Yasiin Bey (b.k.a. Mos Def) gave Kanye West a call the other night after being arrested in South Africa for violating local immigration laws while trying to leave the country. He’s been detained in Cape Town while he and his family will have 14 days to vacate the country. The voicemail finds Bey explaining his current situation while dropping a freestyle of sorts with the same cadence as Mr. West’s recently released “No More Parties In LA.” The 11-minute message also finds Bey stating his immediate retirement from hip hop and Hollywood. He will drop one last album this year though.
Give it a listen. Hopefully this isn’t the last we hear from the artist formally known as the Mighty Mos Def.
