cup.

    Shits pretty weak.

    I tho him doing a mill is dope though.

    I applaud him for that. Although, I think he’s affecting minds with faggortry and dumbness.

  34. RNC Chairman Michael Steele Says:

    That said, artistically, Jay still has dope verses in him from time to time. Wayne’s already fallen off, so Jay is way ahead there.

    And this beef<<<

  35. mcb Says:

    no wayne isnt that nice lyrically. but i dont care that people enjoy his music.

    i care when they get offended or feel the need to tell me why hes ill with his lines.

    i once had someone tell me after hearing the Sean Price “eat your food at noon celebrating ramadan” was stolen from wayne. i then proceeded to show them that Sean p’s album came out years before wayne said that line, and the fact that the two lines werent even the same

  37. RNC Chairman Michael Steele Says:

    word, but in 5 years maybe hell lose his fans when he really speaks on things that matter

    word to those people saying Nas lost it because its not about handling grams and packing gats

  39. MiddleClassJoe Says:

    It would be great for hiphop if Jay licked a couple shots(pause)

    Just to tell this little dude and his daddy to sit down.

    Like a Teacher sonning a disrespectful, overzealous student.

  40. jderrida Says:

    Jay didn’t even diss Wayne…

    Real shit niggas don’t have his lady’s money…

    We was being clever by using baby money…

    As a lady is taller/more mature than a baby…
    And B’s money is longer and prolly in plenty of financial instruments maturing as we speak

  41. Jackson7 Says:

    its time for Camel to leave some used condoms in Wayne’s babymommas carseats …

    Nivea >>>

  42. Cypher Says:

    WTT was/is a better album then C4… album sales really dont mean shit. JUst means that nigga wayne catered to more demographics..

    ex that “how to love” bs

    ALso the shot Jay thru a Stunna ( im not gonna call another grown man baby) was and offhand comment.. hell the shit was true, Jay got more money the Stunna and So does Beyonce.

    Also Wayne aint drop the diss when HAM came out he dropped it on his album.. so why would jay respond now?.. aint no money in it for him

  43. mcb Says:

    His bitch got Oprah money.

  47. Captain Planet Says:

    Wayne just sold more than Jay did …

    In one week

    You guys are talking like money is static

    Baby could end up richer off this rap shit than Jay-Z

    TIme waits for no one

  48. RNC Chairman Michael Steele Says:

    Wayne has some of that Eminem-type following I guess….

    I don’t get it….C3 has so much better buzz [although this album had more than people give credit for], and Wayne was in peak form as a rapper, stealing the show on guest verses, a flood of mixtapes and leaked songs, and his style wasn’t so overplayed and watered down like it is now…

    Yet this album did pretty much the same. Less than 800-900k would make more sense. It would be pretty easy to see him doing Em numbers, but he’s doing better. Wow.

  53. mcb Says:

    i dont give a FUCK about sales int erms of what i listen to. it could be a milli or 1000

    Niggas going be rapping about being CEO, forming monopolies and avoiding the SEC…

  57. Captain Planet Says:

    Drake got ladies and some niggas on lock

    I was sort of getting at this with my other post, but didn’t want to cross the line. Wayne’s a lot weirder than Drake.

    Wayne does sort of seem more “exotic” [pause] than someone like Drake. He’s like a rapping version of an 80s hair metal band. As far as his style [not musical] goes.

  116. jderrida Says:

    Music is subjective so I don’t care if you find Jay better than Wayne or vis a versa

    Money is good to have and Jay may have more and Wayne maybe making more from music but both niggas (hopefully) are set for 5 lifetimes

    The issues was the importance of beef between the two…It really isn’t an issue…

    point was you seem to be underestimating how much Jay has caked up over the course of his entire career versus wayne, who has had a shorter career and hit his commercial peak in an era with lower album sales.

    put it like this. only a fool is positive, but i’m damn near positive Jay’s Net Worth > Wayne’s Net Worth.

    that argument is dumb as shit anyway tho. if either of these niggas had balls they’d be calling each other out as emcees instead of money makers. lets talk about that.

  126. RNC Chairman Michael Steele Says:

    Nah Jay will probably send a a really good subliminal [don't lie, hes good at them], and that’ll be it for a while.

    Jay’s not the same rapper or artist he was. Jay would never try something like Takeover/Superugly today. He’s softened his image a lot since then [justifiably so].

    i seen it sometimes. it wouldnt work wonders at all, but if it wasnt an option, and they just gave one to each person witha ticket…

    Pretty clever to do for big name rapper.

    Or just do away with releasing music for money, and just charge more for the concerts while releasing free music and doing occasional promotion.

    If this isn’t the standard business model in ten years, just assume the record labels or on some Illuminati shit and is preventing shit from happening to keep their industry artificially solvent.

    You guys can really tell me that it’s no big deal that two of the biggest rap act of our era ( Kanye and Jay ) Selling HALF, I repeat HALF of what Weezy just sold

    The only numbers that matter –> 9.27.11 Cole World

    ^^^

    Lets think on this

    Cole ain’t selling shit

    and this maybe the first time were a rapper propelled by the mainstream blogs and with the help of a legit label and major co-signs flops

    Drake did it
    Cudi did it
    B.O.B. did it
    Wiz did it

    the problem is, is that you’d lose out on my money because you would miss out on a lot of wouldbe buyers that live in smaller venues.

    Maybe a subscription model would work tho… buy the jay subscription

    get one free concert ticket 1 album and 2 mixtapes.. and a camelback backpack
