Paulina says: If Mos Def is going to wear a skirt I think its best its Kente –don’t you?
I missed the mass hysteria surrounding conscious rapper, Yasiin Bey, the artist formerly known as Mos Def's decision to wear what many perceived as just a ‘skirt’ in March, –and had to dig deeper when I saw the above photo and read some of the rumours and comments flying around!!!
The thing is………….. many believe there’s some sort of ‘Gay Agenda’ going on in the Land of Hip-Hop-Hooray, and while some can accept the likes of Puffy (or Diddy or what-have-you), Trinidad James, actor Omar Epps or Kanye –even, wearing the ‘dress’ or the ‘skirt’, many were not having it with much beloved rapper –Mos Def.
Anywayssssss, regardless of ‘whatever’ –I truly believe that Yasiin Bey, the artist formerly known as Mos Def –who now resides in South Africa, was wearing a Kente wrap, not just because it is comfortable but because of its cultural significance. Some people need to get a grip!!!!
